After several weeks of intense development and testing, Ford Motor Company has released a special version of our MyCANIC-FD-Lite tool that will perform a cabin heater process on certain vehicles. The tool is available now on our Ford Fleet Tools page.
EEPod has developed an extremely powerful and low-cost ECU FlexStation test/validation platform. The FlexStation has the ability to perform complex electrical and CAN/CAN-FD network communications tests. It is controlled by the new MyCANIC-FD and a 0-28VDC programmable power supply capable of sourcing or sinking up to three amps. The FlexStation gives ECU hardware, software and test engineers the ability to run complex tests at their desk that would normally cost thousands of dollars at a test facility. They can also run the tests multiple times at no extra cost!
After over a year of intense development and testing, EEPod has launched it's first fully-qualified production vehicle ECU with a major automotive manufacturer. In the process, we have increased our capabilities in EMC testing, environmental testing, security algorithms, EDI-based ordering system integration and high-volume ECU production. Give us a call to discuss your next generation vehicle ECU needs.
After an incredible 15-year run, the product that started the company is retiring since we can no longer purchase parts for the manufacture of the McS1. If you need help upgrading to our latest vehicle interface, the MyCANIC-FD, please give us a call.
EEPod is happy to announce the addition of INTECH (previously Tenfold) to our list of distributors. INTECH now handles sales, distribution and support of EEPod products in China.
After several delays due to electronic parts availability, we are finally able to offer the new MyCANIC-FD for sale. You can order it directly from the Products page.

In June, we will be closed for our company move to Apache Junction, Arizona. We will be closed from June 17th until June 29th. Our phone and fax numbers will remain the same and we will try to answer any urgent requests during the move.
Our Heavy-Duty MyCANIC design has been enhanced with a more robust DB15HD connector, metal connector end panel, heavy-duty cable restraints and an improved ESD/EMC design on the USB connector. All these changes are a big "Thank You!" to our fantastic customers that have provided valuable feedback on their use cases.
A joint effort by EEPod, Flextech and R & J Manufacturing has allowed us to produce the fastest and most cost effective high-volume module (ECU) stock reprogramming station available. This standalone unit contains a MyCANIC with your custom reprogramming software, a power supply and a custom molded ECU fixture with gold-plated, spring-loaded POGO pins for very high volume module reprogramming needs.
The new MLite-K interface is available! It features four K-Thermocouple channels (0-1000 deg. C range), four analog inputs and fifteen digital inputs and two high-speed CAN interfaces. All of these inputs can be configured to be periodically transmitted on the CAN network using user-defined IDs and at user-defined rates for simple integration into your existing vehicle network. This greatly simplifies the task of collecting sensor data that is not present in the production vehicle.
The obsolete parts in our McS1 product are now back in production, so we now have the popular McS1 Vehicle Interface back in production and available for ordering from the Products page on the website.
The new MyCANIC-HD (Heavy Duty) version is now available. This version includes upgrades to the rubber boot, cable and carrying case as well as dust covers and cable straps to make the MyCANIC more suitable for industrial environments.
Due to new credit card merchant account rules and fees, we have changed our website credit card processing to PayPal. This will keep our costs low and still allow customers to pay by credit card. NOTE: You do not need a PayPal account to buy our products.
After six years as one of the most popular J2534 vehicle interfaces, the McS1 has been discontinued due to lack of availability of several of the internal integrated circuits. The powerful MyCANIC and MLite interfaces are now available for any current and future needs.
A custom version of the MyCANIC vehicle interface is now available for Ford Fleet customers to perform the manual diesel particulate filter (DPF) regeneration routine on remote vehicles.
The new low-cost M-Lite USB-to-CAN interface is now available. This interface has two CAN channels and is capable of monitoring, simulation, logging to an internal SDCard as well as analog and digital data acquisition.
SimuCAN(R) now supports the MyCANIC to provide the most comprehensive and lowest cost vehicle network simulation environment for electronic module or vehicle development. This combination saves over $10K per development station with the highest performance available.
We have negotiated better shipping rates from UPS and we are passing the savings on with much lower shipping and handling rates for local, out-of-state and international shipments.
The much-anticipated MyCANIC(R) product is now in production! This new vehicle interface supports J2534 Pass-Thru PC applications with best-in-class performance, three separate CAN channels, a graphic user interface for standalone use, an SD/MMC card slot for data logging as well as flash calibrations, two spare analog inputs, a ruggedized enclosure and much more for just $575.00USD including the OBDII cable!
EEPod recently completed a project for the joint hybrid bus project between Kettering University and the Flint Mass Transit Authority, using a custom version of our McS1 product to translate network messages between J1939 and DeviceNet for the complex hybrid control system. You can read more about this project at: http://www.kettering.edu/visitors/storydetail.jsp?storynum=621
