Embedded DeviceNet slave interface

Anybus CompactCom M40 DeviceNet plug-in module

The Anybus CompactCom M40 for DeviceNet is a complete embedded plug-in communication module which enables your products to communicate on an DeviceNet network. The module acts as a DeviceNet slave interface and supports fast communication speeds, making it suitable also for high-end industrial devices.

Interchangeable with other networks

By implementing the CompactCom concept into your product line, you will have instant embedded access to any other industrial network by simply plugging in another Anybus module .

Proven and trusted

The M40 DeviceNet module handles data lengths up to 512 bytes in both directions and supports both modular device profiles and energy profiles on DeviceNet. The DeviceNet network implementation is made directly into the CompactCom network processor — the award-winning Anybus NP40. With its fast data transfer and very low latency, it's the perfect match for even the most demanding industrial applications.

Features and benefits

  • A complete, interchangeable DeviceNet plug-in module with connectors
  • ODVA pre-certified for network compliance (enables faster network certification)
  • Fast data transfer: Up to 512 bytes of process data in each direction
  • Very low latency
  • Event-based interface method enables easy access to input and output data at any time
  • Fast, event-based application hardware interfaces: 8/16-bit parallel and highspeed SPI. I/O (shift register interface) is also available
  • Solid security: Mandatory software signatures prevent unauthorized software to be downloaded to the module. Furthermore, encryption is used to prevent illicit copying
  • Short in-design with free assistance from Twincomm and HMS ensures a fast time to market
