PCAN-USB Pro FD Adapter

SKU #: IPEH-004061

We are currently out of stock on the PCAN-USB Pro FD Adapters. Please email or contact us for lead times and availability.

The new CAN FD Pro from PEAK-System, PCAN-USB Pro FD adapter enables the connection of CAN FD and LIN networks to a computer via USB. Two field busses can be connected at the same time, up to four with appropriate adapter cables (2 x CAN FD, 2 x LIN). Each CAN FD channel is separately isolated against USB and LIN with a maximum of 500 Volts. Its robust aluminum casing makes the PCAN-USB Pro FD adapter suitable for mobile applications.

The recently released CAN FD standard (CAN with Flexible Data Rate) is primarily characterized by higher bandwidth for data transfer. Under CAN FD a maximum of 64 data bytes per CAN FD frame (instead of 8 so far) can be transmitted with bit rates up to 12 Mbit/s. CAN FD is downward-compatible to the CAN 2.0 A/B standard, thus CAN FD nodes can be used in existing CAN networks. However, in this case the CAN FD extensions are not applicable.

Note: This product replaces the PCAN-USB Pro Adapter, part# IPEH-002061 which has been discontinued end of 2014.

  • Transmitting and receiving of CAN FD and LIN messages using 2 D-Sub connections (both with pin assignment for the CAN FD and LIN bus)
  • Adapter for High-speed USB 2.0 (compatible to USB 1.1 and USB 3.0)
  • Time stamp resolution 1 μs
  • 5-Volt supply at the D-Sub connector can be activated through a solder jumper, e.g. for external bus converter
  • Voltage supply via USB
