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 - DeviceNet

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


    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.


    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.


    The B40 DeviceNet Brick handles data lengths up to 512 bytes in both directions and supports both modular device profiles and energy profiles on DeviceNet. The DeviceNet 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.
