Anybus CompactCom M40 Module - Common Ethernet

The Anybus CompactCom M40 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 M40 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.

Features and benefits

  • A complete, interchangeable communication module with connectors
  • Short in-design with free assistance from HMS ensures a fast time to market
  • Pre-certified for network compliance for all networks (enables faster network certification)
  • Fast data transfer: Up to 1500 bytes of process data in each direction, Up to 1500 bytes of explicit messaging
  • One hardware platform for all Ethernet versions. Simply download new firmware to enable communication with another network for example PROFINET or EtherNet/IP
  • Very low process data latency
  • 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.
  • IIoT ready: Includes Email Client, Web server with customizable content, SSI functionality and FTP server (network specific)
  • Extended flash-based file system with two-disc access (internal and external)
  • Transparent Socket Interface handling the complete Ethernet frame (support for 20 socket connections).
  • Solid security: Mandatory software signatures prevent unauthorized software to be downloaded to the module. Furthermore, encryption is used to prevent illicit copying.
