IXXAT USB to CAN 14 years and going stronger
1st Sept 2016
IXXAT USB to CAN Interface now in its new V2 version is going even stronger. More people use IXXAT USB to CAN Interface as the preferred method of connecting to CAN Bus than any other interface.
High Performance: Minimum latency and high data throughput
Robust and reliable – for use in rugged environments
Comprehensive driver and tool support
Easy exchange of the interface type without adaptation of the application due to standardized driver interface
Compatible with the old USB-to-CAN compact and USB-to-CAN II industrial/ automotive interfaces using
the latest drivers
OEM versions available Long-term availability and future-proof due to standard driver interface
So if you are a casual CAN bus user or a serious CAN Bus user engaged in product development, testing and R&D, USB to CAN Interfaces will be a good choice.
