Short description:

Powerful CAN interface with USB for transmitting CAN data and monitoring entire networks.

The device has a fairly rugged housing built of aluminum. Its compact design and resistivity against shock make it very popular in many areas of the  automation and automotive industry.

CAN interfaces
There are either 1 or 2 galvanically isolated CAN channels available which comply with ISO 11898 -2. The transfer rate ranges up to 1 Mbit at 90% bus load.

Flexible data processing
Its USB 2.0 interface enables the CANUSB to be used at any laptop, embedded PC or desktop PC. Once you have installed the driver you will benefit from ‚HOT PLUG & PLAY‘ which is a connection of device to PC without restart.

Microcontroller and firmware update
The Motorola STAR12 and the Philips PDIUSBD12 guarantee a quick data processing.

Both CAN 2.0 A and CAN 2.0 B are supported. CANUSB is suited for numerous operating systems like  Windows XP, XP embedded, Vista and 7. All firmware updates can be loaded via USB.

Error frame detection
This feature allows surveillance and monitoring of a CAN network. The CANUSB possesses an own logic for detecting error frames and counting them up in a specific internal memory area. That is used for finding intermittent errors like falsified messages of a CAN participant.

Level measurement
This feature is designed for an analogue measurement of CAN levels. It is used for doing diagnostics at vehicles of all kinds or machines. Erratic level indicate for example short circuits. They are often  responsible for data loss.

Programming interface
The CANapi provides all functions for programming own applications. It supports all Sontheim interfaces and several third-party devices which is why we enclose our SiECA132 MT-CANapi with 4 simultaneous handles at every interface dongle.
