Anybus CompactCom B40 Brick - CC-Link

The Anybus CompactCom B40 for CC-Link is a high-performance network interface in Brick format — ready-made with software and hardware to enable communication between your device and the CC-Link network.

ADD YOUR OWN CONNECTORS AND PERIPHERALS

The B40 Brick gives you the flexibility to add your own connectors and network isolation. An alternative is to use the ready-made connector board from HMS. The B40 Brick is ideal for device manufacturers who are looking for a semi-integrated solution where connector flexibility, size and cost are key elements.

ONE IN-DESIGN – ACCESS ALL NETWORKS

By implementing the B40 Brick into your product line, by simply switching to another brick and connector board, you can get connected to other B40 supported networks.

PROVEN AND TRUSTED

The B40 CC-Link Brick handles data lengths up to 896 bit points and 128 word points of 16 bit data and supports both CC-Link v1.10 and v2.00. The CC-link network implementation is made directly into the CompactCom network processor — the award-winning Anybus NP40, with its fast data transfer and very low latency, making it the perfect match for even the most demanding industrial applications.
