Embedded solutions Connect your products to any industrial network and expand your market. GLOBAL CONNECTIVITY: A KEY TO SUCCESS IN TODAY’S INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS CLIMATE Your challenges In the world of industrial automation, there are many different networks available. If you want to grow your business and reach new markets, you need to make your products compatible with the dominant networks in these markets. What customers say: “Connectivity is not our core competence, we leave this to HMS” As a manufacturer of industrial devices, your job is to build the best products possible — not to keep up with industrial networks. Developing connectivity for one or more industrial networks in-house will require resources and time which could have been spent on your core business. But developing and maintaining network connectivity is both time-consuming and resourcedemanding... No network fits all The choice of industrial network depends on several things. One deciding factor is geographical location as different PLC manufacturers have different home turfs. Networks also vary according to the physical network requirements of different industries. Factory automation, building automation, the automotive industry, infrastructure and renewable energy are examples of different industry segments with different preferred networks. On top of that you have the co-existence of fieldbus networks and the newer industrial Ethernet standards. In short, there are a lot of networks on the market and no consolidation is in sight. So how do you make your products compatible with r ou ll e y ith a k a w ? u m le s yo atib ork o p w d t w com t ne ho s n So duct ere iff o r d p se the Embedded One development project gives you access to all networks PLUG IN — GET CONNECTED! During the development project, you design the Anybus module into your product. You implement the Anybus driver in your processor which enables your product to exchange data with the Anybus module. Your product can now participate on the chosen network. Embed an Anybus module into your device and access any network It doesn’t matter if you manufacture robots, drives, weight scales, barcode scanners or any other industrial device. Once you have implemented the Anybus module, your device has full network interchangeability. Simply plug in another Anybus module to offer your product to any market or business segment. Anybus modules will seamlessly integrate into your device and enable you to connect to over 20 different industrial networks. Anybus users estimate that they have saved up to 70 % of the development costs compared to in-house development. You choose the solution that meets your demands regarding size, physical interfaces, performance, power consumption, interchangeability and so on. You will get • Global connectivity which will open up new markets for your product. • A faster ROI and shorter time to market. “ Why Anybus? By choosing Anybus, you make sure that you have the rest assured that you get a fast and easy design latest industrial connectivity technology inside your project, and that there is proven technology product.

The consistency of their range of product is unique. Thus, our engineering costs are reduced. We have the same kind of product for all different fieldbuses,” says David Greensmith, Product manager, Baldor Motors & Drives UK Ltd. Anybus CompactCom is a range of plug-in communication modules designed for integration into industrial automation devices. CompactCom stands for modularity and interchangeability. This means that once you have implemented the Anybus CompactCom concept, you can just plug in any CompactCom module to get access to the required networks. The modules come in two standard versions, one with housing and one without housing. The robust plastic housing completely covers the electronics and allows for easy handling. Typical applications Anybus CompactCom has been designed to fit into many types of industrial automation devices. HMIs, robot controllers, drives, micro PLC’s, valve terminals, instruments, weight scales, temperature controllers, barcode scanners, I/O blocks, welding controllers, and RFID applications are just some of the automation devices that are using Anybus CompactCom today. Anybus CompactCom Cutting edge technology that plugs into your product “ User case: Control valves VAT Vakuumventile AG in Switzerland had to find a solution to implement CC-Link on their control valves and studied the different offers on the market: “We chose HMS because of the amount of supported fieldbuses, the ability to provide a CC-Link module as a standard product and finally the size of the company which offers us guarantees,” explains Thomas Grebenz at VAT. “It also is very easy to add new fieldbus compatibility to our control valves. With the Anybus CompactCom, we get access to other networks too, which means our pressure controllers have worldwide communication connectivity capabilities.” Why Anybus CompactCom? Quick implementation for many networks, small size This creates total transparency when it comes and competitive pricing make Anybus CompactCom the to the data exchange between the network and obvious first choice for network connectivity. the device. Anybus CompactCom meets the requirements of the Use this module if you want to leverage on the demanding Japanese market which requires a high level latest technology advancements. of functionality and quality. CompactCom’s unique generic interface knits together I/O, parameters, and diagnostics functionality. Katsuyoshi Mineji Manager, HMS Japan “ THE EASIEST WAY TO GET CONNECTIVITY TO ANY NETWORK Baldor Motors & Drives UK Ltd has upgraded its range of smart drives with Anybus. This range is now able to communicate with any PLC, it is much more open to communication standards and its communication interfaces are consistent throughout the entire range. - IC User case: Traffic automation IDEAL IF YOU HAVE LIMITED SPACE OR WANT TO DESIGN THE PHYSICAL CONNECTOR INTERFACES YOURSELF Time to market is very important for Scandisign AS in Norway. So when the need for a sign with Profibus communication came up, Scandisign had to find a solution quickly. The final products were to be used in “Festningstunnelen,” an underground tunnel in central Oslo. Scandisign initiated a cooperation with HMS’s distributor AD Elektronikk. As they had used the Anybus-IC technology in previous projects they could quickly develop and design a solution including a regulator, a switch and a microcontroller. More than 500 circuit boards with Anybus-IC are used in the tunnel today. Two for one A few months later Scandisign AS had a new requirement from their customer: They now needed connectivity over Modbus TCP instead of Profibus. Scandisign could now fully appreciate the flexibility of the Anybus solution. Within a few weeks they were up and running with the new connectivity. When size matters “Projects would be lost if it wasn’t for the Anybus technology” says Håkon Sahlsten, Managing Director at Scandisign AS. Anybus-ICs are small connectivity modules with a size of only 9 cm². This connectivity solution is designed for integration into small-sized devices with limited space for the communication interface. The flexible Anybus-IC can be used with various network connectors such as M12 or screw terminals which makes it an ideal solution for devices that are used in harsh industrial environments. Anybus IC The Anybus concept with HMS’s own network processor enables Anybus-IC to contain all the digital and analog components needed to communicate with the chosen network. This also gives Anybus-IC a very low power consumption and wide temperature range. “ Why Anybus-IC? “ The Modbus-based application interface is easy to use and ensures a simple and fast development project. As an alternative, the Anybus-IC can be used in stand-alone mode without the need for a host microprocessor. This is your choice if you have limited space, require a very simple integration or need to use special network connectors — Typical applications Less demanding applications where size is important or where there is a need for special network connectors such as M12. for example M12 connectors to achieve IP65 rating.
