Kvaser USBcan II HS/SWC

Kvaser's USBcan II HS/SWC 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
single-wire CAN port (part# KV-00231-9). Alternatively the second CAN channel can be a low-speed CAN interface (part# KV-00174-9), or a second high-speed connection (part# KV-00159-6).
  • 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.
