Anybus CompactCom B40 Brick - PROFINET-IRT

The Anybus CompactCom B40 for PROFINET is a high-performance network interface in Brick format — ready-made with software and hardware to enable communication between your device and the PROFINET-RT or IRT 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, you can get connected to other B40 supported networks by simply switching to another Anybus Brick.

GET REAL-TIME PROFINET-IRT COMMUNICATION

The B40 Brick enables fast communication between your device and PROFINET. The Brick supports generic device profiles and comes with a dual port switch implemented in the 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.
