Anybus Communicator CAN - EtherCAT

Integrate your CAN-based industrial devices and equipment to a EtherCAT control system without the need for any changes to the device. Just connect, configure and you're done!

The Anybus Communicator is a proven and trusted protocol converter gateway that connects non- industrial devices with a CAN-based protocol to EtherCAT. The gateway performs an intelligent protocol conversion and presents the CAN data to the PLC/Controller as easily processed I/O data.

The Communicator is slim stand-alone gateway designed for IP20 and DIN-rail mounting, requiring a 24-volt power supply. The Communicator is conformance tested to current EtherCAT specifications guaranteeing network compatibility. 

TYPICAL CAN APPLICATIONS

Typical CAN applications include variable frequency drives, sensors, actuators, human machine interfaces, barcode readers, RFID readers and industrial scales among others.
