Kvaser Memorator HS/LS is a dual channel, intermediate performance, CAN bus interface and standalone Datalogger. Standalone mode logs data to an expandable SD card slot; interface mode connects to the PC with USB1.1. One CAN channel is for High-Speed CAN, while the second CAN channel is for Low-Speed CAN (EAN# 00170-1).
Kvaser Memorator makes it possible for you to log data from a CAN bus to a standard SD or MMC disk. Kvaser Memorator provides a dual channel CAN bus interface with a standard USB interface and is delivered with a SD disk. Support for High-Speed, Low-Speed and Single-Wire CAN through different product versions.
Kvaser Memorator has a USB connection and can be used as a powerful CAN to USB interface as well as a standalone CAN data logger - two products in one! As a data logger, it is for example perfect as a flight recorder due its compact design. A great advantage is that all configurations are made with a user-friendly configuration program and are stored on the flash disk. It makes it both easy and convenient to set configurations with the PC and download it to Kvaser Memorator for use in the field.

The identifiers can be picked from a database, or all messages can be logged.Memory cardsStandard MMC or SD type flash memory cards can be used. Larger memory cards, up to 1 GB, can be used. See our support pages for more information.
