PCAN-USB Adapter

SKU #: IPEH-002021

The PCAN-USB Adapter made by PEAK-System Technik connects any laptop computer or PC with a USB connector to a CAN fieldbus. This USB-CAN interface with the included CAN monitor software allows a user to look at CAN network messages, send out CAN data and record bus traffic. This product is also available with galvanic isolation of up to 500V between the CAN signals and the host-PC under part # IPEH-002022.

The CAN bus signals are routed to a 9-pin SUB-D plug and an integrated LED shows the operating state of the PCAN-USB Adapter.

The PCAN-USB package includes device drivers for Windows® 10 /8/ 7 (32/64-bit), the PCAN-Basic API, and the PCAN-View CAN monitor software. Linux drivers are also available. For customers needing more sophisticated CAN Analyzing software we have the PCAN-Explorer V6
