PCAN-Explorer V5 Portable License Software


CAN Network Monitoring Software

PEAK's popular PCAN-Explorer V5 software is now also available as a portable license software. With this type of license the customer receives a USB copy protection dongle for each purchased license in addition to the installation CD. The benefit is that PCAN-Explorer 5 can be installed on several computers. However, in order to unlock and use the software, you must plug the copy protection dongle into a free USB port.

PCAN-Explorer V5 is a universal yet sophisticated tool for monitoring data traffic on a CAN network. Specific individual messages can be identified as so-called symbols in order to easily and clearly identify them within the stream of CAN frames. The integrated VBScript support allows the creation of macros which in turn helps the user with automating complex tasks. An integrated data logger allows for convenient recording, analyzing, and storage of the data traffic from the CANbus.

The software works with all PEAK PCAN interface products including the popular PCAN-USB Adapter. There are four optional function upgrade add-ins available including CANdb, Plotter, Instruments Panel and J1939.
