Apply for your SAE Manufacturer Code

The RVIA committee decided last year to get out of the business of registering Manufacturer Codes. Instead, RV-C shall use codes issued by the SAE. If your company already has an SAE code, then simply use that code. Otherwise, fill out this form and send in to the SAE.

The Manufacturer ID is used only in the NAME PGN, and is primarily a tie-breaker when implementing dynamic addressing. If you have an RVIA code already, you may continue to use that code until the SAE code is processed. For prototyping purposes you can use a random number temporarily - it is only a problem if somehow another node had exactly the same code and exactly the same values for the rest of the NAME.
