This is a thing called a "solid state relay" or "SSR" that switches power using solid state electronics (usually a triac or transistorized circuit). It has no relay coil and thus would not create any (or not as much) noise or spikes on the CANbus circuit.

Disclaimer: I'm no electrical engineer, but if you could find one that is the right size and type for this application I would think the CANbus would love you --
YMMV
