The cutting-edge Anybus CompactCom 40-series is based on the award-winning Anybus NP40 network processor. It is especially suitable for both general purpose and for high-end applications with large I/O data transfer, fast network cycles and synchronization demands.
The Anybus CompactCom M40 EtherNet/IP IIoT Secure is a communication module that provides industrial devices with instant EtherNet/IP connectivity. The module is conformance tested and communicates with the host device via the patented Anybus CompactCom host interface. Any device that supports this standard can take advantage of the features provided by the module, allowing seamless network integration regardless of network type. The module supports both linear and ring network topology and is a ready-made security solution which enables network-secure and encrypted communication. The module is also able to communicate with IoT protocols such as OPC UA and MQTT. This means that the EtherNet/IP data is processed as usual by the CompactCom - and data from the device can also be sent to an IT system via OPC UA or MQTT

The Anybus CompactCom M40 EtherNet/IP IIoT Secure module is a ready-made security solution which enables network-secure, encrypted communication on OPC UA Secure channels, and Secure MQTT communication. It also enables secure access to the embedded web server and secure file transfer.
In order to secure the network communication over TLS, the device is equipped with a security chip providing secure key storage together with a hardware-accelerated cryptographic engine.
The embedded web server includes web pages for security configuration such as certificate installation and user account management.
The Anybus CompactCom 40 IIoT Secure Brick provides network security features such as
Certificates are a main component in secure communication. They are used to identify the owner of the certificate. A node will trust a certificate if it trusts the Certificate Authority (CA) that has issued the certificate. Trusted certificates are used to ensure secure communication.
Which certificates to use, depend on the installation. HMS Networks offers a tool that generates device and CA certificates, to be used during development.
