Start immediately with Anybus CompacCom


Anybus-CompactCom is a very flexible communication solution. The modules contain the complete functionality of an industrial network interface and provides a standardized and network independent parallel or serial application interface for the host automation device.

Anybus CompactCom 40 series is an evolution of the 30 series, focusing on higher performance, faster interfacing and even higher flexibility. The 30 series is upwards compatible with the 40 series. Migration of modules M30 to M40 modules is possible.

Anybus CompactCom 40-serie Technology

Supported network features
CompactCom 40 series incorporates the latest protocol specification of the chosen network. HMS continuously maintains the network functionality so that your automation device always complies to the latest standards and has unlimited interoperability. All CompactCom modules are pre-certified for full network compliance with the chosen network. The network functionality includes cyclic I/O data, acyclic parameters, network, status and diagnostic information, alarm messaging and device identification. Through the host application interface the CompactCom functionality can be tailored to the communication requirements of the automation device, which allows for a high level of functional integration.

Anybus NP40 network processor

The high performance of the CompactCom 40 series is powerd by the new Anybus NP40 network processor. This is a flash-based, single-chip network processor based on ARM® Cortex ™ high-performance M3-core and FPGA structure. The FPGA-stucture is used to implement the different network interfaces directly in hardware, while the ARM core processes the protocol and application stack.

For certain powerful networks, it is possible to by-pass the ARM core, to obtain an almost immediate data transfer. The NP40 therefore enables a direct communication between the network and the host APIs resulting in a practically "zero-data delay" in demanding applications. This is a unique feature for the new NP40.
The flash based technology also provides a very low power consumption and power dissipation

IT-functions for Ethernet-versions

The CompactCom Ethernet versions contain embedded IT functions such as, an embedded dynamic web server, Telnet server, FTP server and an Email client.

Together, these IT functions allow for example, that data can be monitored via the built in web server, or using event triggered Email messages. SSI technology enables web pages and Email messages to carry dynamic content such as I/O data, configuration, and settings and then visualizing in a user friendly way.

The IT functions also include a TCP/UDP/IP socket interface. This allows applications to execute any kind of vendor specific TCP/IP based protocols using the core functionality of the Anybus-CC.
