PCI express card
Peak-System extended its CAN FD range and continues the series of the PCAN-PCI Express FD with a four-channel version.
This extension allows computers with PCI Express slots to be integrated into CAN FD and Classical CAN networks. Two of the four CAN ports can be connected to the two-channel slot bracket included in the scope of supply via flat-ribbon cables. Each channel can transmit data frames with a length of up to 64 byte. The CAN ports are galvanically isolated (up to 500 V), and can be provided with a CAN termination. The CAN FD controller is able to process data incoming with bit rates up to 12 Mbit/s. Currently, the ISO 11898-2 standard for physical transmission specifies transceiver parameters for up to 5 Mbit/s.
For Windows 10, 8.1, and 7 as well as for Linux operating systems, device drivers are available. The PCAN-View monitoring software and the PCAN-Basic programming interface for the development of applications with CAN connection are included in the scope of delivery and support ISO CAN FD.
