Anybus CompactCom B40

For both general or demanding high performance applications

The cutting-edge Anybus CompactCom 40-series is based on the award-winning Anybus NP40 network processor. It is especially suitable for both general purpose and for high-end applications with large I/O data transfer, fast network cycles and synchronization demands.

    • Combines major fieldbus networks with high performance real-time Industrial Ethernet
    • Common Ethernet brick allows you to download your chosen Ethernet protocol to the module
    • Fast data transfer: up to 1500 bytes of process data each way (latency 15µs)
    • Unique way of handling device profile integration (Drive, Motion, Semi, Others)
    • Safety-ready. Combine with the IXXAT SafeT100 for safety network integration
    • Uses network encryption technologies to keep your devices safe and secure

    Anybus CompactCom B40 Brick - Common Ethernet

    The Anybus CompactCom B40 for Common Ethernet enables fast communication
    between your device and several industrial Ethernet networks (PROFINET, EtherCAT,
    EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP, Powerlink and BACnet/IP). You use the same hardware for all networks and simply download the firmware needed for a specific network.

    GET REAL-TIME INDUSTRIAL ETHERNET COMMUNICATION

    The Anybus CompactCom B40 enables fast communication between your device and your chosen Ethernet network. The module 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.
