CAN-to-Ethernet Used to Be a Hassle.
We Fixed That.

The Kvaser Ethercan Light HS makes it easy to access CAN data from anywhere on your network, and anywhere in the world.

Meet the Kvaser Ethercan

In the past, connecting CAN devices to your network was a complicated process
that often delivered erratic results. The Kvaser Ethercan Light HS fixes both problems.

Simple, Reliable CAN-to-Ethernet

What Kvaser Ethercan Users Are Saying

“The Kvaser Ethercan provides greater stability of connection than USB because Ethernet permits a small disconnection from time to time.”

Case Study: Real-Time
Cargo Crane Monitoring

In shipping ports, administrators can now collect real-time data on their crane’s movements, fuel consumption, load weight and more. The solution uses Datamatics Group’s Neptuno TOS software, which is being fed data by Kvaser Ethercan Light HS hardware.

Thanks to this solution, port operators can now break down the cost of every individual crane movement, precisely locate containers and optimize operations on an unprecedented scale.

Keep Up on CAN Innovation

Keep in the loop and learn how the CAN protocol is being used to drive innovation across a wide range of industries.
