Embeded communication module

New embedded communication module reduces development efforts by up to 70%, speeds up time-to-market and minimizes development risk.

HMS Industrial Networks has a new embedded communication module for CompoNet as the latest member of the Anybus CompactCom (Anybus-CC) product family. With the release of the CompoNet module, HMS completes its offer for CIP™ (Common Industrial Protocol) supported networks.

The new module provides device manufacturers with a fast and easy way to connect their automation devices to CompoNet™. The ready-made solution reduces development efforts by up to 70%, speeds up time-to-market and minimizes development risk. Anybus-CC is a family of interchangeable plug-in communication modules supporting 18 different fieldbus and industrial Ethernet technologies. All modules come in a secure housing about the size of a compact flash card. The core of the module is HMS´s NP30 microprocessor. The hardware and software application interface of the Anybus-CC module for CompoNet™ functions in the same manner as all other Anybus-CC modules, therefore, the new module is fully interchangeable with all other active Anybus-CC modules.

CompoNet™ provides users with a bit-level network to control small, high speed machines and CIP™ network services to connect to the plant and the enterprise. As a member of the CIP Networks (DeviceNet™, ControlNet™ and EtherNet/IP™) family, CompoNet fulfills the requirements of applications using large numbers of simple sensors and actuators by providing high speed communication with configuration tools and combining this with efficient construction, simple set-up and high availability – all on a single network.
