More powerful and versatile a WLAN solution than Kvaser's original BlackBird, Kvaser BlackBird V2 incorporates a new radio chip that gives it up to 75% better range. In addition, more on-board memory overcomes potential interruptions to the wireless connection due to the protocol itself or disturbance. The BlackBird V2's ability to leverage existing wireless infrastructure makes it ideal for replacing cumbersome cable, accessing hard-to-reach CAN networks, or for monitoring a CANbus while in motion. Based on radio chip that is Wi-Fi certified and meets CE and FCC standards, it works in both Ad Hoc and Infrastructure mode. The Blackbird V2's API is device independent and so can be used on a tablet or smartphone, as well as PC.
