Anybus CompactCom M40 Module - EtherCAT

The Anybus CompactCom M40 for EtherCAT is a complete communication module which enables your products to communicate on an EtherCAT network. The module supports fast communication speeds, making it suitable also for high-end industrial devices.

INTERCHANGEABLE WITH OTHER NETWORKS

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.

GET REAL-TIME ETHERCAT COMMUNICATION

The Anybus CompactCom M40 enables fast communication between your device and the EtherCAT network. The module supports generic device profiles and black channel for FSOE implementation. It also 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
  • ETG pre-certified for network compliance (enables faster network certification)
  • EtherCAT Semiconductor device profile support
  • Fast data transfer: Up to 1486 bytes of process data in each direction, Up to 1500 bytes of explicit messaging
  • Very low latency <15µs.
  • 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.
  • Black channel support enables Functional Safety over EtherCAT (FSOE) implementation
