Anybus CompactCom B40 Brick - PROFIBUS

The Anybus CompactCom B40 for PROFIBUS is a high-performance network interface in Brick format — ready-made with software and hardware to enable communication between your device and the PROFIBUS 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 PROFIBUS Brick handles data lengths up to 488 bytes (244 bytes input and 244 output) and supports both PROFIBUS DP-V0 and DP-V1 according to IEC61158 type 3. The PROFIBUS network implementation is made directly into the CompactCom network processor — the award-winning Anybus NP40. With its fast data transfer and very low latency, it's the perfect match for even the most demanding industrial applications.
