Anybus Communicator – Serial Master to Modbus TCP slave

Item number ABC3028-A

The Anybus Communicator Serial Master to Modbus TCP enables you to connect any RS-232/485 device or equipment to Modbus TCP control systems. Anybus Communicators ensure reliable, secure, and high-speed data transfers between different industrial networks. Thanks to our intuitive web-based user interface, they're also incredibly easy to use.

Features and benefits

  • Intuitive user interface

    Use the intuitive web-based user interface to easily configure the Communicator via the drag-and-drop functionality or to analyze live data, export log files, and generate support packages.

  • Cybersecurity

    The secure boot protects against malware, while a security switch locks configurations to prevent unauthorized changes. Ports used in production are disabled to add another layer of security.

  • High performance

    Powered by the award-winning NP40 network processor and high-end components, the Communicator meets the constantly growing demand for more data to be transferred faster.

  • Optimized hardware design

    The Communicator has forward-facing ports and is designed for IP20 and DIN-rail mounting, enabling you to install it with ease, close to connected devices, thereby reducing wiring requirements.

  • Instant data transfer

    Instant data transfer lets you take advantage of high-speed industrial networks, as the Communicator provides hardware-accelerated endian conversion (byte swap), saving processing time on the PLC.

  • 5-year warranty

    Thanks to carefully selected industrial components the Communicator operates reliably in harsh environments, ensuring uptime and longevity. Our confidence in quality is reflected in a 5-year warranty.

  • Convert standard and proprietary serial protocols

    Convert standard serial protocols such as Modbus RTU and proprietary serial request/response or produce/consume-based protocols.

  • Instant diagnostics

    The user interface displays real-time connection status and I/O data mapping for easy troubleshooting. Easily generate a support file containing all the necessary information.

  • Brand Labeling

    Pre-configure the Communicator and customize the hardware and user interface with your colors and logos.

  • Life cycle management

    HMS maintains every part of the Communicator, including network updates, throughout the product’s lifecycle.
