Automotive 

Automotive industry, where the Wireless Bolt allows communication between the different machines which the build cars – this offers a robust and stable solution for the factory and increases the efficiency and reduces the wiring needed which is ideal in environments with many moving parts.

AGV’S for warehouse

Previously used in the automotive industry to connect automated guided vehicles (AGVs) to a factory’s industrial network. The AGVs were used to move specific components between production cells, this eliminated the need for humans to manually lift heavy components and increased the safety and efficiency of the operation. The Anybus products also support IEEE 802.11r standard for fast roaming, this is useful for applications where seamless connectivity is required across a factory floor especially for AGVs, this ensures the AGVs are always in contact with the network and are not delayed or interrupted due to connectivity being switched between access points. 

Food processing 

The Anybus Wireless Bolt has been used in bakeries where industrial machines are used to mix large amounts of dough. The Anybus Bolt can be used to replace cables between a machine to a control cabinet and can eliminate the need for slip rings which reduces the number moving parts in the machine increasing reliability overall.

Stage lighting

The Wireless Bolt has also been used in theatres with hundreds of moving stage lights, the wireless bolt eliminates the need for wires and allows for real-time control of the stage lights. The Anybus Wireless range is ideal for complex applications with a large number moving parts such as RGVs as it eliminates the wiring needed between PLCs in the RGV and the main control PLC this allows much more control over the movement of the RGV.
