The HMS Anybus Wireless Bolt enables you to connect industrial machines and devices to a wireless network. It is attached to a cabinet or a machine to enable wireless access to the network via Bluetooth®, Bluetooth Low Energy® or WLAN (WiFi).
On the wired side, the Anybus Wireless Bolt communicates over Industrial Ethernet, supporting protocols such as BACnet/IP, PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP as well as TCP/IP and UDP.
Anybus Wireless Bolt gives you direct access to configure or troubleshoot your machinery. With a range of 100 meters, you can access the internal web pages via a laptop, tablet or smartphone. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) means that you no longer need an expensive HMI. A machine operator or technician does not need to be physically located at the machine to gain access.
With Anybus Wireless Bolt you get an All-in-one package featuring connector, communication processor, and integrated antenna in the same unit, with an exterior IP67 protection class. Regardless of communication method you select, you have the same connector (2x9p Plug Connector) for both power and communication.
You can configure the Anybus Wireless Bolt simply by accessing the built-in web pages in the product. In addition, you can also send AT commands or use Easy Config modes
The Anybus Wireless Bolt is mounted into a 50.5 mm (M50) hole in the host device. The top “helmet” goes on the outside and provides an IP67 exterior. The bottom is located inside the machine or cabinet (IP21).
Connect a Wireless Bolt directly to a field application such as an AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle).
