Product Information

Product Description

Authorized North America Distributor Stamp

The Best CAN bus USB adapters on the market; Guaranteed! From the CAN Experts! The isolated version has up to 500 Volts of galvanic isolation between the PC and the CAN side.

The PCAN-USB allows

  • monitoring a CAN network,
  • writing a CAN program, and
  • communicating with industrial, medical, automotive or other CAN based devices.

No power supply needed. This adapter connects a CAN bus to the USB port of a PC or laptop, which supplies the power to the adapter.

A 5-Volt supply to the CAN connection can be connected through a solder jumper, e.g., to power a simple PEAK-System accessory such as a PCAN-Optoadapter.

For advanced software monitoring (PCAN-Explorer 6), development interfaces and applications programs, check out the CAN software options.
