The PCAN-PCI/104-Express card enables the connection of one, two, or four CAN busses to a PCI/104-Express system. Up to four cards can be stacked together. The CAN bus is connected using a 9-pin D-Sub plug on the slot brackets supplied. There is galvanic isolation of up to 500 Volts between the computer and CAN sides. The card is available as a single, dual, or four-channel version.

The package is also supplied with the CAN monitor PCAN-View for Windows® and the programming interface PCAN-Basic.
