What is Anybus?

Just as the name suggests, Anybus products enable industrial devices to communicate with any fieldbus or industial Ethernet network — wired or wirelessly. Anybus is manufactured and marketed by HMS Industrial Networks and is today the world's most widely used product family for industrial network connectivity.

Where is Anybus used?

Factory automation remains the main market for Anybus. Today, millions of robots, drives, sensors, HMIs, weight scales, etc. rely on Anybus communication.

As communication is becoming increasingly important in other areas such as buildings, vehicles, process plants and infrastructure, Anybus is venturing into new markets.

How Anybus works

Anybus products consist of electronic hardware and software which enable industrial devices to communicate.

Anybus can be embedded into an industrial device to provide network connectivity, or be used as a gateway which "translates" between devices and networks. There are also Anybus products for wireless communication.
