Single or dual channel interface boards in PCI Express format for use in CAN and CANopen networks.
- Low Profile Card Allows Ultra Compact Systems
- Optimum Integration Through Versatile API
- Quick and Easy to Get Started Thanks to Comprehensive Source Code Samples
Versatile Interface for Standard Software and Custom Applications
CANpro PCI Express provides access to CAN bus networks for PC applications. The card is available in single and dual channel versions as well as a low profile version for ultra compact PC systems. CANpro PCI Express is a universal interface solution for any CAN application – whether it’s bus analyzers, machine controllers or test rigs.
Rapid Integration With the Right Software Interface
Softing provides drivers with a versatile API to allow optimized programming for specific application requirements. In FIFO mode, all sent and received messages are buffered to ensure that no data is lost when the computer is busy with other tasks. The Object Buffer mode allows the application to focus on messages of interest, and automatically buffers the data recently received by the application. The application can access the buffered data at any time, and is not burdened with other messages. The CANpro PCI Express interface board can automatically transmit data on the bus in exact and individually configurable cycles.
A CANopen Client API is also included for use in CANopen networks.
Sample projects with commented source code demonstrate how the boards are used with C, C# or VB.Net.
