Powerful CAN USB Interface for PC

The CAN-USB/2 module is an intelligent CAN interface with an ARM 7 microcontroller for the local management of CAN data. The module supports the USB 2.0 High Speed interface with data rates of 480 Mbit/s.

CAN Interface

The ISO 11898-compliant CAN interface allows a data transfer rate of a maximum of 1 Mbit/s. The CAN interface is electrically isolated from other potentials by means of a digital isolator and a DC/DC converter.

Software Support

Windows und Linux (NTCAN-API)
Software drivers for Windows® 7/8/10 (32/64 bit) are included in delivery. Linux® kernel ≥ 2.6 is supported via Linux CAN (SocketCAN) and NTCAN wrapper library. Drivers for other operating systems are available on request.

The firmware can be updated from the PC. Updates are available on the esd website.
Libraries for the higher layer protocols CANopen and J1939 are available.

Additional free-of-charge esd CAN tools for Windows offer efficient setup and analysis of CAN applications and networks.

Customization on Request

Customized options are available for customized series production in reasonable quantities. Please contact our sales team for detailed information.
