CANUSB-V2 - Universal USB to CAN Interface Adaptor

 
 
 

CANUSB-V2 is a very small dongle that plugs into any PC USB Port and gives an instant CAN connectivity. This means it can be treated by software as a standard COM Port (serial RS232 port) which eliminates the need for any extra drivers or by installing a direct driver DLL for faster communications and higher CAN bus loads. Sending and receiving can be done in standard ASCII format.

Main Features
  • CANUSB module plugs directly into a standard USB port ('A' plug type)
  • Provides a standard DB9 male output to CAN systems according to CiA (CAN in Automation) DS102-1 recommendations.
  • Up to 1Mbps CAN Bitrate
  • Supports CAN2.0A (11 Bit IDs) und CAN2.0B (29 Bit IDs)
  • Time Stamp Option (ms) for incoming frames
  • Self powered from USB.
  • Consumes max 100mA, but normally not more than 60mA (this depends on BUS load and eventual CAN cable errors etc.).
  • Use your own RS232 LIB/drivers (in e.g. Visual Basic, Deplhi, C++ etc.) together with the free Virtual COM port driver or use the free Direct driver DLL.
  • Works on Windows and Linux platforms.
  • Easy to migrate from CAN232 to CANUSB with some small software changes.
  • Free Windows Threaded CANUSB API DLL or use the ActiveX controller, write applications in a snap.
  • Firmware updates via USB

Specifications

  • Can handle up to 1Mbit/s CAN bitrate
  • USB 2.0 Full Speed
  • Philips SJA1000 CAN Controller running at 16Mhz
  • Philips 82C251 CAN Tranceiver (Fully Compatible with ISO 11898-24V)
  • Compliant to CAN 2.0A (11bit ID's) and CAN 2.0B (29bit ID's)
  • Supports RTR frames
  • 32 CAN frames deep FIFO buffer for incomming frames in CANUSB firmware
  • Time Stamp option in mS for incomming frames
  • CANbus connection according to CiA DS102-1 standard
  • Power supplied via USB
  • Free Interface DLL and ActiveX controller or low level Ascii Commands via USB driver
  • Free Linux driver availible
  • Green LED for CAN activity
  • Red LED for CAN error activity
  • Firmware updatable via USB
  • CE Approved
  • RoHS & WEEE Compliant

Sample Programs and Drivers

  • Lawicel have developed their own DLL and ActiveX control which in turn "talk" with the D2XX DLL from FTDI.
  • This threaded DLL & ActiveX control includes Open, Close, Read, Write & Status functions and will make it quick and easy for customers to make their own applications without understanding how to parse commands and getting into how the D2XX driver works.
  • DLL & ActiveX control is availible now.
  • Tests with VB6 using this DLL shows that the CANUSB is really fast and can receive 5000+ frames per second without loosing any frames.

Product Kit Shot

CANUSB-V2 Internal View

Looking inside the CANUSB-V2, you find a dense 4-layer printed circuit boards with parts on both sides of the PCB. The CANUSB-V2 is firmware upgradable through the USB interface, so customers easily can update firware when we release a new improved software or new functions in the software. CANUSB-V2 is also CE ceritified and RoHS compliant, which many other similar products are not.

CAN Pin assignment

  • The CANUSB-V2 pin assignment according to CiA recommendations DS102-1.
  • The CANUSB-V2 is powered from USB port, so no need to connect external power on pin 9.
  • Uses only CAN_L (pin2), CAN_H (Pin7) and CAN_GND (pin3).

Dimensions

  • Length: 55mm, Width: 36mm, Height: 16mm.
  • Blue Transparent Case, 1 meter shielded USB cable.

Upgrade to 'CAN Monitor Pro' (optional upgrade)

CANMON/PRO is a software utility which supports sending / receiving of CAN message frames using a simple graphical GUI. The utility only works in conjunction with the Lawicel CANUSB adaptor.

This is a chargeable upgrade to the Lawicel CANUSB adaptor - see 'Product Upgrades' section.

CANUSB - Demo C# Application

  • CANUSB DLL sample using the D2XX driver.
  • It is included in the CANUSB DLL driver package

CANUSB-V2 - Demo Delphi Application

  • CANUSB DLL sample using the D2XX driver - see CANUSB DLL driver package.
  • See CANUSB website for a ready to use Software using CANUSB DLL (no source code). CANUSB VCP Samples.
  • See www.can232.com for Delphi samples, these work nice with VCP drivers (VCP is not recommended for higher speed, this is only for compability with CAN232 applications).
