RTC with battery backup (resolution)
All loggers except the CL1000 have a real-time clock for timestamping each data frame with the absolute date & time. The CANedge timestamp resolution is 20x higher than the CLX000, which is linked to the fact that the CLX000 is able to log up to ~1000 frames/second, while the CANedge is designed for lossless logging at any busload

SD card logging
All loggers have an 8 GB SD card as the default card (optional 32 GB SD card upgrade)
YesYesYesYes...
10
Industrial & extractable SD
The CLX000 enables log file transfer via USB (~0.5 MB/s), while the CANedge enables log file transfer via the extractable industrial micro SD card (~80 MB/s)
YesYes...
11
Log file format
The CLX000 logs in a simple CSV-style TXT format. The CANedge logs in the MDF4 (.MF4) log file format is a standardized and popular binary format for logging e.g. CAN bus and LIN bus data. It is supported by various existing software and API tools
TXTTXTMDF4 (MF4)MDF4 (MF4)
12
Cyclic logging
Cyclic logging lets the device overwrite the oldest file once the SD card is full
YesYesYesYes...

Silent modeYesYesYesYes...
14
Bit-rate auto detection
The device can auto-detect the bit rate for most applications. It is also possible to select a manual bit-rate from a list of standard bit-rates. Further, the CANedge supports advanced bit-rate customization
YesYesYesYes...
15
Filters & prescaling
The CLX000 supports up to 8 "acceptance" CAN ID filters using "masks", while the CANedge supports 64 extended or 128 regular CAN ID filters per channel. The CANedge filters can be set to either "acceptance" or "rejection" - and you can define both "masks" and "ranges" for the filters. The CLX000 supports basic 'Count' prescaling to log only e.g. every 5th frame. The CANedge supports both a Count, Time and Data prescaler type

16
Transmit lists
The CLX000 supports up to 20 custom transmit frames, while the CANedge supports up to 64 custom transmit frames per channel

17
Control signal (trigger)
The CLX000 supports start/stop of logging based on the presence of a specific CAN ID. The CANedge extends this to be able to trigger logging/transmitting on specific databyte values as well (e.g. if EngineSpeed exceeds a specific threshold)
BasicBasicAdvancedAdvanced...
18
Data compression & encryption
The CANedge enables optional compression of data to reduce file size by 50-80% vs. uncompressed data (and vs. the CLX000 log files). Further, the CANedge can encrypt data so that it can only be read via a password - e.g. to ensure GDPR/CCPA compliance as well as ensure that the data has not been tampered with
YesYes...

Streaming
21
USB streaming to PC
The CLX000 has a USB connector to allow streaming of data in real-time via USB to a PC. The streamed data can be displayed in Wireshark and e.g. analyzed for reverse engineering using our free Wireshark plugin

24
Secure WiFi data transfer
The CANedge2 can auto-push log files via WiFi access points (incl. e.g. 3G/4G USB hotspots) to your own S3 server (e.g. an AWS S3 cloud or a free MinIO S3 server). Data can be uploaded via HTTP or secure HTTPS. The WiFi connection also allows the CANedge2 to auto-sync the RTC to ensure that large fleets of devices are in time sync

Software tools
28
Configuration editor
The CLX000 INI config can be modified via a text editor or via the free CANvas software. The CANedge JSON config can be modified via a text editor or the free online/offline editor tools. For the CANedge2, we also provide a simple batch manager tool for updating multiple devices over-the-air
YesYesYesYes...
29
DBC conversion support
The CLX000 log files can be DBC converted via the free CANvas software. The CANedge log files can be DBC converted via e.g. the free open source asammdf software or Python API
YesYesYesYes...
30
Convert data to e.g. ASC, TRC, ...
The CLX000 log files can be converted to Vector ASC or PEAK TRC via the CANvas software tool. The CANedge log files can be converted via simple drag & drop converters, which can also be used in scripts or via the command line. The CANedge converters also support other formats like CSV, LOG, PCAP and the CLX000 TXT format
YesYesYesYes...
31
Graphical plot support
The asammdf GUI enables easy graphical plots of DBC converted data
YesYes...
32
Data processing API
The CANedge log files can be processed via Python APIs for e.g. automatic analysis of large amounts of data. Further, S3 APIs can be used for easily managing uploaded data & device files on your server - enabling fully automated systems e.g. for BI integration or data dashboards
YesYes...
33
Telematics "cockpit"
CANcloud is a free optional browser tool for the CANedge2. It lets you log in to your server via the browser and manage your connected devices & data. For example you can monitor devices in the field via the status dashboard and perform easy over-the-air updates
