2 Installation
This chapter describes how to connect the USB-CAN adapter with a computer and the precautions when connecting the USB-CAN adapter with a computer for the first time.
2.1 Driver and software installation
Note: Before install the driver or software, please ensure that the user login an administrator account of Windows, or the user account has permissions to install the driver and software, otherwise it may lead to the installation failed.
2.1.1 Install driver and software
ECANTools has been integrated with hardware driver installation program, users can directly install ECANTools. If you only need to install the driver, please enter the “driver” folder, select the installation file that corresponds to the system type. (“DriverSetup.exe” for 32-bit. “DriverSetup64.exe” for 64-bit)
2.1.2 Uninstall driver and software
Users can run the DriverSetup.exe/DriverSetup64.exe and click “Uninstall” button to uninstall the installed device driver.
2.2 Connect to PC
USBCAN-modul 8 using DC +24V DC power supply, DC +24V and with USB access.
2.3 Connect to CAN-Bus
USBCAN-modul 8 interface card integrated 8-channel CAN channels, 8 DB9 (CiA) interface, the terminal pin is defined as shown in Table 2.1.

Normally communication requires CAN_H with bus CAN_H, CAN_L with bus CAN_L.
