Anybus Hardware

Anybus Communicator CAN

Connect your CAN devices to any major fieldbus or industrial Ethernet networks with the Anybus Communicator. The Communicator performs an intelligent conversion between the CAN protocol of the automation device and the chosen industrial network.

For industrial devices with a CAN 2.0A or 2.0B port, HMS makes it possible to configure almost any Produce/Consume, Request/Response protocols with its flexible CAN frame building method. No proprietary configuration software is needed. All necessary configuration is performed using the Anybus Configuration Manager that accompanies the gateway.

Anybus Communicator RTU

Connect your non-networked device to any major fieldbus or industrial Ethernet networks with the Anybus Communicator. The Communicator performs an intelligent conversion between the serial protocol of the automation device and the chosen industrial network.

For industrial devices with a serial Modbus-RTU interface, HMS takes away the hassle of scripting and serial frame building by using visual template wizards contained within the included “Anybus Configuration Manager”. This enables you to get your devices connected fast.

Anybus Communicator DF1

Connect your non-networked device to any major fieldbus or industrial Ethernet networks with the Anybus Communicator. The Communicator performs an intelligent conversion between the serial protocol of the automation device and the chosen industrial network.

For industrial devices with a Rockwell DF1 serial interface, HMS takes away the hassel of scripting and serial frame building by using visual template wizards contained within the included “Anybus Configuration Manager”. This enables you to get your devices connected fast.

Anybus Communicator RS-232/422/485

Connect your non-networked device to any major fieldbus or industrial Ethernet networks with the Anybus Communicator. The Communicator performs an intelligent conversion between the serial protocol of the automation device and the chosen industrial network.

For industrial devices with a serial RS-232/422/485 interface, HMS makes it possible to configure almost any Produce/Consume, Request/Response or simple ASCII protocols with its flexible serial frame building method contained within the included “Anybus Configuration Manager”.


Anybus X-gateway

The Anybus X-gateway series consists of over 200 different products aimed at connecting almost any possible combination of industrial networks.The X-gateways are designed for use in industrial automation plants, where many different networks are used. The X-gateways help system integrators to easily interconnect any two networks. The product family offers Master/Scanner functionality for Profibus, DeviceNet, EtherNet/IP and AS-Interface and includes Slave/Adapter functionality to16 other networks.
Connect any combination of Fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet from networks such as: CANopen, CC-Link, ControlNet, J1939, Lonworks, Interbus, Modbus RTU, as well as industrial Ethernet versions supporting Profinet, Profinet-IRT, IRT Fiber Optic, EtherNet/IP, ModbusTCP, EtherCAT and CC-Link IE Field. For some Ethernet networks the X-gateway supports dual port Ethernet interfaces which allows for daisy-chaining and removes the need for an external switch.


Anybus X-gateway CAN

The Anybus X-gateway CANopen family allows any CANopen enabled device with slave functionality to communicate with almost any other fieldbus or Industrial Ethernet network.

The X-gateway CANopen series provides CANopen Master (Manager) or Slave functionality on the CANopen network and Slave/Adapter functionality to all popular fieldbusses such as Profibus, DeviceNet, Modbus, ControlNet and for industrial Ethernet with Profinet, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT and Modbus TCP.

Anybus X-gateway – Modbus-TCP Master/Client

All new enhanced design for streamlined connectivity:
The X-gateway Modbus TCP design meets the industrial demands for functionality, robustness, size, durability and most importantly ease of use. It offers many benefits for the user such as easier cable connection and backplane stacking possibilities.

Handy SD memory card slot saves time and know how:
The design also includes an SD memory card slot for fast and easy backup, configuration and if necessary for an “easy module replacement” which saves crucial time and resources.

 

Anybus Wireless Bridge

Anybus Wireless Bridge enables you create a robust wireless connection to an industrial device.
The solution is ideal for communication through hazardous areas or hard-to-reach locations where cables are not desirable.

Wireless transmission is made via Bluetooth™ or WLAN technology and there are several versions available for both serial and industrial Ethernet communication.

 

Anybus M-Bus Measuring Device

With the M-Bus to RS232 converter and an Anybus Communicator you can connect measuring devices running M-Bus to any fieldbus or industrial Ethernet network.

By getting data on consumed electricity, water, gas etc. straight into your PLC system, you can get a complete overview of your site in a SCADA system, including building parameters which otherwise have to be checked separately.

Anybus BACnet

BACnet Protocol

 

BACnet is a data communication protocol mainly used in the building automation and HVAC industry (Heating Ventilation and Air-Conditioning).

 

The protocol allows equipment such as air conditioning machines, pumps and ventilation devices to communicate with a PLC. This creates “intelligent” houses with a high degree of automation.

 

BACnet stands for Building Automation and Control Networks and was first developed in 1987 with the backing of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). BACnet is an American national standard, a European standard, a national standard in more than 30 countries, and an ISO global standard.
