|EtherCAT Serial Gateway|
The Anybus® Communicator for EtherCAT allows the user to take almost any serial device and have it communicate to a EtherCAT network. The Anybus® Communicator for EtherCAT acts as a device slave on the network and presents the serial data to the master controller as easily processed I/O data.
The Anybus® Communicator supports RS232, RS422 and RS485 serial electrical formats without any change in hardware. This allows for connectivity to a broad range of serial devices. Typical serial applications include variable frequency drives, sensors, actuators, human machine interfaces, barcode readers, RFID readers and industrial scales among others.
No high level programming skills are needed to set up the Anybus® Communicator as configuration is accomplished using the free, easy to use Windows™ based ACM (Anybus Configuration Manager). The ACM can be used to configure serial master protocols such as Modbus or other query-response based protocols. Configuring a Modbus application is as simple as running the embedded Modbus Wizard in the ACM. The Anybus® Communicator can also be easily configured to consume or produce dynamic serial data strings.
With a broad range of devices supported, the Anybus® Communicator for EtherCAT provides the user with one of the most comprehensive solutions for solving EtherCAT to serial connectivity. In order to optimize the user experience, HMS provides free worldwide technical support for all of its products.
