The USB-CANmodul1, is a small-sized and very cost-effective CAN-bus interface solution for connecting the CAN-bus to the PC via USB. CAN messages are tunneled transparently. The module supports all kind of higher-layer CAN-based protocols, such as CANopen, SDS, DeviceNet or J1939. Its fast yet low-power 32-bit CPU core with integrated message buffers ensures reliable communication even at high busload. Each received CAN message gets a precise time stamp derived from the module’s hardware timer.

The provided PC driver allows for easy plug&play installation and supports simultaneous operation of up to 64 USB-CANmodul devices on the same PC.

An extremely attractive price-performance ratio and the compact design make this CAN USB Adapter ideal suited for CAN-bus based development, service and maintenance tasks, as well as use in high-volume serial products.

The USB-CANmodul1 has been tested according to the EMC Directive 2004/108/EC.
