Applications from Around the Globe


Jan 11, 2010

CC-Link is a high speed, high performance industrial network technology that enables devices from numerous manufacturers to communicate resulting in a fast, deterministic control system. CC-Link is an open-architecture network that was originally developed by Mitsubishi Electric, a global leader in automation and motion control products. CC-Link became an open-technology network in 2000 and is now managed by the CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA) with offices throughout the world. By mid-2006 there were more than 3.5 million installed CC-Link nodes and user companies could select from nearly 800 CC-Link compatible products manufactured by hundreds of companies from around the globe. These products include industrial PCs, PLCs, robots, servos, drives, valve manifolds, digital & analog I/O modules, temperature controllers, mass flow controllers, bar code & RFID readers, and many others.

CC-Link (Control & Communication Link) is an industrial field-level network that processes both control and information data at high speed, to provide efficient, integrated factory and process automation. It provides high speed, deterministic communication linking a wide range of multi-vendor automation devices over a single cable. CC-Link is ideally suited for machine, cell or process control in industries ranging from semiconductors to food & beverage, automotive to pharmaceuticals, material handling to building automation. CC-Link is already the dominant open technology network in Asia and is growing fast in North America and Europe.
