The GC-CAN-USB adapter is a simple plug in USB 2.0 adapter that allows CAN users to connect their PC to the CAN network. CAN is widely used for 1Mbaud reliable communications in industrial and medical applications. The adapter includes free Windows and Linux drivers and a simple programming API and examples. In industrial applications, Devicenet is the protocol of choice; in many other applications, CANOpen is the selected protocol. Both protocols are supported or the user can develop custom protocols for their specific application.
