Continental, a leading global supplier of systems, components and tires to automobile and truck manufacturers, and a world leader in Electronic Logging Device technology, has expanded its VDO RoadLog installation kit portfolio with a new line of 9 Pin Green Installation Kits. This addition increases the capability of the VDO RoadLog ELD program to run a single platform in mixed fleets with plug-n-play convenience.

The VDO RoadLog 9 Pin Green Installation Kits support 2015 and newer trucks that utilize 9 Pin type II (green) Deutsch diagnostic ports, as well as pre-2015 9 Pin type I (black) Deutsch diagnostic ports. The VDO RoadLog 9 pin Green Connectors are available as a direct connection or as a Y-Cable configuration that leaves an open diagnostic port and cleanly installs into the vehicle cab.

The new installation kits are available as a 9 Pin Direct Cable (P/N 3290-90101200), 9 Pin Y with Flange Cable (P/N 3290-90101300) and 9 Pin Y with Plastic Nut Cable (P/N 3290-90101400).
