Compact CAN interface with one CAN and RS232 interface.
Housing and interfaces
It is housed in a compact plastic case and offers a CAN channel and a RS232 channel. CAN is of CiA standard SubD9 design. Its USB 2.0 interface enables the CANfox 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. Consequently, CANfox offers all necessary interfaces located in a tiny case for mobile or stationary use.
More performance, less costs
It is a powerful device within the Sontheim interface group with its 32 Bit microcontroller for data-handling. However, the CANfox is meant to be a flexible and very inexpensive tool. Thus, you can configure the baudrate via software and adapt it to your processes. A single unit is available for less than 120,- € (EUR) so please don‘t hesitate to contact us for an offer.
Comprehensive software support
Of course, CANfox is supported by all Sontheim software like CANexplorer 4 for CAN bus diagnostics
or MDT for vehicle applications like diagnostics or End-of-Line processes. Additionally, with purchasing an interface you get the programming interface (API) for integrating the CANfox into your own software. There is also a CODESYS support implemented in order to use the device for PLC and motion control tasks. Use it as a programming gateway for CODESYS-based PLCs or for downloading programms directly out of a CODESYS programming environment.
