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.
It Just Works

Setting up the Kvaser Ethercan Light HS couldn’t be easier. You plug one end into your CAN device. You plug the other end into your network. And, you’ve installed your Kvaser Ethercan.

It’s Easy to Power

With built-in support for both Power over Ethernet (PoE) and Power over CAN, powering your Kvaser Ethercan Light HS is simple and versatile.

It Keeps On Working

Networks, and especially remote networks, have disruptions. The Kvaser Ethercan Light HS is built to be fault tolerant and to keep working correctly even during minor network disruptions.

It’s Easy to Reset

Every Kvaser Ethercan Light HS comes with a factory reset device. Plug it in, push a button and your Kvaser Ethercan Light HS returns to its factory settings.

It’s Accessible from the Next Room, or the Next Continent

You can isolate Kvaser Ethercan Light HS on your local network, or you can make it accessible via HTTP to reach your Kvaser Ethercan Light HS from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.

It’s Compatible with the Standards You Use

The Kvaser Ethercan Light HS is fully compatible with J1939, CANopen, NMEA® and DeviceNet, plus it works with Kvaser’s universal API.

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.
