Item number ABC4091EX-A

The Anybus Communicator Ethernet to PROFIBUS DP device ATEX enables you to connect any Ethernet control system to any PROFIBUS DP control system. Anybus Communicators ensure reliable, secure, 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

  • Certified for hazardous locations

    The Communicator is certified for ATEX Zone 2 and UL hazardous location Class 1 Division 2.

  • High performance

    Powered by the award-winning NP40 network processor, it enables instant transfer of up to 1500 bytes (network dependent) between networks, totaling 3000 bytes.

  • Instant data transfer

    Instant data transfer lets you take advantage of high-speed industrial networks.

  • Endian conversion

    The Communicator provides hardware-accelerated endian conversion (byte swap), saving processing time on the PLC.

  • 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 and generate support packages.

  • Cybersecurity

    Despite advanced security, human error often causes breaches. Our Communicator’s physical security switch can lock configurations and block web interface access, enhancing security.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Life cycle management

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