Diagnostic Interface VIN|ING 800

Flexible and Rugged CAN & CAN-FD Interface for all Areas of Application

VIN|ING 800 unites state-of-the-art hardware design for CAN FD, maximum sturdiness through all-round impact protection and an attractive price. For many service applications requiring just one CAN interface, this device is the perfect choice as it provides a lean and at the same time powerful interface from the application to the vehicle.VIN|ING 800 can also be used to solve communication tasks quickly and easily in the development of vehicle systems.

Areas of Application

  • Universal communication via USB to Classic CAN or CAN FD
  • Simple implementation of communication tasks in the development of vehicle systems
  • Applications in the After-Sales Service environment


  • High-performance CAN communication via microcontroller on the device
  • Simple handling with USB and D-SUB in compliance with CiA
  • Handy, ruggedized housing
  • Safety due to galvanic isolation between USB and CAN bus
  • Inexpensive solution



The VCI has a CAN Layer 2 API as a programming interface and offers powerful communication mechanisms for lots of CAN applications. Local buffering and preprocessing on the VCI result in high performance and a reduction of time-critical tasks for the PC.


The standardized programming interface provides applications with powerful multi-channel communication mechanisms with vehicle protocols, such as Diagnostics on CAN (ISO 15765) and UDS (ISO 14229). It also allows integration into diagnostic systems in accordance with ISO 22900 (MVCI). D-PDU API is also available as an option.


If your application requires more than one CAN bus at any time, the number of communication channels available at the PC can quickly be increased. This takes place by combining the existing CAN interface with further VCIs from Softing.


Combining the VIN|ING 800 with appropriate API software enables compact solutions for all kinds of communication applications. The CAN API thus supports reliable CAN communication on Layer 2 in a simple way. The optional D-PDU API software makes communication channels with higher diagnostic protocols available to applications via the standardized API and thus relieves the application of standard tasks.
