CLS Connect Kit
CAN Bus Accessory Control Unit.
The issue with connecting electrical accessories to modern bikes with CAN Bus technology is well know. If you bypass the CAN Bus by connecting directly to the battery, you will have a reliable current source however should you forget to turn the accessory off, you might wind up with a dead battery.
The CLS Connect is wired directly to the battery and your electric accessory or supplemental accessory outlet connects to it. The CLS Connect is essentially a switch that can detect when the engine is running by monitoring the voltage. When you stop the engine, the CLS Connect interrupts the power to the accessory and when you start again, power to the accessory is restored. The control unit is completely waterproof and it can be placed in any orientation, wherever you find a good spot. It's also possible to program the length of time that the circuit remains hot after the engine has been switched off. This feature is handy for navigation devices or if you would like your auxiliary lights to stay on for a minute of so while you get to where you need to be on a dark night.
The Control unit measures approximately 55 x 35 x 17mm (2-1/4 x 1-1/2 x 5/8 inches)
Made in Germany
- For any bike with a CAN Bus system
Wunderlich America Comment: Certain types of modern batteries such as lithium Ion lack the internal resistance of conventional batteries to excite the switching mechanism. There is an extra connection to be made to a switched hot in this case and the device then works flawlessly with all functionality.
Wunderlich America Comment: This was an unfortunate packaging issue. The installation instructions are normally included and are available for download on our web site.
