HMS Industrial Networks' Anybus Communicator CAN

New gateway from HMS enables CAN-devices to connect to industrial networks

The Anybus Communicator CAN is a new protocol converter from HMS Industrial Networks. The gateway enables communication between any industrial device with a CAN interface and industrial networks such as Profibus, Profinet, DeviceNet, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT or CANopen. The Anybus Communicator CAN is designed to exchange data between a subnetwork, running CAN, and a higher level network (Fieldbus or Ethernet). This allows automation devices, even those with slower CAN communication, to be integrated into high-speed fieldbus/Ethernet networks without any restrictions to the upper network.
