Sponsor Profile 37 CC-Link Partner Association - Automation Networks CC-Link is a family of open-technology industrial automation networks that process control, information & diagnostics to provide efficient, integrated factory-wide industrial and process automation. CC-Link provides high speed, deterministic communication seamlessly linking a wide assortment of multi-vendor automation devices over a single cable. THE ‘FAMILY OF CC-LINK NETWORKS’ is ideally suited for machine automation, cell or process control in a wide variety of industries. The CC-Link family includes fieldbus and Safety networks: CC-Link & CC-Link Safety; and the most advanced Industrial Ethernet networks; CC-Link IE Field & CC-Link IE Control. This family of networks is managed by the CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA). The Ethernetbased networks operate at 1 Gigabit speed to provide extremely fast and inherently deterministic communication from the field/sensor/ actuator level to the control level of a manufacturing or process operation. CC-Link is a family of industrial open-technology integrated automation networks: CC-Link IE Field - 1 Gigabit Industrial Ethernet network linking field level devices to controllers, as well as controllers to controllers and providing absolute deterministic communications without the need for detailed knowledge of Ethernet networking. CC-Link IE Field is IEC approved for safety communications and can provide integrated motion control and/or energy management functions all on a single Industrial Ethernet network. CC-Link IE Basic - CC-Link IE communication using general-purpose Ethernet technology for small-scale equipment not requiring high-speed control. Realizing cyclic communication on the CC-Link IE field network via software only development. CC-Link - Open-technology fieldbus network with performance up to 10 Mbps providing absolute deterministic behavior and cost effectiveness, flexibility and ease of use. CC-Link Safety - Open-technology fieldbus safety network that is IEC / ISO approved and meets or exceeds industry safety network standards. It provides cost effectiveness, flexibility industrial ethernet book 04.2017 and ease of use to automation safety networks, all while delivering full compatibility with the CC-Link fieldbus network. “Why choose CC-Link?” Primary reasons include CC-Link and CC-Link IE Field are high-performance, cost effective, flexible, as well as easy to install and use. These networks are globally accepted and CC-Link IE is an industry leader with Gigabit Ethernet networking. Independent market research has shown that CC-Link is the market leading choice for automation networks in Asia, the fastest growing market in the world. Combine that with the world leading productivity features of the network, and CC-Link can offer a solution that can bring significant improvements to any manufacturing enterprise anywhere. If that’s not enough; there are over 17 million installed nodes & over 1500 CC-Link certified products on the market. Many export oriented American and European manufacturers are incorporating CC-Link compatibility because of its strength and market leadership in Asia. CC-Link - Your Gateway to Asia Access markets closed to your current network strategy. You’ve implemented the local open network technologies in your products. But now it’s time to look further afield. Chances are these technologies leave a large part of the Asian market inaccessible. So how can you also capture that? Adding CC-Link connectivity can lead to a significant business increase in critical markets such as China. Our Gateway to Asia (G2A) program offers a comprehensive package of development and marketing benefits to help you capture this additional market share. ® CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA) is a Global organization with offices in the Americas, Europe, and across Asia. www.cc-link.org CC-Link Partner Association-Europe Email: Partners@CLPA-Europe.com Phone: +49 2102 486 1750 www.CLPA-Europe.com CC-Link Partner Association-Americas Email: Info@CCLinkAmerica.org Phone: +1 (847) 478-2647 www.CCLinkAmerica.org CC-Link Partner Association-Japan Email: cc-link@post0.mind.ne.jp Phone: +81-52-919-1588 www.cc-link.org
