There are no stupid questions!

The CiA office provides a CAN hotline service for technical, marketing, and product related questions. You can send your question by email (service(at)can-cia.org) or fax (+49-911-928819-79) or you can call us (+49-911-928819-0). Generally, we will answer your request within 24 hours, except on weekends or German holidays. If we need more time to respond to your inquiry, we will inform you.

There are no stupid questions, just stupid answers. CiA engineers have a good technical background and also some detailed knowledge on CAN technology. If we can't answer your question, perhaps we know someone who can. In the rare case that no answer is available, we will start to investigate jointly with our members to find a solution.
