PCAN is a flexible system for the planning, development and use of CAN networks. The basis for the communication of PCs to external hardware via a CAN bus are Windows® kernel mode drivers. These form the core of a complete CAN network environment on a PC running Windows®.
This device driver manages the entire data traffic of all hardware connected to the PC. The interface to the user or the operator of a CAN-networked system are so-called PCAN clients. Process variables can be visualized and influenced with their help. The driver allows the connection of several clients, which can communicate with CAN buses. It supports several hardware components, which are based on the CAN controller SJA1000 from NXP.
PCAN-Developer consists of a single-user user license for the development package as well as a distribution license for the PCAN-Developer Redistributable. This package contains the API DLLs as well as the software PCAN-View, PCAN-CPL, PCAN-Nets Configuration and PCAN status display.
