With the "Anybus" technology HMS enables users to quickly and easily create multiprotocol interfaces for fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet that are practical even in small quantities. Now the manufacturer integrates Powerlink into its modules. The first compatible product to be introduced is "Anybus Compact Com".
With Anybus, HMS Industrial Networks AB has launched a network card that connects any device to virtually any network. Today, the technology comprises a considerable range of modules for insertion or complete integration into automation devices.
More than 900 different product types from different device manufacturers are equipped with Anybus. In industrial automation applications, especially in high performance machines, the manufacturer sees a growing need for network technology that combines high reliability with fast data transfer.
