2. Installation

This chapter describes how to connect the USB-CAN adapter to the computer and the precautions when connecting the USB-CAN adapter to the computer for the first time.

2.1 Driver and software installation

Note: Before install the driver or software, please ensure that the user login windows account is administrator, or the user account has to install the driver and software related permissions, otherwise it may lead to the installation failed.

USB power supply mode is suitable for the most applications, such as: when USBCAN-Mini is the only device in USB port.

2.2.2 External power supply mode (only the USBCAN-II Pro support)

External power supply mode is suitable for the USB port using an USB HUB and have already connect multiple USB device, this will lead to the adapter lack of electricity supply.

2.3 Connect to CAN-Bus

USBCAN-Mini has one CAN-Bus by DB9 port, this CAN-Bus channels can connect to CAN-Bus network or devices. DB9 pin definition as Table 2.1 below.



 
Note: In practical use, most of the time just connected the CAN_H to CAN_H and CAN_L connected to CAN_L then communication can be realized
