Anybus Communicator CAN - PROFINET-IRT

Integrate your CAN-based industrial devices and equipment to a PROFINET-IRT control system without the need for any changes to the device. Just connect, configure and you're done!

The Anybus Communicator is a proven and trusted protocol converter gateway that connects non-industrial devices with a CAN-based protocol to PROFINET-IRT. The gateway performs an intelligent protocol conversion and presents the CAN data to the PLC/Controller as easily processed I/O data.

The Communicator is slim stand-alone gateway designed for IP20 and DIN-rail mounting, requiring a 24-volt power supply. The Communicator is conformance tested to current PROFINET-IRT specifications guaranteeing network compatibility. 

TYPICAL CAN APPLICATIONS

Typical CAN applications include variable frequency drives, sensors, actuators, human machine interfaces, barcode readers, RFID readers and industrial scales among others.
