Kvaser five channel CAN to USB interface and datalogger
By Alyssa Dalton
Mar. 18, 2015 – Kvaser has introduced a five channel high-speed CAN to USB interface and datalogger that allows users to monitor and log data from multiple CAN channels using only one device. The Kvaser Memorator Pro 5xHS not only time synchronizes the data transmitted and received across all five buses, but also automatically synchronizes with other Kvaser interfaces connected to the same PC, resulting in simpler, more accurate multichannel data capture, says the company. The device has a 26 pin HD DSUB that connects to a splitter with five 9 pin DSUBs, and one USB connector that links to any USB port on a host computer. Only one USB port needs to be allocated when monitoring multiple CAN buses, which helps reduce the need for an external hub in many applications. It is suitable for use in a range of industries, such as machine control, automotive development, and industrial network connectivity.
