CAN Interface with USB Access for OEM Applications

January 16, 2012 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Softing is presenting its product “CANpro USB embedded” at the exhibition embedded world 2012. This interface for accessing CAN and CANopen networks uses USB High Speed and provides high data throughput and very short reaction times.

The CANpro USB embedded is specifically designed for embedded applications and therefore does not require a housing. The product is connected to the PC-internal USB port and mounted directly in the computer housing via the DSUB connector. This provides a space-saving and flexible solution enabling the one-stop delivery of the complete OEM application together with the PC and the CAN interface.

Softing Industrial Automation is a world-leading provider of industrial communication products and technologies used with devices, controls, and systems in manufacturing and process automation applications. The company's product range is tailored to the requirements of system integrators, device vendors, machine and equipment manufacturers, and end users.
