Elm is Temporarily Closed

We have decided to close our offices during the Covid-19 pandemic. This will allow our staff to spend more time with their families while limiting their exposure to others. If all goes well, we hope to return to normal by April 1, 2020.

The shopping cart on our web site will remain disabled during this time, but you are still able to view and download data sheets, application notes, etc.

Thank you for your understanding.

Coming soon – ELM327 v2.3

The new ELM327 v2.3 is almost ready. There are no major changes, but we do offer some new features that our users have requested. Some of the changes include:

  • improvements for better speed and error detection
  • a new AT FT command for filtering all received data by transmitter address
  • a new Is Active command to allow querying whether an attempt to connect was successful
  • new Flow Control modes to enable sends after every received message (not just after First Frames)
  • a new Programmable Parameter for adjusting the minimum KWP/ISO time before a sync byte is accepted

We expect to have the new IC ready for your testing in the next few weeks.

Christmas Shutdown

It’s that time of year again. We take a break from filling orders and answering emails, and spend some time with our families. We do hope that you are able to spend some time with yours.

If you wish to place an order, the system will gladly accept your money. We will not be back to begin filling the orders until January 6. As always, we will send you an email when your order does ship.

Best Wishes for 2020!

It’s Here! The new ELM329L v2.2

As promised, the ELM329L has now been updated to version 2.2. The new integrated circuit now:

  • handles response pending (7F xx 78) replies
  • shows CAN frequency in response to AT CS requests
  • allows the response timeout range to be expanded 5x
  • is able to define a CAN Extended Receive address
  • has new W0 and W1 commands for more control of periodic (wakeup) messages
  • has an AT FB command to allow filler byte redefinition on the fly

In addition, there have been several other adjustments to improve the experience. Please note that we have also changed the function of pin 11 to no longer perform a dual function, and we have removed the AT WM command.

We’ve been a little slow getting the ‘L’ version of our latest ELM329 CAN Interpreter out, but it will be coming soon. As with the ELM329 v2.2, the new ELM329L will:

  • handle response pending (7F xx 78) replies
  • have a modified AT CS command that displays the CAN frequency
  • allow the response timeout range to be expanded 5x
  • have the ability to define a CAN Extended Receive address
  • have new W0 and W1 commands for more control of periodic (wakeup) messages
  • have an AT FB command to allow filler byte redefinition on the fly

The new integrated circuit should be fully tested and ready in the next few weeks.

Mail Disruptions

Canada Post has begun a series of rotating walkouts here in Canada. This is affecting the mail delivery in various locations, and may well affect the delivery of your order.

While we do everything that we can to get your order to the Post Office in a timely fashion, we can not control what happens to it after it is handed over. When we email to say that your order is on the way then it certainly is, but it may be travelling a little slower than normal.

Attention American Customers !

Apparently there have been significant delays at the border. It seems that Canada Post hands off our packages to the US Customs and Border Protections group, which in turn gives them to the USPS. Processing times through Customs and Border Protections has been longer lately:

June 2018 Canada Post Alert

We are sorry to say that there really is nothing that we can do about these delays.
