Anybus® CompactCom - Embedded plug-in modules for Industrial Networks

Supplier: Global Automation

Anybus CompactCom is a family of certified and proven interchangeable plug-in communication interfaces designed for integration into industrial automation devices.

Price Guide: POA

They incorporate the complete functionality of an industrial network interface with slave/adapter functionality including the physical connection, hardware interface and protocol functionality.

Anybus CompactCom (Anybus-CC) modules provide instant connectivity to all leading fieldbus, industrial Ethernet protocols, serial, USB and wireless networks without the need for any hardware and software changes to your automation device. Anybus-CC is the latest range of communication interfaces from HMS Industrial Networks built on the proven Anybus technology with over 900,000 modules sold worldwide. With its innovative design and versatile functionality Anybus-CC provides optimal flexibility and fast time-to-market for automation device manufacturers.

Built on latest Anybus ASIC technology
Developed in conjunction with and powered by the "Anybus NP30" network communication processor, Anybus-CC combines high performance and functionality with low power consumption. The high level of integration allows for a smaller size, and extremely competitive pricing.

Instant connectivity
Anybus-CC provides automation devices with an option interface allowing for instant connectivity to all leading industrial networks. Automation devices with an integrated Anybus-CC slot can use any Anybus-CC module. For example, you can simply exchange an Anybus-CC Profibus module with an Anybus-CC EtherNet/IP module and be instantly connected to that network without the need for hardware and software changes in your automation device.

Innovative design - with or without housing
Anybus-CC is supplied in two standard versions, one with housing and one without housing. The robust plastic housing completely covers the electronics and allows for easy handling at any time in the logistic chain between the manufacturer and end customer.

Typical applications
Anybus-CC has been designed to fit into many types of industrial automation devices. HMI's, robot controllers, drives, micro PLC's, valve manifolds, instruments, weigh scales, temperature controllers, bar-code scanners, I/O blocks, welding controllers and RFID applications are just some of todays automation devices that are using Anybus-CC technology for their network option interface.
