Access Anybus CompactCom 40 enabled devices to read device information and application data instances
This is a package including a Node-RED node to read module information and application data instances of an Anybus CompactCom 40 enabled device.
Run npm -g install compactcom-40-nodes
The node can be configured with an Anybus enabled device by name, an IP address and authentication data together with a comma separated list of application data instances to fetch from the device. Multiple instances of a node can share a single device configuration. If the node is not configured the IP address and application data instances list can also be set in the incoming message to the node. This allows the Node-RED flow to dynamically set the IP address and application data instances list during the execution of the flow. The node outputs a message with a key/value object including both module information and a list of the application data instances with information and data values.
Anybus modules from HMS are available for connection to industrial Ethernet protocols like Profinet, EtherNet/IP(TM), EtherCAT, and Modbus-TCP etc.
