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.

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.

TimeControl is available both for subscription in the cloud or for purchase for an on premise installation.GroupingAll TimeControl list views are now group-able using new Options screens. Users can select visible fields and multiple levels of database grouping to make their own hierarchies of data. This helps organize data very quickly into formats that are familiar to the user and easy to navigateAdvanced FiltersTimeControl’s Filter functionality is used everywhere in TimeControl. You’ll find filters in the configuration of who can access what data, how reporting works or how Validation Rules work. While TimeControl’s filter functionality is infinitely flexible by allowing direct database controls, the introduction of Advanced Filtering allows much more complex filters to be created within the Interface itself, giving much more control to Administrators in how filters and business validation rules are created.Time-off Bank AuditingTimeControl supports multiple banks of time for each employee. Vacation, Personal Time or Sick Leave are common categories but banks of time can also be used for tracking training, premiums, or other time.
