Kvaser U100-C

Kvaser U100-C

Product code: 01340-7

Kvaser U100-C is a single channel CAN bus interface (USB Type-C) with a lightweight yet highly durable, IP67-rated housing that assures reliable protection against water and dust ingress.


With the latest laptops and PCs shipping with USB-C slots only, the Kvaser U100-C is being added to Kvaser’s U100 range of robust, single-channel CAN/CAN FD to USB interfaces. This interface is based on the standard Kvaser U100 with DB-9 connector, but replaces the standard USB type “A” connector with the smaller USB-C format. As with other devices in the range, this is powered via the USB connector.
