KVASER is one of the market leaders when it comes to connecting CAN-bus networks to various interfaces. CAN-bus interfaces to USB, WLAN, PCI, PCIe, Mini-PCI-Express, PC-104 and Ethernet are offered. Interfaces as DIN rail modules (DIN rail versions) for the CAN-bus are also available.
A new feature of EtherCAN is the possibility to connect the CAN bus with the Ethernet LAN or the CAN bus via RF signals using the CAN AirBridge; this allows to bridge larger distances that would be difficult to achieve with cables, e.g. in cranes, trucks, pipelines, building services engineering etc. In this way, two CAN networks can also be connected with each other.
KVASER focuses on easy handling, high reliability and above all fast delivery (usually from stock). Another important criterion, e.g. for applications in medical technology, is availability over a long period of time; should a product have to be discontinued, KVASER guarantees the availability of a compatible product for the future!
The different CAN interfaces, LIN interfaces and CAN data loggers are offered with different connectors like ODBII and in different performance classes. The new CAN interfaces are of course CAN-FD-compatible.
Many KVASER CAN bus interfaces are also available as pure PCBs, so that you can integrate the CAN-bus interface directly into your application - so connectors can be omitted and costs are reduced. Alternatively brand label CAN-bus solutions can be offered for OEM customers.
Of course there are also corresponding free software tools for commissioning and diagnostics for the CAN-bus interfaces. KVASER also supplies the drivers for Windows and for most of the CAN-bus interfaces also for Linux free of charge. The KVASER website also offers very helpful training material for CAN bus.
In the data sheets on the right side a small selection of our CAN-bus interfaces is shown. Your searched product is not listed - no problem, just ask us!
The KVASER USB Leaf Light HS v2 is the most frequently purchased CAN interface. The KVASER USB Leaf Light HS v2 is a reliable and cost effective solution for connecting the CAN bus to a PC via USB interface.
The KVASER LIN and CAN interfaces are used in a wide variety of applications. In automation technology, it is a matter of connecting servo controllers or stepper motor controllers via their CAN-bus interface to the PC, IPC or a controller, usually with the CANopen protocol. But the CAN bus is also used in medical applications, in the automotive industry or in larger supply systems; here it is usually a matter of transmitting data from and to sensors, status information, actuators etc. for further processing in a processor (ECU).
The KVASER LIN interfaces are hybrid versions which can be used with LIN as well as with CAN (also in mixed operation)!
NEW: KVASER U100 CAN-bus-USB interface for harsh environmental conditions: high insulation resistance, IP67, robust housing, CAN-FD compatible - ideally suited for battery management, electric vehicles, construction machinery, agricultural machinery, automated guided vehicles, warehouse systems, etc. - Data sheet coming soon!
As a PC interface to CAN-bus networks, Copley offers single-channel or dual-channel CAN cards in PCI, PCIe or PCI-104 format and CAN-bus-USB converters (parameterization via CAN possible).
In addition, we offer a CAN I/O processor for the CANbus for PCB mounting:
Additionally to the above CAN-bus-converters, CAN-cards and CAN-memorators KVASER also offers a few very useful accessories, which are an ideal combination to the CAN-(FD)-converters for USB, WLAN, PCI, PCIe, Mini-PCI-Express, PC-104 and Ethernet:
