It used to be difficult to read data safe and reliable from a vehicle data network. After finding the right CANbus wires you had to find a good place to connect, strip the wires and solder or crimp to make a physical connection to the CANbus.

In response to this, we introduced the CANcliQ. The CANcliQ reads vehicle signals without making a wire to wire connection. This technology guarantees that no intrusive signals are sent to the vehicle CANbus. This eliminates liability matters, warranty issues or possible wrong connections. Since its introduction in 2009 CANcliQ has proven itself as a reliable and safe solution.

How does it work

  • Find the proper CANbus wires
  • CANcliQ is placed over the CANbus wires
  • Close permanently with one click
  • Connects to the CANdiode port of Squarell interface
  • Reads through wire isolation
CANcliq - How it works


  • No direct CANbus connection
  • One cable fits all vehicles
  • 100% non-intrusive technology
  • Safe and reliable reading of CANbus data
  • No soldering, wire cutting or crimping
  • No physical wire-to-wire connections
  • Isolation of vehicle wires stays intact
