Integrate your Modbus serial RS-232/422/485 based industrial devices and equipment to a LONWORKS control system without the need for any changes to the device. Just connect, configure and you're done!

The Anybus Communicator is a proven and trusted protocol converter gateway that connects non-networked industrial devices and equipment on a Modbus RTU network  to Lonworks.



The gateway makes it possible to convert Modbus registers data to LonWorks Variables (SNVT‟s and/or UNVT‟s). You can create a set of variables according to LonMark functional Profiles or you can create your own set of variables with User defined Network Variables (UNVT‟s). 

The Communicator is slave a on the Modbus RTU side. This means that you connect this to a Modbus network which has a Modbus RTU Master connected. The configuration requires no programming and is made by an included configuration tool in Windows environment. 

The Communicator is slim stand-alone gateway designed for IP20 and DIN-rail mounting, requiring a 24-volt power supply. The Communicator is conformance tested to current Lonworks specifications guaranteeing network compatibility.
