1st generation of the Anybus CompactCom. This proven technology is ideal if you need to complement your CompactCom 40-series module design with extended fieldbus connectivity.
The solutions within the Anybus CompactCom 30-series all contain 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.
For general purpose industrial devices
The Anybus CompactCom 30-series concept was introduced 2005 and is based on the NP30 processor from HMS. The concept support various fieldbuses and industrial Ethernet networks. The CompactCom 30-series fieldbus and industrial Ethernet solutions offer a good level of performance of today and is used by many customers. Though, during the years the different networks have evolved and especially the industrial Ethernet networks becomes more and more demanding.
During 2013 HMS introduced the new CompactCom 40-series with the goal to present a real high performance solution with very low latency, extended APIs and the performance to meet also the future demands of industrial networking. The CompactCom 40-series also support the same APIs as the 30-series, offering a possibility to enable present CompactCom 30 customers an upgrade to the latest technology.
For new designs the CompactCom 40-series will be the platform for communication, though the compatibility between the two series and that the CompactCom Host application example code from HMS will enable usage of both series in a design gives customers using Anybus CompactCom access to all fieldbuses and Industrial networks covered with both series.
Although fully available and supported by HMS with network updates and maintenance, HMS recommends the new CompactCom 40-series for new in-designs, especially for Ethernet versions.
