There exists an almost bewildering choice of connectivity options for electronics engineers and application developers working on products and systems for the Internet of Things (IoT). Many communication technologies are well known such as WiFi, Bluetooth, ZigBee and 2G/3G/4G cellular, but there are also several new emerging networking options such as Thread as an alternative for home automation applications, and Whitespace TV technologies being implemented in major cities for wider area IoT-based use cases. Depending on the application, factors such as range, data requirements, security and power demands and battery life will dictate the choice of one or some form of combination of technologies. HMS manufactures and markets industrial communication products under the following brands: Anybus, IXXAT and eWON. Anybus Solutions offers embedded network cards and stand-alone gateways which connect different industrial devices to industrial networks. IXXAT Solutions provides connectivity solutions especially for CAN, automotive and test systems while eWON Remote Solutions specialize in remote access, monitoring and management of field devices over the web.

Making Straddle Carriers Talk
Making Straddle Carriers Talk
To enable the office to keep track of the straddle carriers' status, APM wanted to install a wireless system which would enable communication between the straddle carriers and the central office. The problem was that the carriers use a CAN-based bus internally which could not communicate with the Modbus-TCP-based monitoring system that was to send the data to the office.
Paper Slitting Machine
Paper Slitting Machine
The round slitter blades that cut the paper in JSI’s machines are extremely sharp and can be dangerous to handle manually. Therefore, JSI and Millennium Controls designed a robotic blade-changing system using a robotic arm from Fanuc Robotics. The robot changes the sharp blades automatically, without operators having to touch them. But even if the blades can be changed automatically, operators still have to go up to the HMI of the machine which put them in close vicinity to the sharp blades. Therefore, JSI and Millennium Controls looked for a way to access the machine from a distance.

Communicator - Protocol Converter Gateway
Communicator - Protocol Converter Gateway
The Anybus Communicator CAN series makes it possible to integrate devices with a CAN port to all popular fieldbus and industrial Ethernet networks without the need for any hardware or software changes to your device. Industrial devices with CAN based protocols can be easily integrated into popular networks such as PROFIBUS, DeviceNet, Modbus-RTU, ControlNet, PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT and Modbus-TCP.All data between the fieldbus and the CAN network is transferred through an internal memory buffer inside the Communicator. This method of data exchange also permits CAN devices with slow communication to be integrated into high-speed fieldbus/Ethernet networks without any restrictions. The Communicator appears as a standard I/O module on the fieldbus/Ethernet side.
