A configuration-free wireless CAN bridge that achieves predictable latency, without sacrificing stability or range.

Comprising a preconfigured pair of plug-and-play units to rapidly exchange raw CAN data, the Kvaser Air Bridge Light HS is designed for environments or situations that make wired connection unsuitable or challenging e.g. between two moving parts that are connected by CAN.

There are two versions: Kvaser Air Bridge Light HS (FCC) (01008-6) complies with US certification, while Kvaser Air Bridge Light HS (00808-3) is approved for the European Union. Both share the same functionality but have different radio transmission schemes due to regulatory differences.
