HMS Industrial Networks’ Anybus Wireless Bridge series is designed to replace Ethernet cabling with a Bluetooth or WLAN connection. The series has been expanded to include industrial Ethernet over WLAN (point-to-point), industrial Ethernet over Bluetooth (point-to-point or multi-point), and serial over Bluetooth (point-to-point or multi-point). The wireless bridges are designed to make connections easier for system integrators and automation engineers who need to connect in hazardous areas, hard-to-reach locations, or installations where cables are not desirable. They can bridge industrial Ethernet standards such as Profinet, EtherNet/IP, BACnet/IP, and Modbus TCP as well as serial networks. They also provide users with a maintenance-free wireless connection. Depending on architectural needs, the Anybus Wireless Bridges can be used for point-to-point cable replacement as well as for connecting several wireless nodes.
