Compressed Gas Filling System
CC-Link provides the "open" network backbone for a high-pressure gas filling system at ILL-MO in their Jacksonville, Illinois facility. The compressed gasses handled at this facility are Oxygen, Argon, Nitrogen, Carbon Dioxide and Helium. This system was designed and installed by Computer Integrated Automation, Inc. of Carol Stream, Illinois. The CC-Link network enables communication between PLCs, motion controllers, pneumatic valve manifolds, variable frequency drives (VDFs), digital I/O, and analog I/O devices. CC-Link handles remote device interfacing, integrating equipment from different manufacturers, data collection, information handling, and data exchange between PLC's and Machine control elements.
