Anybus CompactCom M40 Module - CANopen

The Anybus CompactCom M40 for CANopen is a complete communication module which enables your products to communicate on an CANopen network. The module contains the complete functionality of industrial network slave/adapter interfaces and integrate through a standardized and network independent parallel or serial application interface towards the host automation device.


By implementing the CompactCom concept into your product line,you will have instant access to any other industrial network by simply plugging in another Anybus module.


The Anybus CompactCom M40 enables fast communication between your device and the CANopen network. With its fast data transfer and very low latency, it's the perfect match for even the most demanding industrial applications.

Anybus CompactCom M30 CANopen

Features and benefits

  • A complete, interchangeable communication module with connectors
  • Short in-design with free assistance from HMS ensures a fast time to market
  • CiA pre-certified for network compliance (enables faster network certification)
  • Fast data transfer: Up to 512 bytes of process data in each direction, Up to 1524 bytes of acyclic data.
  • Event-based interface method enables easy access to input and output data at any time
  • Fast, event-based application hardware interfaces: 8/16-bit parallel and highspeed SPI. I/O (shift register interface) is also available.
  • Solid security: Mandatory software signatures prevent unauthorized software to be downloaded to the module. Furthermore, encryption is used to prevent illicit copying.
