Robust, single-channel CAN/CAN FD to USB interface with reinforced galvanic isolation.

The Kvaser U100 is a robust, galvanically reinforced (Tested according to EN 60335-1:2012 paragraph 13 with 5000 VAC rms applied for 60 seconds.) single-channel CAN/CAN FD to USB interface. Signal and power isolated, the Kvaser U100 offers enhanced electrical protection, vibration, shock and drop-proof housing and high-quality cabling that establishes a new reference in CAN interface design.

With an intelligent LED that displays bus loads and error frames, an industry-leading IP67 rating and an innovative connector system, the U100 has numerous stand-out features. Fully compatible with J1939, CANopen, NMEA 2000® and DeviceNet, this suits rugged and higher voltage applications in marine, industrial, construction, heavy-duty, agriculture, and automotive, including electric vehicle markets. This device has a Type-A USB connector; a Type-C USB connector is also available.
