PCAN-USB X6 Adapter

IPEH-004062 , IPEH-004063 , IPEH-004064
The new 6-channel CAN FD adapter from PEAK-System, PCAN-USB X6, enables the connection of CAN FD and CAN networks to a computer via a single USB interface. Delivered in a robust aluminum housing and available with either SUB-D9 style or M12 (part number IPEH-004063) connectors for each CAN channel this multi-channel CAN adapter is suitable for use in harsh environments.

The new 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.

The delivery contents includes the free PCAN-View message monitoring app along with the PCAN-Basic API assisting users with fast and easy development of their own sophisticated CAN applications.
