It does input and ouput .
"Provides 3 digital inputs and 2 digital outputs, together with 2
analog 8-bit inputs."
Unfortunately, the CAN ID range is restricted, and the outgoing message
is fixed, therefore it will NOT work for us.
Further answers from them:
"Sorry this is only available as a kit, the assembly time however
only be 1 hour."
"the ID can be chosen in a range from 0 - 63"
(RE output message format)
"This is fixed, the output is the address of the unit, followed by
value of the digital inputs/outpus and then the value of the analogue
Reading the instructions, it is really intended as a device to set up a
home management or other independent control system, NOT to interface
with an actual vehicle CAN bus.
It's just come to light that I could use a device like this for some
development vehicles, so I will continue to research (and appreciate any
other suggestions) this kind of hardware.

... from my quick read of the site this is simply something that taps
the bus and can accept control ... it is not a controller. I thought
were looking for something that could issue commands on the CAN bus to
