PC CAN Interfaces

PC CAN USB FD

The CAN-FD adapter PCAN-USB FD allows connection to CAN-FD and CAN networks via the USB port of a computer. A galvanic isolation up to a maximum of 500 volts decouples the PC from the CAN bus. Thanks to the simple application and its compact plastic housing, the adapter is ideally suited for mobile use.
