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

The New Industry Standard

LED Interface

The Kvaser 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.

Electrically Robust

Connected to a system with different electrical potentials, the Kvaser U100 mitigates the risk of disturbance caused by current leakage to measurements on the system under test. Able to withstand voltage stress over a much longer timescale than equivalent interfaces, the Kvaser U100 is both electrically and physically robust.

Ruggedized Design

The Kvaser U100 is made to operate in tough environments, with IP67 water and dust resistance, reinforced galvanic isolation. (Tested according EN 60335-1:2012 paragraph 13, 5000VAC rms applied 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).
