New Any­bus Com­pactCom for CC-Link IE Field

HMS In­dus­trial Net­works

now ex­tends t he Any­bus Com­pactCom 40- se­ries f am­ily with a new ver­sion which en­ables any au­toma­tion de­vice to com­mu­ni­cate on CC- Link I E Field. This means t hat HMS now of f ers both em­bed­ded and s t and- alone gate­way so­lu­tions f or any CC- Link- re­lated com­mu­ni­ca­tion i s sue, i nclud­ing CC- Link I E Field.

Any­bus Com­pactCom is a range of em­bed­ded com­mu­ni­ca­tion in­ter­faces which pro­vides au­toma­tion de­vices with con­nec­tiv­ity to any in­dus­trial net­work – field­buses as well as in­dus­trial Eth­er­net. HMS now ex­pands the Any­bus Com­pactCom 40-se­ries to in­clude con­nec­tiv­ity to the gi­ga­bit CC-Link IE Field net­work.

AVAIL­ABLE I N TWO CER­TI­FIED FORM FAC­TORS

Fully cer­ti­fied by the CC-Link user or­gan­i­sa­tion (CLPA), the Any­bus Com­pactCom 40-se­ries of­fers CC-Link IE Field con­nec­tiv­ity in two for­mats: • Mod­ule for­mat, which en­ables in­stant con­nec­tiv­ity for ex­ist­ing Com­pactCom users by sim­ply plug­ging in the CC-Link IE Field mod­ule. • Brick for­mat, ideal for users who have lim­ited space or want to add their own choice of net­work con­nec­tors.

FAST COM­MU­NI­CA­TION WITH CC- LI NK I E FI ELD

Com­pactCom is de­signed to be em­bed­ded into a host au­toma­tion de­vice to en­able fast com­mu­ni­ca­tion with any in­dus­trial net­work. De­sign­ing in the Any­bus Com­pactCom into an au­toma­tion de­vice is quick thanks to the ac­com­pa­ny­ing ex­am­ple driver code and con­fig­u­ra­tion file (CSP+) pro­vided by HMS.

De­signed for slave com­mu­ni­ca­tion on CC-Link IE Field net­works, Any­bus Com­pactCom can han­dle up to 1536 bytes of process data in each di­rec­tion mak­ing it suit­able for most slave de­vices. The mod­ule sup­ports generic de­vice pro­files and comes with a dual port switch im­ple­mented in HMS’ award-win­ning net­work pro­ces­sor – Any­bus NP40.

AC­CESS TO ALL I NDUS­TRIAL NET­WORKS

By im­ple­ment­ing the Any­bus Com­pactCom con­cept, users get ac­cess to all ma­jor in­dus­trial net­works, now in­clud­ing CC-Link IE Field. Since Any­bus Com­pactCom prod­ucts are in­ter­change­able from a hard­ware and soft­ware point of view, users can con­nect to any net­work by sim­ply se­lect­ing the Com­pactCom of choice. Avail­able net­works in the 40-se­ries are: PROFINET, Eth­er­Net/IP, EtherCAT, Mod­bus TCP, Pow­er­link, PROFIBUS, De­viceNet and CC-Link. Ten other net­works are also avail­able through the Any­bus Com­pactCom 30-se­ries.

COM­PLET­ING THE ANY­BUS OF­FER­ING FOR CC- LI NK- BASED NET­WORKS

With the new Any­bus Com­pactCom for CC-Link IE Field, HMS fur­ther strength­ens the of­fer­ing to­wards au­toma­tion de­vice man­u­fac­tur­ers in gen­eral, and for those wish­ing to con­nect to CC-Link net­works in par­tic­u­lar,” com­ments Leif Malm­berg, Prod­uct Man­ager at HMS. “We see CC-Link IE Field as one of the grow­ing Eth­er­net net­works in the fu­ture and we al­ready have sev­eral other con­nec­tiv­ity so­lu­tions in place for both CC-Link and CC-Link IE Field, en­abling com­mu­ni­ca­tion with, for ex­am­ple, Mit­subishi PLCs.”

HMS now of­fers both em­bed­ded and stand-alone gate­way so­lu­tions for any CC-Link-re­lated com­mu­ni­ca­tion is­sue. Apart from the new Com­pactCom for CC-Link IE Field, HMS also of­fers: • Stand-alone Any­bus Com­mu­ni­ca­tor gate­ways for con­nect­ing any se­rial de­vice to both CC-Link and CC-Link IE-Field. • Any­bus X-gate­ways for con­nect­ing CC-Link and CC-Link IE Field to 11 other in­dus­trial net­works. • CC-Link con­nec­tiv­ity in the Any­bus
