New serial to EtherCAT gateway provides instant connectivity via
any serial interface!
HMS releases Anybus Communicator Serial Gateway supporting the EtherCAT industrial
Ethernet protocol.
The new EtherCAT gateway is the latest member of the Anybus Communicator family.
The new product connects automation devices via their serial RS-232/-422/-485
interface to EtherCAT. The Anybus Communicator family now supports 14 fieldbus and
industrial Ethernet networks providing external network connectivity to all kind of
automation devices. Typical applications include drives, weigh scales, sensors and
The Anybus Communicator for EtherCAT is an intelligent gateway. For the protocol
conversion between the serial interface of the automation device and the EtherCAT
network, HMS provides an easy to use configuration tool and no programming is
The Anybus Communicator Gateway for EtherCAT is an external DIN-rail mounted gateway which provides
EtherCAT network connectivity via a serial RS232/RS422/RS485 interface. It is provided through patented
Anybus technology and it implements CANopen over EtherCAT.
The gateway has serial protocol support for Modbus RTU Master Mode and Generic Data Mode which is
fully configurable through the HMS software ABC Config Tool and the configuration port on the Anybus
The EtherCAT interface acts as a full EtherCAT slave device. It supports CANopen objects with up to 512
byte I/O. The module has two RJ45 connectors using 100 Mbit full duplex Ethernet. For configuration a
XML-format device despription file is supplied by HMS.
The delivery comes complete with a DSUB connector with screw terminals for the serial sub-network, CD
with Configuration Software and User Manuals, RS232 Configuration Cable and a short Installation Leaflet
for the electrical installation.
