Use cases for the Anybus Wireless Bolt from HMS Industrial Networks vary from warehouse installations and AGVs to manufacturing of food, underground mining or rough outdoor applications. HMS has now launched the Anybus Wireless Bolt CAN, featuring CAN-based communication to the host equipment.

The Anybus Wireless Bolt for CAN enables CAN-based, heavy-duty machinery and applications to transfer CAN data over a robust wireless link. Wireless communication is established either over a fast Wi-Fi connection or a Bluetooth link. The CAN data is transported over a TCP/IP link, which enables other standard Wi-Fi infrastructure to also connect to the wireless link if desired.

A typical use case is wireless access to CAN data from an industrial vehicle, such as a bulk material transport truck. For example, J1939 CAN data can be easily communicated to a handheld tablet, which gives the operator full control and visibility of the ongoing bulk material filling process.

The product is said to be fully transparent when it comes to transporting CAN data, meaning that it works with any CAN-based protocol, including CANopen. This opens the possibility to create mobile automation islands in any manufacturing process.

The Wireless Bolt product family also includes other versions that can connect to host equipment using serial and industrial Ethernet connectivity. On the wireless side of the Wireless Bolt, the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth options were recently complemented with a version that supports the LTE standards NB-IoT and CAT-M1, targeting IoT applications.
