Wireless communication link CAN bus (WLAN) high performance Kvaser BlackBird v2 (EAN: 73-30130-00671-3) for the High Speed CAN bus. More powerful and versatile a WLAN solution than Kvaser's original BlackBird, Kvaser BlackBird v2 incorporates a new radio chip with up to 75% better range.

The Kvaser BlackBird v2's ability to leverage existing wireless infrastructure makes it ideal for replacing cumbersome cable, accessing hard-to-reach CAN networks, or for monitoring a CANbus while in motion.


I. Major features of Wireless communication link CAN bus Kvaser BlackBird v2

  • Wireless/USB CAN interface with Kvaser t programmability.
  • Easy one click configuration using Kvaser Wi-Fi Pairing tool.
  • Supports Kvaser REST API.
  • Can be either public or private.
  • Supports high data throughput and prevents bottlenecks with quick reaction times and precise time stamping.
  • Supports both 11-bit (CAN 2.0A) and 29-bit (CAN 2.0B Active) identifiers.
  • Large on-board RAM buffer for CAN messages.
  • Supports silent mode for analysis tools – listen to the bus without interfering.
  • 100 % compatible with applications written using Kvaser CANlib targeting other Kvaser CAN hardware.
  • High-speed CAN connection (compliant with ISO 11898-2), up to 1 Mbit/s.
  • Fully compatible with J1939, CANopen, NMEA 2000 and DeviceNet.
  • One USB 2.0 Hi-Speed connection with data rates up to 480 Mbit/s while being compatible with USB 1.x and USB 3.0.
  • Rugged aluminum housing.
  • Supports 802.11b/g/n.

II. Software

  • Documentation, software and drivers can be downloaded for free at: kvaser.com/downloads.
  • Kvaser CANLIB SDK is a free resource that includes everything you need to develop software for the Kvaser CAN interfaces. Includes full documentation and many program samples, written in C, C++, C#, Delphi, and Visual Basic.
  • All Kvaser CAN interface boards share a common software API. Programs written for one interface type will run without modifications on the other interface types!
  • J2534 Application Programming Interface available.
  • RP1210A Application Programming Interface available.
  • On-line documentation in Windows HTML-Help and Adobe Acrobat format.

III. Interface

Wireless communication link CAN bus (WLAN) high performance Kvaser BlackBird v2 (EAN: 73-30130-00671-3) provides a CAN bus interface through a standard USB interface or remotely over Wi-Fi.

IV. The t programming language

The Kvaser t programming language is event oriented and modelled after C. It can be used to customize the behavior of the Kvaser BlackBird v2 and other Kvaser t capable devices.

A t program is invoked via hooks, which are entry points that are executed at the occurrence of certain events. These events can be, for example, the arrival of specific CAN messages or a timer expiration.

Like any Kvaser CAN interface, the Kvaser BlackBird v2 can be used via CANlib on a host computer. The addition of t programs running directly on the Kvaser BlackBird v2 makes it possible to react much quicker to CAN bus events (for example to speed up file transfer protocols or to simulate missing hardware).

For more information, see the Kvaser t Programming Language guide that can be downloaded at www.kvaser.com/download.


V. Kvaser BlackBird v2 hardware

Hardware installation:

  • For the Kvaser BlackBird v2 to communicate with the host computer, a compatible version of the Kvaser driver and firmware must be installed.
  • After the driver has been installed on the host computer, the firmware may then be downloaded and installed on the Kvaser BlackBird v2.
  • The latest version of the driver and firmware can be downloaded from www.kvaser.com/download.
  • The driver is installed by running the file kvaser_drivers_setup.exe.
  • The Kvaser BlackBird v2 may be inserted in any free USB socket on the host computer. You do not need to switch the power off before inserting or removing the device.

USB connector:

  • The Kvaser BlackBird v2 has a standard USB type “A” connector.

CAN connector:

  • The Kvaser BlackBird v2 has a 9-pin D-SUB CAN.

Power supply:

  • The Kvaser BlackBird v2 can be powered from the CAN side or from the USB side. The device automatically switches between the CAN (primary) and the USB (secondary) power supply, reducing the power drain on host laptop’s battery.
  • To operate the Kvaser BlackBird v2 as a wireless CAN interface, you must supply power on the CAN side. To use the device as a USB CAN interface or to configure the device, power on the USB side is sufficient.

LED indicators:

  • The LED indicators have somewhat different meaning depending on how your Kvaser BlackBird v2 is being used – as a CAN interface or a wireless interface. Table describes the general purpose of each LED.



General meaning
CAN (Yellow)

Status for CAN channel.

INFO (Orange)

General Information.

Indicates temporary or permanent errors.

WLAN (Blue)

WLAN status.
POWER (Green)

Power and general status.

  • The ERROR LED indicator can give more information about the cause of failure.


Auxiliary Signal General Meaning
Blink CAN LED blinks

CAN channel is in error passive mode

Slower blink

CAN LED blinks CAN channel is bus off
Short flash -

Error frame detected

  • A steady light on ERROR LED is used to indicate a variety of situations. Check the other LED signals to identify the issue.


Signal bursts General Meaning
INFO 1 short blink

CAN overrun


5 short blinks Major error
INFO 6 short blinks

WLAN failure


Continuous fast blink
