HMS Industrial Networks has introduced Anybus Wireless Bolt which makes machines communicate wirelessly.
The Anybus Wireless Bolt is a wireless access point designed to be mounted on a machine or cabinet to give it wireless access via WLAN, Bluetooth or Bluetooth Low Energy. The wireless access makes it possible to do configuration via a regular tablet or smartphone or connect to a cloud service, realizing Industrial IoT.
Giving a robust wireless interface, the Anybus Wireless Bolt is mounted onto a machine or cabinet just like a bolt is. You can take your smartphone or tablet to a machine and use it as an HMI, typically used for configuration purposes. Another typical use for the Anybus Wireless Bolt is connecting a machine to a cloud service.
Anybus Wireless Bolt can communicate wirelessly up to 100m via WLAN, Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy. It can also communicate with devices on serial (RS232/485), CAN or Ethernet on the wired side. Wireless or wired, it has the same 2x9p Plug Connector.
Anybus Wireless Bolt is available in 3 different versions depending on your communication preferences. Whether you want to use Anybus Wireless Bolt, Anybus Wireless Bolt – CAN and Ethernet or Anybus Wireless Bolt – Serial RS-232/485 and Ethernet take a look at the attached datasheet.
