Yes this is the one that works, and is manufactured by Lawicel.

A new design CANUSB is coming very soon.

The picture below shows the difference between the new and the old CANUSB.

The new one comes with a connector for a type B USB cable, which is not supplied with the unit. The old cable was 1 metre long, and any size up to 2 metres can be used. Sorry, we don't have cables in stock. You must supply your own.

Technical specifications are identical, however, a new board has been designed so the PCB sizes mentioned below are not accurate.

CANUSB is a very small dongle that plugs into any PC USB Port and gives an instant CAN connectivity. This means it can be treated by software as a standard COM Port (serial RS232 port) which eliminates the need for any extra drivers or by installing a direct driver DLL for faster communications and higher CAN bus loads. Sending and receiving can be done in standard ASCII format.

Length: 55mm, Width: 36mm, Height: 16mm. Blue Transparent Case, 1 meter shielded USB cable.

  • Free Linux driver availible
  • Green LED for CAN activity
  • Red LED for CAN error activity
  • Firmware updatable via USB

The module plugs directly into a standard USB port and provides a standard DB9 male output to CAN systems according to CiA (CAN in Automation) DS102-1 recommendations. It is self powered from USB. It consumes max 100mA, but normally not more than 60mA (this depends on BUS load and eventual CAN cable errors etc.). Use your own RS232 LIB/drivers (in e.g. Visual Basic, Deplhi, C++ etc.) together with the free Virtual COM port driver or use the free Direct driver DLL (see Download page for drivers). Works on Windows and Linux platforms. Easy to migrate from CAN232 to CANUSB with some small software changes. Free Windows Threaded CANUSB API DLL or use the ActiveX controller, write applications in a snap.

CAN Pin assignement:

Pin assignement according to CiA recommendations DS102-1.
The CANUSB is powered from USB port, so no need to connect external
power on pin 9. Use only CAN_L (pin2), CAN_H (Pin7) and CAN_GND (pin3).


Looking inside the CANUSB, you find a dense 4-layer printed circuit boards with parts on both sides of the PCB. The CANUSB is firmware upgradable through the USB interface, so customers easily can update firware when we release a new improved software or new functions in the software. CANUSB is also CE ceritified and RoHS compliant, which many other similar products are not.
