ValueCAN 4-2

Low Cost Two Channel CAN FD USB Interface with IP65 Aluminum Enclosure
The ValueCAN 4-2 is the next-generation, low-cost, high-performance tool for CAN FD, backward compatible with CAN 2.0. The ValueCAN 4-2 comes with all the field-tested features of the ValueCAN 3, plus much more, including software-controlled CAN termination, increased buffer size, improved USB latency performance, and standalone operating capability using a USB charger.

The ValueCAN 4-2 supports 2x CAN or CAN FD channels, has USB Type A and Type C options available, and certified drivers for Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10.

ValueCAN 4-2


Superior Engineering

The ValueCAN 4-2 is fully isolated from the PC, and its isolation layer is self-powered from USB, which eliminates the need for external power for the CAN transceiver. The ValueCAN 4-2’s isolation, a feature not common on low-cost interfaces, eliminates issues with grounding or noise affecting your PC and its communications. The ValueCAN 4-2 is also electrically hardened to survive an abusive environment, including reverse battery voltage and electrical transients. To make wiring easy, the device pinout is printed clearly on the housing. The ValueCAN 4-2 is also backed by a one-year warranty.

High Performance

The ValueCAN 4-2 has been tested and verified to operate on high-bandwidth CAN FD networks. This includes 100% utilization at 8 Mbs speed on both channels.

Real-Time Acceleration and Standalone Mode for High-Speed Flashing, Gatewaying, and ECU Simulation

The ValueCAN 4-2 can load real-time Function Block scripts and C code created with Vehicle Spy Professional. These scripts then execute in real time with microsecond resolution. The scripts can be controlled and monitored with a PC application or operate in standalone mode.

High Level Protocols Supported

The ValueCAN 4-2 is compatible with J1939, OBD2 on CAN, Keyword Protocol over CAN, UDS diagnostics, CCP/XCP, DeviceNet, and CANOpen. We offer cables for J1939 and automotive diagnostics on CAN. ISO15765 for CAN FD is implemented in hardware, which allows for super-fast ECU flashing.

Software Support: Turn-Key

Vehicle Spy is a powerful vehicle bus analyzer for monitoring messages and configuring baud rates. The professional user will want to upgrade to the full version of Vehicle Spy, which lets you filter traffic, decode message data, build scripts, and simulate other nodes. You can also build GUIs to control, log, view, and build graphical displays of your data.

Intrepid Security Module (ISM) for Cybersecurity:

ISM runs an embedded code with the support of Coremini Standalone mode feature. ISMs embedded code can be used for encryption and authentication of vehicle network data as part of the CyberSecurity.
Among other use cases, ISM can support Real-Time processing of the Vehicle Network Data and CCP secure access.

CAN Bus Termination Test

You can use the ValueCAN 4-2 with Vehicle Spy to check the termination of an attached CAN network. This is done by generating a CAN error frame and measuring how much time the bus takes to recover from the error, with microsecond-level resolution.


Create Your Application Using the Included Intrepid DLL API, J2534 API, or RP1210 API

For those who wish to write their own applications, the ValueCAN 4-2 includes the neoVI DLL and helpful examples for Python, Visual C++ and Visual Basic. For more information, please see the neoVI DLL documentation.
