Anybus Communicator IIoT - MQTT-OPC UA

Integrate your serial RS-232/422/485 based industrial devices and equipment to an OPC UA or MQTT monitoring system without the need for any changes to the device. Just connect, configure and you're done!

The Anybus Communicator IIoT is a proven and trusted protocol converter gateway that connects non-networked industrial devices and equipment to IIoT systems. The gateway performs an intelligent protocol conversion and presents the serial data as OPC UA or MQTT tagged IIoT data.

The Communicator is slim stand-alone gateway designed for IP20 and DIN-rail mounting, requiring a 24-volt power supply. 

CONVERT ALMOST ANY TYPE OF SERIAL PROTOCOL

The Communicator is capable of converting almost any type of serial protocol such as Modbus RTU, ASCII, DF1 or any other type of proprietary Query/Response or Produce/Consume protocol.

TYPICAL SERIAL APPLICATIONS

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