Beckhoff's CP-Link 3 for HMI Installations
The CP-Link 3 for HMI installations has a new display and visualization concept for flexible connection of up to 255 Ethernet panels or panel PCs with one industrial PC. CP-Link 3 is based entirely on standard Ethernet and IP-based protocol for transfer of images. Networking can be done using standard Ethernet cables (Cat 5) which are suitable for drag chains. It’s a pure software solution based entirely on 100-Mbit/s Ethernet and IP protocol.
