The Most Flexible, Rugged and Intuitive CAN & CAN-FD
to USB Interface We’ve Ever Built

LED Interface

The U100 has an all-new, intuitive LED interface. Two high-visibility LED bars give realtime feedback on CAN traffic status, showing busload and error codes.

Modular Architecture

The U100’s modular architecture allows PC- or CANbus- side cable replacement (by authorized Kvaser party) without compromising IP67 integrity. This reduces cost over the product’s lifecycle and allows fast delivery of custom configurations

Ruggedized Design

The U100 is made to operate in tough environments, with IP67 water and dust resistance, galvanic isolation tested at 5,000 AC voltage RMS for 60 seconds and an operating temperature of -40° C to +85° C.

More Flexibility

Compatible with J1939, CANopen, NMEA 2000® and DeviceNet. Supported on Windows and Linux (incl. SocketCAN).
