Hummingbird Electronics' CAN / J1939 to USB Converter is a small, cost effective CAN-bus interface solution for connecting a vehicles CAN-bus to a PC via USB. The device makes it easy to read the available CAN / J1939 messages on any vehicle.
Once CAN messages are confirmed to be available, Hummingbird Electronics can produce CAN interface modules that can take action based on vehicle parameters.
CAN / J1939 messages are converted to text and are transmitted over USB to a PC. The USB device registers on a PC as a standard serial port and so no driver software is required. The user can use their favourite terminal program, such as Hyperterm or Realterm, to view or save the data.
The module supports all kinds of higher layer CAN-based protocols, such as CANopen, SDS, DeviceNet or J1939. The module can be configured by the user for 250kbps or 500kbps CAN-bus networks.
An extremely attractive price performance ratio and the compact design make this CAN USB Adapter ideal suited for CAN-bus based development, service and maintenance tasks, as well as use in high-volume serial products.
As standard, the module is in listen only mode, ensuring no interference with the CAN bus. If you would like to be able to transmit messages to the CAN / J1939 network, please contact Hummingbird Electronics and we can supply a bi-directional unit.
