Sevcon Gen4 controller connection to OpenPlotter
Hello all!

I'm using OpenPlotter v1 on a RPi 3B+, and got a MoitessierHat on in too, onboard  our Sea Eagle 31.

We're about to install a Sevcon gen-4 controller for a 10kw electric motor instead of the old diesel engine. The controller comes with a CAN-translator with a serial cable to it (and their own Serial Utilities can be used with it). With a dedicated app engine RPM and battery bank voltage can be displayed.

OBDII is said be the protocol, at least for the bluetooth communication with the CAN. Does anyone know if OBDII can be translated to SignalK and there used with for instance KIP for displaying engine RPM, voltage etc?

Or should I try to go through the CAN-interface of the controller (CANopen profiles DS301, DS401 and DSP402 are supportet) to get the data? Any ideas how?

Many thanks
Andreas Vikholm
