IXXAT Automation: IXXAT USB-to-CAN V2 Interface

Dec. 2, 2013
The new IXXAT USB-to-CAN V2 interface connects over USB 2.0 at 480 Mbps, enabling very high data throughput with minimum latency and lower power consumption.
The new IXXAT USB-to-CAN V2 interface connects over USB 2.0 at 480 MBit/sec, enabling very high data throughput with minimum latency and lower power consumption. This makes it suitable for very demanding applications at maximum bus load and CAN bit rates up to 1 Mbit/second, such as simulation applications.The virtues of the existing USB-to-CAN are still there: outstanding robustness for long-term use in harsh environments, very easy operation at a cost-effective price.
Existing versions of the proven IXXAT VCI and IXXAT ECI drivers support the new USB-to-CAN V2, permitting drop-in use in existing applications without changes to software – even when changing between different interface types. The IXXAT APIs for CANopen and SAE J1939 also support the new USB-to-CAN V2 device family.
The USB-to-CAN V2 is available in different variants with either one or two CAN interfaces based on ISO 11898-2. In the USB-to-CAN V2 compact, the CAN connection is implemented as a sub-D9 plug or alternatively as an RJ45 connector. The versions that carry two CAN interfaces are connected via RJ45 connectors. Adapter cables to sub-D9 plugs are included with the devices. Additional options include galvanically isolated CAN interfaces, bulk variants, and support for ISO 11898-3 low-speed CAN and LIN.
The new housing design supports creation of customer-specific variants branded with the customer logo. Another newly introduced variant is the IXXAT USB-to-CAN V2 for embedded use, which is designed without housing but with a slot board and adapted USB cable for installation into a computer.
