U100 CAN/CAN FD to USB interface
CAN/CAN FD to USB interface
 
 
 
 
 

The Kvaser U100 is a robust, single-channel CAN/CAN FD to USB interface with reinforced galvanic isolation that squarely addresses the needs of the evolving automotive development market. Fully compatible with J1939, CANopen, NMEA 2000® and DeviceNet, this is the first in a new range of interfaces that is also suited to rugged applications in marine, industrial, heavy duty vehicle and heavy industries.
 

 

 

With enhanced protection of its own electrical circuits, a vibration, shock and drop-proof housing and high-quality cabling, the Kvaser U100 establishes a new reference in CAN interface design. At the same time, the U100 promises to drive down cost of ownership, whilst providing additional revenue opportunities for partners.

Major Features

  • ​Supports CAN FD, up to 8 Mbit/s (with correct physical layer implementation).
  • Supports both 11-bit (CAN 2.0A) and 29-bit (CAN 2.0B active) identifiers.
  • Powered through the USB connector.
  • Supports bit rates from 10 Kbit/sec up to 1 Mbit/sec.
  • Lightweight, glass fibre reinforced polyamide housing, overmolded with TPE.
  • IP67 rated.
  • DB-9 connector (other connectors available soon).
  • Intelligent LED UI.
  • Reinforced galvanic isolation, design validated with 5000 VAC rms applied for 60 seconds.
  • Industrial grade temperature range, −40 °C to 85 °C.
  • 20000 msg/s, each timestamped with a resolution of 100 μs.
  • Support for SocketCAN.
  • Compatible with J1939, CANopen, NMEA 2000® and DeviceNet.
  • Fully compatible with applications written for other Kvaser CAN hardware with Kvaser CANlib.
