Kvaser Air Bridge Light HS (FCC)

KV-01008-6

The Air Bridge Light HS (FCC) from Kvaser is a wireless CAN bridge to connect two CAN networks. It is designed for situations where wired connections are challenging or unsuitable. The Air Bridge Light is comprised of a pair of pre-configured devices with rugged housing and integrated antennas, and allows for the exchange of raw CAN data. The pair attain predictable latency without sacrificing range or stability.

The Kvaser Air Bridge Light comes in two variants: (01008-6) Kvaser Air Bridge Light HS (FCC) is optimized for the US, while (00808-3) Kvaser Air Bridge Light HS is approved for the European Union. Both models share the same functionality but have different radio transmission schemes due to regulatory differences.
