Connect a non-networked device to a PLC control system (via its serial or CAN interface)
Embed multi-network capability into a new product range series
Integrate existing devices into a PLC control system (Fieldbus or Industrial Ethernet)
Keep a well-performing, non-networked device e.g. a bar-code scanner, by connecting it to a PLC control system using its serial RS-232/422/485 or CAN-based interface. No need for any hardware or software changes.
Anybus® Communicator™ connects to the devices RS-232/422/485 interface and translates the serial or CAN data stream into a fieldbus or industrial Ethernet protocol. The device will then be represented as a Slave/Adapter on the PLC control network.
