Give your devices access to Industrial Internet of Things

Enable communication between your industrial devices and the world of IIoT using OPC UA and MQTT.



Connect to IoT-software with OPC UA or MQTT

Anybus CompactCom IIoT Secure enable your industrial devices to communicate using OPC UA and MQTT. This means that industrial Ethernet protocol data (for example PROFINET or EtherNet/IP) is processed as usual by the CompactCom — and data from the device can also be sent to an IT system via OPC UA or MQTT. 


Anybus CompactCom IIoT Secure now also available with OPC UA Information model

The Anybus CompactCom IIoT Secure now also support the OPC UA Information model and related companion specification. This allows any information model to be incorporated into the Anybus CompacCom IIoT Secure module.

OPC UA on CompactCom

The Anybus CompactCom implements an OPC UA server which models the Anybus CompactCom as a device in its address space, using the OPC UA Device Integration (DI) model. The application will enable the OPC UA functionality where the ADIs (application parameters) are readable as variable nodes through OPC UA. The modelled device is of type CompactCom40DeviceType which is a subtype of the OPC UA DeviceType. 

  • Support for micro-embedded profile
  • Supports Discovery Services
  • User name and password authentication
  • Supports DataChange Subscription, 10 Subscriptions up to 100 monitored items
  • Write Access Enabled, the descriptor of the ADI defines the access level
  • Timestamp supported via discovery server or time protocol of the industrial network
  • OPC UA extension to all standard Anybus features
  • Available for PROFINET and EtherNet/IP

MQTT on CompactCom

The Anybus CompactCom acts as a publisher on the network using data from the host application. The data will be encoded using an encoding technology chosen by the host application before published, JSON or transparent encoding is supported. Data is tagged with a topic string that is used by the clients that would like to receive the data published by a device when subscribing for the data from the broker.

  • MQTT client acting as publisher
  • MQTT version 3.1.1 supported
  • MQTT over TLS, encrypted communication
  • Json data encoding with Time stamp supported
  • Transparent transfer supported
  • Last Will and QoS 0-2 supported
  • User name and password authentication
  • Maximum 32K data from host application (maximum 32K on network including Json encoding).
  • Available for PROFINET and EtherNet/IP
