Kvaser U100-C

The latest laptops and PCs come with USB-C slots only, so the Kvaser U100-C (01340-7) has been added to Kvaser’s U100 range of robust, single-channel CAN/CAN FD to USB interfaces. This interface is based on the standard Kvaser U100 with DB-9 connector, but replaces the standard USB type “A” connector with the smaller USB-C format. As with other devices in the range, this is powered via the USB bus.

Robust, galvanically-reinforced and signal and power isolated, the Kvaser U100 range offers enhanced electrical protection, a vibration, shock and drop-proof housing and high-quality cabling that establishes a new reference in CAN interface design.

The Kvaser U100 is already available with standard USB type “A” connectors and 9-pin D-SUB, J1939-13 Type II or OBD-II CAN connectors, or as a Precision version, the Kvaser U100P, with a standard USB type “A” connector to a 9-pin D-SUB.
