CAN Interface Board with galvanic Isolation

CANUSB-ISO is a board-level unit, based on the CANUSB adapter from LAWICEL, so it offers all the features of the standard version - driver software, protocols and API are the same for both versions.

It serves as a CAN interface converter to be integrated in automation devices, machines or PCs with a USB interface.

Why is Galvanic Isolation Important?

Galvanic isolation between CAN bus devices is used to increase system reliability in industrial applications. Different units within a bus system may expose different electrical potential levels. This can cause temporary errors or permanent malfunction of the CAN bus, especially in systems covering a wide area. The only effective counter-measure is to isolate the voltage domains from each other.

If your CAN Bus is critical to your operations, then choose this isolated version.

CAN Pin Assignments

CAN bus pinout

Pin assignment comply with CiA recommendations DS102-1.
The interface is powered from USB port, so there is no need to connect external power on pin 9. Only CAN_L (pin2), CAN_H (Pin7) and CAN_GND (pin3) need to be connected.

Connector options

While the standard CANUSB is housed in an enclosure, this OEM version comes as a board level device. The input USB connector and the 9-pin D-Sub connector on the CAN side are common for all CANUSB family members. However, CANUSB-ISO offers a number of optional connector configurations.

Instead of the mini-B connector mounted on the USB side, a 2x5 header connector can be used. The pin assignment follows the scheme commonly used on many PC motherboards.

On the CAN side, a terminal block can be installed instead of the 9-pin D-Sub connector mounted by default.
