The CAN-USB/2 module is an intelligent CAN-interface with a 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.
The ISO 11898-compliant CAN-interface allows a data-transfer rate of a maximum of 1 Mbit/s. The bit rate, like many other features of the CAN-interfaces, can be set by software.
The CAN-interface is electrically isolated from other potentials by means of a digital isolator and a DC/DC-converter.
Software drivers are available for Windows 2K/XP, Windows XP x64 and Windows CE. Drivers for other operating systems are available on request. The firmware can be updated from the PC.
A CANopen software package is available for Windows 2K/XP and Windows XP x 64 systems.
