ImageAccurate Technologies launches new Kvaser CAN Interface at 2013 European Testing Expo.

Evolution, not revolution: New housing and galvanic isolation as standard for Kvaser Leaf Light v2 HS now available from Accurate Technologies

Principal European Kvaser AB technical partner and qualified reseller Accurate Technologies Incorporated (ATI) is delighted to launch a new version of the well-known Leaf Light CAN to USB interface at the 2013 Automotive Testing Expo in Stuttgart on June 3, 2013.  As part of the launch program Kvaser AB has provided 10 Leaf Light v2 HS units to giveaway to selected winners on the ATI booth, which can be located at stand number 1840.

Kvaser's evolution of the successful predecessor sees galvanic isolation become a standard feature of the new look interface, which features a sleek, ergonomically designed housing that makes the Leaf Light v2 HS easier to hold and use.

The Leaf Light is perhaps the easiest way to connect a computer to a CAN bus network by means of the USB 2.0 compliant connector and 9-pin D-SUB connector.  Having made its name as the work-horse of USB to CAN interface, it provides a reliable, low cost tool for connecting any CAN network to a PC or mobile computer in applications as wide ranging as automotive, mining, marine, military, oil and gas exploration, military, industrial and heavy machinery.

The Leaf Light is the most popular entry level Kvaser CAN interface.  Despite being a "Light" is boasts some impressive functionality including high speed USB support with a transfer rate of up to 8000 messages per second, time-stamped with 100 microsecond accuracy.  Galvanic isolation, previously a more expensive option on Kvaser's original Leaf Light, now comes as standard on the new Leaf Light v2, enhancing protection from power surges or electrical shocks.  But despite these specification improvements, CAN Leaf Light v2 will be offered at the same price point, representing exceptional value for customers.

Commenting on the announcement, Martin Sventen Business Manager at ATI Sweden AB said 'Kvaser's CAN interfaces are proven, reliable, high quality products.  They perfectly compliment Accurate Technologies' portfolio of software and it is a sign of the close co-operation between the two companies that Kvaser asked ATI to manage the global launch of the Leaf Light v2 HS at 2013 Testing Expo Europe.'

The Leaf Light v2 is available now from Accurate Technologies' worldwide offices and comes supplied with free software, free updates and free global technical support.  For more information on the Kvaser Leaf Light v2 interface, please log on to: www.accuratetechnologies.com.
