January 27, 2017 // By Julien Happich
The Anybus Wireless Bolt is a simple to install, rugged IP67 wireless module which connects industrial equipment to the cloud.

It mounts onto existing industrial equipment, similar to a mechanical bolt and features an 18-pin internal connector compatible with industry standard protocols operating over serial, CAN, or Ethernet interfaces. Via its wireless connectivity (Bluetooth and Wi-Fi), it offers the possibility to manage machine configuration via a standard tablet or smartphone as well as to connect to a cloud service realizing Industrial IoT. The unit is built around u-blox' stand-alone IoT gateway module ODIN-W2 with an open CPU architecture and offering support for ARM mbed.
