The Next Generation of Rugged CAN Interfaces For Earth’s Toughest Environments

CAN communications don’t always happen in the lab. They happen in service bays, on construction sites, in agricultural fields and in open-cut mines. So we’ve built the next generation of rugged USB CAN interfaces, ready for anything nature has to throw at them.


Kvaser Leaf Light R v2

High-Performance, Low-Cost and Rugged Single-Channel USB/CAN Communication. A ruggedized version of Kvaser’s popular Leaf Light v2 interface.


Kvaser USBcan R v2 2xHS

High-Performance, Two-Channel USB/CAN Communication in a Ruggedized Housing.  Similar to Kvaser’s popular USBcan Pro 2xHS v2 interface.


IP65 Rated

Dustproof and splashproof to keep on working no matter what Mother Nature throws at you.

Handles the Heat & the Cold

From -40°C to +70°C, Kvaser’s rugged devices can handle the coldest and hottest places on the planet.

Aluminium, Poly-Coated Housing

An all-new impact-resistant housing protects from bumps and drops, splashes, dust and more.
