Install - Configurable SOC display

Installation, wiring and configuration instructions for the 6DS0000E display.

These are the installation and configuration instructions for the configurable Elithion SOC display, 6DS0000E.

Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to teach all of our clients proper assembly procedures, which are essential for a succesful project. What we can do is to pass along this info to you:

back to topMechanical

This SOC display is designed to fit in a 2 inch (5 cm) hole in a panel.

A U-shaped bracket presses against the panel and holds the display in place.

Connector anchor

The SOC display is connected to the CAN bus and a 12 V power source through a 4-conductor cable.

Connection diagram
CAN display connections.
# Color Name Function Connect to
1 Black Gnd Common Supply negative (chassis)
2 White CANL CAN Low CAN bus
3 Green CANH CAN High CAN bus
4 Red V+ Power in Supply positive, 12 V (6~24 V)

In plug-in vehicles, power the display from the V+ output of the BMS Master (which is powered whether the ignition is on or the vehicle is plugged into the wall).

CAN termination anchor

The CAN bus requires 2 each 120 Ohm resistors, one at each end of the bus.

The BMS Master includes a 120 Ohm resistor (which can optionally be disconnected).

The SOC display also includes a CAN termination resistor, which may be disconnected by cutting the small wire loop on the back of the case.

If the BMS Master and the SOC display are the only other device on the CAN bus, you need to enable the CAN termination resistors on the BMS Master and leave the loop on the Display in place.

If there are additional devices on the CAN bus, then terminators must be placed at the 2 ends of the bus. If the display is not at one end of the bus, disconnect its termination resistor by cutting the loop.

back to topOperation

At power up, the display indicates the configured CAN speed by lighting a single LED for less than 1 second:

  • Red: 1 Mbps
  • Amber: 500 kbps
  • Yellow: 250 kbps
  • Green: 125 kbps

Afterward, it turns on all the LEDs.

As soon as it receives a CAN message, the LEDs will switch to normal operation.

If there are no messages, after about 10 seconds the display will reset itself, and start again by displaying the CAN speed.

back to topCAN speed configuration

The CAN speed may be reconfigured in the field in one of 2 ways:

To reconfigure with a jumper:

  1. Remove power
  2. Open the case to access the PCB assembly
  3. Identify the programming port: 5 holes in a row (4 round pads and one square pad which is pin 1)
  4. Identify locations 3 and 4 (on the components side, marked 'G' and '2')
  5. Short together locations 3 and 4 with a wire, a paper clip, or tweezers
  6. Turn on the power
  7. Note that the CAN speed went up by one step, as indicated by one of the LEDs (e.g.: if it was 125 kbps, now it's 250 kbps)
  8. Repeat until the desired CAN speed is achieved
