ValueCAN3 delivers value by being a simple, low cost, high performance, and high quality tool for connecting your PC to a Controller Area Network (CAN) bus. It has become a low cost standard for many large corporations including automotive, military, industrial networking, and heavy commercial vehicle OEMs and their suppliers.

Quality is what you expect and deserve

ValueCAN3 was designed as a high quality CAN tool solution. ValueCAN3 is fully isolated from the PC and includes certified drivers for Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8.X, 10 and Linux. ValueCAN3's isolation layer is self powered from USB which eliminates the need for external power for the CAN transceiver.

ValueCAN3's isolation, a feature not common on low cost interfaces, resolves issues with grounding or noise affecting your PC and its communications. ValueCAN3 is also electrically hardened to survive an abusive environment including reverse battery and electrical transients. To make wiring easy, the device pin-out is printed clearly on the housing. Finally, ValueCAN3 is backed by a 1 year warranty.

This performance is enabled by including a large 1 megabyte buffer on the device.
