The CAN dongle isCAN USB with the USB interface grants a fast access to any CAN/CANopen based network. Mobile set-up as well as monitoring are supported. Desktop PCs and notebook devices without installed CAN adapter can be taken into the field and connected with the CAN network within seconds. It is connected to the CAN bus with a 9 pin D-Sub connector according to the CiA specification DS-102. The integrated optocoupler provide galvanic isolation of the CAN network. The device is bus powered, thus not depending on external power supplies, LEDs indicate the actual working condition of the interface and transmission errors.
The isCAN USB interface supports the CAN specification 2.0A (11 bit ID) and 2.0B (29 bit ID). It supports transmission rates of up to 1 MBit/s. The driver software contains a standardized RP1210 driver, that facilitates the use of the J1939 protocol.
With the included driver DLL user-specific applications can be integrated easily. For application developers there are header files and documentation available as well as examples in C/C++, C# and VB.Net. Also an integration into Labview is supported by a Labview driver package. Optionally an OPC server software (isCAN Server) is available.
CAN FD data rate up to 12Mbaud
CAN 2.0 A/B data rate up to 1Mbaud. The minimum Baud rate of the PCAN-USB FD is 5Kbaud.
Switchable for ISO and Non-ISO error handling
Time stamp resolution 1 μs
Option to Terminate CAN channel
Extended operating temperature range -40 to 85 °C
Can measure and report bus load
For test purposes can generate errors on incoming and outgoing messages
The PCAN-Basic-FD software package is included to drive the USB modules from within 32 and 64 bit versions of W8.1, 7, Vista and Linux. It provides simple interfaces to C++, C#, C++/CLR, Delphi, VB, .NET,Java and Python 2.6. The PCAN-View-FD package is a useful Windows diagnostic program that displays and logs all messages on the bus as well as allowing manual creation of test messages and error diagnostics.
Are a set of drives for time critical multi-threaded applications and the PCAN- Explorer package that provides advanced CAN bus diagnostics, reporting and control capabilities. Explorer supports J1939 and there is a PCAN-FMS package to operate with that standard.
