Easy connection to CAN and CAN FD networks
CAN interfaces allow PC or embedded applications to access CAN networks with a unique variety of different interface standards. You select the interface that suits your application, performance requirements, or required unit costs.
2 x CAN (High-/Low-Speed), LIN
With up to two CAN High-Speed channels, one CAN Low Speed channel, and a LIN channel, depending on the device variant, a wide variety of applications can be addressed by the USB-to-CAN V2 – in both the industrial and the automotive sectors.
High data throughput combined with low latency using up-to-date technology. On-board data pre-processing, filtering, and accurate time-stamping.
Easy to implement
A powerful driver and programming packages for Windows, Linux, and real-time operating systems as well as higher layer API for CANopen.
Different form factors for desktop, industrial PC, mobile, and even wireless connection.
Easily switch between different PC interface types – no software adaptation required!
Active and passive
Available in low-cost passive or active variants with on-board controllers for data pre-processing.
Long-term availability plus high reliability due to the highest quality standards at development and production.
- Cost-effective and extremely versatile
- Common driver interface for easy exchange of the PC interface type
- For industrial and automotive applications
- Galvanic isolation optional
The USB-to-CAN V2 is available in different variants. In the USB-to-CAN V2 compact variant, the CAN connection is implemented as a D-SUB 9 plug or alternatively as an RJ45 connector. For devices with two CAN interfaces, these are implemented as RJ45 connectors. Adapter cables to sub-D9 plugs are included with the devices.
The IXXAT USB-to-CAN V2 embedded is designed without housing, with or without a slot board, and adapted USB cable for installation into a computer. Additional options include galvanically isolated CAN interfaces, bulk variants, and support for ISO 11898-3 low-speed CAN and LIN.
LIN (Automotive variant)
LIN communications are supported in either LIN master or LIN slave mode. As LIN slave, the interface responds automatically to master requests it receives. The response data is updated through the PC API using a buffer. In master mode, the master calls are processed by the PC application. Incoming LIN messages are forwarded to the application with a timestamp, master request, response, and status information.
By using powerful hardware and connecting over USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (480 MBit/sec), the USB-to-CAN V2 interfaces achieve very high data throughput with minimum latency and low power consumption. This allows them to provide the reliable, loss-free transmission and receipt of messages in CAN networks at high transmission rates and busload. The messages are also time-stamped and can be filtered and buffered directly in the USB-to-CAN V2.
Due to its extremely interesting price and compact size, the USB-to-CAN V2 interface is ideal for use in series products and in combination with the canAnalyser for development, service, and maintenance tasks.
Its newly developed, rugged housing permits easy customer-specific adaptation (custom design/brand labeling).
