SFF PC case and PCI Express card & MITM Device

Post by RetepSnikrep » Sat 1. May 2021, 13:56

I presume the dual port PCAN PCI-Express card IPEH-004027 will be too high/tall to fit into an Dell Optiplex 790 SFF case.

Is there a short version?

If it could fit then can the dual CAN port PCI express card act as a MITM device with the PC Explorer 5 software on a 500kbps bus?

Can it pass data back and forth if inserted into a working bus while i manipulate packets using the explorer software if necessary?

i.e. CANBUSA <<<<<<>>>>>>> PCAN E PortA <EXPLORER 5> PCAN E PortB <<<<<<<>>>>>> CANBUSA

We do not offer a low profile variant of the PCAN-PCIe interface, but you could potentially use
the PCAN-MiniPCIe and our MiniPCIe to Low-Profile PCIe adaptor:

PCAN-MiniPCIe dual channel (IPEH-003049):

MiniPCIe to LP PCIe Adaptor (IPEH-003029):

As to your second question:

Yes, this can be done.

We have a 1:1 routing example in our PCAN-Explorer 5 macro example package,
which you could modify to manipulate the data as needed.

If you are interested in getting the sample, please contact us with your PE5 license-ID:


Best Regards
