The AnyBus Communicator connects industrial devices via an RS-232/422/485 interface to all major industrial Fieldbus networks. No hardware, or software modification, nor extensive engineering work is needed. This new protocol converter enables instant connectivity to industrial networks such as PROFIBUS, DeviceNet, Ethernet or any of the other major industrial networks. The AnyBus Communicator is a small (approx. 4.75 inches× 3 inches× 1 inches), stand alone gateway that is DIN rail mountable.
