CANbus Adapters

SKU USB2-F-7001

USB2-F-7001 and USB2-F-7101
The USB2-F-7001 and USB2-F-7101 is a USB to CANbus adapter which incorporates the FTDI FT245R USB to FIFO interface IC device. The adapter provides a fast, simple way to connect CANbus devices to a host PC with a USB port.
Each USB2-F-7001 and USB2-F-7101 contains a small internal electronic circuit board mounted inside of a plastic case capable of withstanding industrial temperature ranges. The integrated electronics include a Microchip PIC with the ECAN controller. USB2-F-7001 and USB2-F-7101 does not require a power supply. It is powered from the USB connection. USB2-F-7001 and USB2-F-7101 requires 150mA and must be connected directly to a USB Host port, or a self-powered USB hub (i.e. with an external power supply). Bus-powered USB hubs are not supported since they cannot provide the required current.
Flexible mounting allows the USB2-F-7001 to be used in a variety of applications, from a portable adapter to accompany a laptop to permanent installations in industrial and commercial locations.
The enclosure incorporates a standard USB-B device connector for connection to an upstream host or hub port. CANbus signals are available on an industry-standard DE-9P connector conforming to the CAN-in-Automation (CiA) DS102-2 pin-out. The maximum CANbus data rate is 1Mbps. 

In addition, USB2-F-7101 features optical isolation between CANbus controller and transceiver.
