HMS Networks Anybus Communicator for EtherNet/IP

Friday, 24 July, 2020 | Supplied by: HMS Industrial Networks

HMS Networks has announced its second-generation Anybus Communicator — a high-performing gateway for connecting devices and machines to industrial networks. The gateway family is suitable for serial to fieldbus and industrial Ethernet connectivity, with millions of devices and machines today relying on the gateways for network connectivity in a wide variety of industrial application areas. Anybus Communicator for EtherNet/IP is now available and versions covering Modbus TCP, PROFINET and PROFIBUS are coming soon.

The second-generation devices are modern, high-performing gateways that are powered by the Anybus NP40 industrial network processor used in all HMS’s embedded solutions. Depending on use case, data cycle times are up to 10 times faster than with the first generation. Users can also benefit from increased data exchange support as up to 1448 B can be transferred from the connected PLC to the gateway, as well as from the gateway to the PLC.

An Ethernet configuration port and web interface enable the user to monitor and diagnose network traffic. The user can immediately see the status of the industrial network connection and serial connection, as well as individual serial node status. Communication logs are provided for further user analysis.

The gateways are packaged in an attractive slim housing for straightforward DIN-rail mounting. They carry all relevant industrial certifications, such as CE and UL markings, and a temperature range of -25 to +70°C is supported to ensure that the devices stay operational in demanding industrial conditions. Furthermore, in order to meet current and future security challenges, all products are equipped with a security chip.
