Power routed to Pin 2 of M12 CAN connectors

Post by dfcossio » Wed 6. Dec 2017, 17:49

Hi,
I was wondering if it is possible to route the voltage of the external power supply to the pin 2 of the CAN M12 connectors on the PCAN-USB X6 so I can provide power to my CAN sensors using the same cable.

I've attached the pin out of my CAN sensor

Thanks in advance!

Sorry, this is NOT possible ! The GND (U- Pin 3) could not be used, because this is the isolated GND of the CAN Transceiver and it is NOT connected to the Supply GND !
