Connecting devices with a CAN interface

Connect your CAN devices to any major fieldbus or industrial Ethernet networks with the Anybus Communicator.  The Communicator performs an intelligent  conversion between the CAN protocol of the automation device and the chosen industrial network.

For industral devices with a CAN 2.0A or 2.0B port,  HMS makes it possible to configure almost any Produce/Consume, Request/Response  protocols with its flexible CAN  frame building method. No proprietary configuration software is needed. All necessary configuration is performed using the Anybus Configuration Manager that accompanies the gateway.

Anybus Communicator CAN is designed to exchange data between a subnetwork, running CAN, and a        higher level network ( Fieldbus/Ethernet).

Through the configuration of the CAN frames, the Communicator will adapt to a predefined CAN network.  It will be possible to send and receive data  from the subnetwork, but also to act as a relay for data on the CAN subnetwork.

Dual port Ethernet switch technology 
For most Ethernet versions of the Communicator CAN, HMS has included dual-port switch technology which enables daisy chaining and eliminates the need for external switches.
