The new CAN-USB-COM converter provides bi-directional communication between a USB “COM Port” Serial interface and a CAN 2.0A/B (ISO 11898) Network. This new USB CAN interface is completely backward compatible with our prior CAN-USB-LIGHT version, while adding improved performance and more features.

The new USB CAN interface offers the following features:

  • Backwards Compatibility with the previous version (CAN-USB-LIGHT)
  • 25 times faster with new ARM Cortex-M3 32-bit microcontroller
  • Easy setup using “Configuration Push Button”
  • Virtual Serial Baud Rates up to 1 Mbps
  • CAN Messages can now be formatted in either ASCII or binary
  • Help menu is integrated for set-up/configuration commands.
  • Automatic set-up of “bit-time” and “slew rate” (may be adjusted through configuration commands).

With a wide variety of settings and configuration parameters this USB CAN Interface creates a powerful solution for interfacing between a Virtual USB COM Port and Controller Area Network (CAN). When plugged into a USB port, the CAN-USB-COM will enumerate as a serial COM Port. This means you can use it with any COM Port based software, including HyperTerminal or TeraTerm. Drivers are standard in Windows XP and later, and are available for MAC and Linux.

NOTE: The CAN USB COM is NOT compatible with Peak System software.

  • Backwards Compatibility with the previous version (CAN-USB-LIGHT)
  • Simple configuration using HyperTerminal or TeraTerm
  • 1000V isolation (Optional)
  • 10 message transmit buffer, 2 message receive buffer
  • LEDs for Serial TX and RX, CAN TX and RX
  • Test Features: can be used to generate CAN Square wave to measure propagation delay and evaluate bus termination.
  • Powered from USB Port
  • Uses FTDI USB to Serial Chip
