ValueCAN 4-44 CAN FD - USB Single Cable Interface with IP65 Aluminum Enclosure
Four Channels of CAN FD in One Cable!
The ValueCAN 4-4 is part of the ValueCAN 4 series, a high-quality tool family for CAN FD and CAN 2.0. It builds on the field-tested ValueCAN 3, with the addition of software-controlled CAN termination, lower USB latency, cybersecurity support, standalone operation via 5V USB power supply.
The ValueCAN 4-4 is fully isolated from the PC. The isolation feature, which is not common on low cost interfaces, resolves issues with grounding or noise affecting the PC. The ValueCAN 4-4 is electrically hardened to survive abusive environments, including reverse battery and electrical transients.
The ValueCAN 4-4 has a strong aluminum case with a protective rubber boot. The USB and rugged cable end connectors are integrated in the device allowing users to carry just one cable for their project. (No more missing parts!) The ValueCAN 4-4 has “Surround LEDs” indicating status of the device itself and its networks. The LED configuration can also be customized. The device pinout is printed on the housing to make wiring easy. ValueCAN 4-4 is backed by a one-year warranty.
The ValueCAN 4-4 has been tested and verified to support 4 high-bandwidth CAN FD networks. This includes 100% utilization at 8 Mb/s data rates on both CAN FD channels.
High-Level Protocol Support
The ValueCAN 4-4 is compatible with J1939, OBD2 on CAN, Keyword Protocol over CAN, UDS diagnostics, CCP/XCP, DeviceNet and CANOpen. Cables available for J1939 and diagnostics on CAN. Hardware-implemented ISO15765 allows super fast CAN FD ECU flashing.
The ValueCAN 4-4 can be used with Vehicle Spy software, a powerful vehicle bus analyzer for monitoring messages and configuring baud rates. Vehicle Spy’s other features include filtering traffic, decoding message data, building scripts, simulating nodes, creating GUIs to control, log and view data, and building graphical displays of data. Real Time Acceleration and Standalone Mode enable High Speed Flashing, Gateway, and ECU simulation.
The ValueCAN 4-4 can load real-time Function Block scripts and C code created with Vehicle Spy Professional, which execute in real time at microsecond resolution. Scripts can be controlled and monitored with a PC or operate standalone.
Intrepid Security Module (ISM) for Cybersecurity
ISM allows for an embedded CCIF (C Code Interface). For example, a CCIF project can run in standalone mode with the Coremini feature. This makes vehicle network data accessible so it can be processed with the embedded DLL. This feature makes encryption and authentication of vehicle network data possible.
CAN Bus Termination Test
The ValueCAN 4-4 can be used with Vehicle Spy to check the termination of an attached CAN network. This is done by generating a CAN error frame and measuring how much time the bus takes to recover from the error (with microsecond-level resolution).
For those who wish to write their own applications, ValueCAN 4 includes a DLL and helpful examples for Python, Visual C++, C++ Builder, LabWindows CVI, LabVIEW, Java, MATLAB, Delphi, Excel, and Visual Basic. For more information on the DLL, please see the neoVI DLL documentation (ValueCAN 4 uses the neoVI DLL).
