The Anybus CompactCom 40-series from HMS provides industrial devices with multi-network connectivity with a specific focus on industrial Ethernet. It is especially suitable for high-end industrial applications with high performance demands and is available in chip, brick and module formats. The 40-series solution for PROFINET enables very fast communication between the host device and PROFINET (process data latency is less than 15?s through the module) and supports PROFINET RT Class 1 and 3. It comes with an integrated PROFINET IRT Ethernet switch and supports PROFINET functions such as MRP (Media Redundancy Protocol), Clock-Synchronous Operation, Fast Start Up and PROFIenergy. CompactCom is also equipped with a black channel interface enabling PROFIsafe communication. When used in combination with the IXXAT Safe T100 safety module, the company can therefore offer a complete communication solution for functional safety.
