The BCI-8 is a truly universal CAN interface. It supports all European car makes and models with CAN Highspeed and CAN Lowspeed. This means that only one software variant is required per signal configuration and you only ever need to keep one type in stock!

Connecting a BCI is quick and easy. Once connected to a constant power supply, a ground and two CAN wires, the BCI will automatically determine the car make and type. The BCI needs no more than 20 seconds to recognize the car, after which it will control the relevant outputs.

And with the help of the free in-car instruction that comes with every BCI, locating the CAN connections in the car is easy too.

During the development of the BCI the product quality was of paramount importance. The product quality of the BCI is at the same high level as, for example, the BCI CAN interface – the predecessor to the BCI that was successfully deployed worldwide for over 10 years. This means that the BCI also complies with the strict approval requirements at European level.
