HMS delivers the 3,000,000th Anybus module to Bosch Rexroth

by Linda Johansson | Dec 09, 2014

HMS Industrial Networks has shipped its three millionth Anybus module to Bosch Rexroth. Bosch Rexroth uses Anybus modules mainly to connect welding and tightening controllers to the various control systems used in automation technology.

Anybus embedded products are interchangeable communication modules for different fieldbus and industrial Ethernet networks. The modules offer multi-network connectivity for the major network standards.

Compact and energy efficient
Bosch Rexroth uses the Anybus CompactCom communication modules which consume little power and is very compact (5.2 cm x 5.2 cm). The communication modules provide very reliable multi-network connectivity for the major standards on the market today. The standardized hardware and software interfaces allow the modules to be easily interchangeable with each other. In other words, you can connect to any network by simply replacing the module.

Long collaboration between Bosch Rexroth and HMS
Bosch Rexroth and HMS have been working together successfully for more than 10 years. "We have chosen Anybus for two reasons: Firstly, it is very compact and easy to integrate and secondly, because of the technology inside the module", says Harald Lukosz, Director Engineering Tightening and Welding Systems at Bosch Rexroth.

"The Anybus communication modules have support for all the major fieldbuses and industrial Ethernet networks that Bosch Rexroth requires in their welding and tightening controllers and enables them to connect to the various control systems used in automation technology",  says Staffan Dahlström, CEO of HMS Networks AB.

The history of Anybus
The first Anybus module was developed in 1994. As the number of fieldbuses increased rapidly in those days, the Anybus concept allowing users to access almost any industrial network, was a ground-breaking innovation. Today, three million Anybus modules are deployed in the field. The multi-network capability offered by the Anybus concept is still the key benefit to the user.

“The first million Anybus modules took us more than 10 years to deliver,” says Staffan Dahlström. “However, the second million only took five years and the third million only two more years. With that said, we should probably not have to wait long for the fifth millionth Anybus module,” he concludes.
