Replace Industrial Ethernet with Industrial Wireless
Eliminate industrial Ethernet cables by securely bridging over Bluetooth or WLAN. Ideal in hard-to-reach or hazardous locations.
Anybus® Wireless Bridge™
Bridge industrial Ethernet or serial cables over Bluetooth® or WLAN
The Anybus Wireless Bridge supports up to 400 meters of reliable wireless communication and can communicate via both Bluetooth or WLAN. It is ideal for replacing Ethernet cabling in hard-to-reach or hazardous locations.
Cable replacement or access point
By using the Anybus Wireless Bridge II, automation engineers can achieve new and smarter network infrastructures.
Often used as an Ethernet cable replacement (point-to-point communication), the Wireless Bridge can also be used as an access point for several WLAN/Bluetooth nodes such as smartphones or tablets within range. In the process, savings are achieved thanks to the reduced amount of Ethernet cabling.
Support for Industrial Ethernet protocols
Use the Anybus Wireless Bridge to create a wireless connection in a PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, Modbus-TCP or BACnet/IP network. You can use the same hardware for both Bluetooth or WLAN communication.
There is also a separate version making it possible to bridge serial RS-232/422/485 communication over Bluetooth.
Bridge and Bolt together
Anybus Wireless Bridge and Anybus Wireless Bolt, a connection point for on-machine mounting, share the same technology making them able to communicate seamlessly, opening up for even more innovative wireless system solutions.
