External Gateway Solutions

Automation devices, that do not have an internal fieldbus or industrial Ethernet interface, can easily be connected to industrial networks via their serial RS-232/485 interface and the Anybus Communicator. The Anybus Communicator completely handles the conversion between the serial protocol of the automation device and the fieldbus or industrial Ethernet network.

See successful application examples from all over the automation industry:
