CAN USB Interfaces

  PCAN-Explorer leaflet 3.8Mbyte PCAN-Explorer

The PCAN-USB range of interfaces provide simple and cost-effective connections between PCs and CAN-networks. 

        For those using the original CAN 2.0 A or B standard............................

        The small PCAN-USB single channel converter is ideal for use with PCs laptops or notebooks.
        The PCAN-USB Pro provides up to 2 channels of CAN + 2 channels of LIN
        And the Hub gives 1 CAN, 2 RS232 + 2 USB ports

All these CAN interfaces support both 11 bit ID and  29 bit ID CAN specifications (CAN 2.0A/B) with a maximum speed of 1MBaud.  The CAN-bus connection is via a 9-pin SUB-D plug, whose pin assignments conform to the CiA recommendation.  No termination is included in the interface. The PCAN-USB is available with or without Opto-isolation. The minimum Baud rate of the PCAN-USB is 5Kbaud.

Free software
The PCAN-Basic software package is included to drive the USB modules from within 32 and 64 bit versions of  W7/8.1, Vista, CE (ARM & x86), Linux.  It provides simple interfaces to C++, C#, C++/CLR, Delphi, VB, .NET,Java and Python 2.6.  The PCAN-View 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. 

Also Available
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.

CAN pin assignments

CAN FD is a relatively new CAN standard that provides faster data rates and yet is still compatible with the original standard.  For details of how CAN 2.0A/B and CAN FD differ see our Enhanced CAN Tutorial

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

PCAN-USB  Pro FD     Dual CAN, Dual LIN all optoisolated

IPEH-004061
PCAN-USB Pro FD   2xCAN-FD 2xLIN all optoisolated

Up to four connections are available, using appropriate adapter cables (2 x CAN-FD, 2 x LIN).  Its robust aluminium casing makes the PCAN-USB Pro FD adapter suitable for mobile applications.

CAN-FD data field rate up to 12Mbits/sec.

The minimum Baud rate of the PCAN-USB FD is 25Kbaud.

Switchable for ISO and Non-ISO error handling

Time stamp resolution 1 μs

Option to Terminate CAN channels

Extended operating temperature range -40 to 85 C

Each CAN and LIN channel is separately opto-decoupled to 500V against USB and the other buses

Can measure and report bus load

For test purposes can generate errors on incoming and outgoing messages

Autonomous LIN scheduler with support for unconditional, event, and sporadic frames that can also work through multiple schedule tables

PCAN-Basic & PLIN-Basic APIs, Drivers as above, PCAN-View-FD  and PLIN-View CAN-FD and LIN Monitors included


PCAN-USB  Hub     CAN, Dual 232, Dual USB

IPEH-002004
PCAN USB Hub with CAN, 2* RS232, 2* USB ports

The PCAN-USB Hub offers the user one CAN, two RS-232, and two further USB interfaces.  Its robust aluminium casing makes the PCAN-USB Hub suitable for mobile applications.

Two High-speed USB 2.0 downstream ports

Passive (bus-powered) hub operation through the USB port of a PC enables power consumption of up to 100 mA per USB channel or Active (self-powered) hub operation through the optional external hub power supply (9 – 36 V) enables power consumption of up to 500 mA per USB channel

Guaranteed high bit rates on all channels if a USB Full-speed device is connected, thanks to a hub controller with 4 transaction translator

Supports CAN 2.0A/B up to 1 Mbaud. The minimum Baud rate of the PCAN-USB hub  is 5Kbaud.

CAN time stamp resolution approx. 42 μs

Extended operating temperature range from -40 to 85 C

PCAN-Basic APIs, Drivers as above and PCAN-View CAN Monitor included
