Kvaser USBcan II HS/LS
Kvaser's USBcan II is a dual-channel CANbus interface adapter featuring a standard USB 1.1 connection which is upward compatible with USB 2.0. This CAN-to-USB interface has an auto-transmit function for placing messages on the CANbus at set intervals.
This adapter comes in different configurations whereas the first CAN channel is for high-speed CAN, with the second CAN channel providing a low-speed CAN interface connection (part# KV-00174-9). Alternatively the second CAN channel can be a second high-speed CAN interface (part# KV-00159-6), or a single-wire CAN port (part# KV-00231-9).
- The Kvaser USBcan II provides a dual channel CAN bus interface through a standard USB interface.
- The USBcan II can be ordered with two high-speed channels, with one high-speed and one low-speed or with one-high speed and one single-wire CAN.
- Kvaser USBcan II is a flexible way of communicate with the CAN bus through a desktop PC or laptop.
- The USBcan II device is a USB 1.1 device. It also works with USB 2.0 in full-speed mode, i.e. 12 Mbit/s.
- It contains the powerful M16C microcontroller from Mitsubishi with two built-in CAN controllers.
- It handles CAN messages with 11 bit (CAN 2.0A) as well as 29 bit (CAN 2.0B) identifiers.
- Remote frames can be sent and received without restrictions.
- USBcan II can detect and generate error frames on the CAN bus.
