Free Anybus Communicator Training
The Anybus Communicator is a gateway that connects automation devices via their serial interface to fieldbus and industrial Ethernet. It is optimized for automation devices with a Modbus – RTU interface, but has the flexibility to do so much more.
IDX offers training for Anybus Communicators free of charge. The content that is covered during the course includes:
- Product overview
- Programming the Anybus Communicator – setup and configure the Anybus Communicator
- Basic operations – How the Anybus Communicator functions.
- Modbus Overview
- What is Modbus
- Physical transmission medium – RS232 / RS485 / RS422
- Modbus transactions
- Communicator Configuration
- Configuring an ABC – e.g. How to read holding registers.
- Configuring Example
- Practical Tutorial
- Users get to setup and configure the Anybus Communicator
The most challenging stage of setting up and Anybus Communicator is getting the information required from the serial device to the Anybus communicator. Reading the information from the fieldbus (PROFIBUS, DeviceNet, ControlNet, Ethernet/IP...) is usually a simple task of reading the correct registers (memory areas). The course focuses on setting up the sub-network side of the Anybus Communicator. The aim is to skill up users of the Anybus Communicator so that they can effectively use the it for their specific applications.
All scheduled courses are free and participants are encouraged to bring their equipment that they would like to familiarise themselves with. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance once the course has been completed.
