Anybus CompactCom NP40 Network Processor

Award winning technology giving best-in-class performance

The cutting-edge Anybus CompactCom B40-serie is based on the Anybus CompactCom NP40 technology – a multi-protocol network processor used within millions of devices globally.

Anybus NP40 handles the complete communication and provides high performance for real-time applications. As a result, the B40 series is extremely suitable for both general purpose and for high-end applications with large I/O data transfer, fast network cycles and synchronization demands

B40 Brick Connector Boards

The B40 Brick is mounted on the host PCB to o enable communication with the chosen network. The module can be secured using two M3 screws
B40 series offers a free choice of connection to the desired network. We offer ready-made connector boards – including Physical network layer - for all supported networks in order to facilitate the design-in.

Connection can easily be made with a different network, by replacing both the B40 Brick and the connector board.


  • Easy mounting, pluggable and solderable male strip connector
  • Standard connector and standard network signals thanks to the built-in physical layer
  • Safe and secure mounting of the brick interface to the host PCB design
  • Full connector flexibility on the network side
