Anybus CompactCom 30/40-series, Modules without housing
As a compliment to the already widely used standard plug-in CompactCom communication modules with housing, HMS also offers the complete CompactCom range of interchangeable plug-in modules as open frame without housing. CompactCom open frame modules have exactly the same functionality as the modules with housing.
- Without the plastic housing, the CompactCom modules are even smaller so that they fit in smaller automation devices.
- HMS provides fastening kits for easy fastening of the modules on the carrier board.
- CompactCom open frame module is suitable for applications where device manufacturers want to integrate the CompactCom module during their manufacturing process in their production facilities.
- The Open frame module will be completely hidden from view behind the front cover of the automation device. Only the required network connectors will be visible.
IP-classification up to IP67
The open frame version - of variants with M12 connectors - makes it possible to design a product with a degree of protection up to IP67. This means that the product is completely sealed against dust and water that it can withstand, as long as the connection and sealing of the M12-connectors on the housing of the device is done in accordance with the appropriate guidelines.
An open-frame module can not be inserted into a slot Anybus but is fixedly mounted on the PCB. The CompactCom Mounting Kit is available to secure the CompactCom without housing module to the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) of the host automation device. The Mounting Kit is easy to assemble, and consists of two plastic holder and two screws. When assembled it secures the CompactCom module firmly onto the host application device.
