Anybus Linking Device, EtherNet/IP to Modbus-TCP (Model: HMS-EN2MB-R)
Minimize costs when connecting Modbus-TCP networks/devices to ControlLogix® or CompactLogix® controllers with an EtherNet/IP interface.
The EtherNet/IP to Modbus-TCP Linking Device allows you to connect any Modbus-TCP device or system to your ControlLogix™ and CompactLogix™ PLC from Rockwell Automation. The stand-alone Linking Device is less expensive than an in-chassis based solution, and has even better integration to Studio 5000® from Rockwell Automation.
Anybus Linking Device Introduction:
ANYBUS HMS-EN2MB-R Configuration Walkthrough:
With the arrival of 5G technology, the manufacturing industry faces its biggest transformation yet. Safer, flexible and more efficient manufacturing systems will be possible thanks to the ultra-low-latency and reliability of 5G connectivity.
This enables continued automation of robots and warehouse transportation as well as cutting cables for true flexibility. In this whitepaper we describe the benefits of 5G in the factory and the impact on smart manufacturing.
Bridge industrial Ethernet or serial cables over Bluetooth® or WLAN
The Anybus Wireless Bridge supports up to 400 meters of reliable wireless communication and can communicate via both Bluetooth or WLAN. It is ideal for replacing Ethernet cabling in hard-to-reach or hazardous locations.
