Anybus Communicator™ and X-gateway™ — more than 300 stand-alone gateways for connecting devices, machines, systems or networks. For example: Serial/CAN Gateways / Network to Network Gateways / IIoT Gateways / Edge Gateways / Factory to Building gateways, between others.
Anybus Wireless Solutions allows you to connect machines and devices over Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Cellular networks and Industrial Ethernet. We offers a broad range of products for industrial use with wireless technologies and wired Ethernet. There are also cellular modems using high performance LTE/4G and LPWA (Low Power Wide Area) networks enabled by NB-IoT and CAT-M1. Wireless communication in tough and demanding applications is nothing new. Wireless has been around for more than 40 years using proprietary radios. However, with the modernization of industrial networks and the emergence of different Ethernet protocols and the Industrial Internet of Things, there is an increasing demand for standardized wireless technologies.
Simply connect to your computer and you have a very cost-efficient alternative to a PLC or PC-card.
By using Anybus Master Simulators you can set up and test slaves/adapters on PROFIBUS, PROFINET, CANopen and DeviceNET without having a PLC in place.
They are ideal for test-wiring of inputs and outputs and reading and writing analog values. They are useful during setup of slave/adapters in a network as well as during final inspection tests at the device manufacturer.
