Introduction to CC-Link IE
High-speed Wide-bandwidth Communication
1Gbps communication speed
Bandwidth is divided between cyclic (synchronous) communications (I/O control, safety, motion, energy) and transient (asynchronous) communications (alarms, diagnostic data, etc.) with no impact on performance.
High-speed communications for improved production efficiency
1Gbps communication speed enables high-speed control of field devices and coordination among equipment. Shortens takt time.
Share safety signals throughout the network and among processes
By placing safety PLCs in each process on production lines and linking them with a CC-Link IE Field network (using safe communication functionality), should a safe shutdown occur in one process, the linkage will ensure safe shutdowns in neighboring processes as well.
Synchronization with servo amplifiers and other devices
Motion control allows fixed-cycle synchronous communication with devices, such as synchronization with a servo amplifier.
Simple Communications Programming
Simple network system construction, with no need to set up connections
Data transmission is achieved with only parameter settings and programming that performs reading and writing to memory.
Easy System Construction and Maintenance
Leveraging globally-standardized technologies
Reduce costs using standard Industrial Ethernet equipment such as cables, connectors, and other physical layer equipment
- Ethernet cable (CAT5e)
- Ethernet Switch (1Gbps)
We add error codes to the frame and transmitted data portions in transmission frame formats. It's now easier to detect problem areas in the event of frame data errors caused by cable malfunctions.
Application of network diagnostic functions
Downtime can be reduced when problems occur by quickly identifying problem areas on the network using standard tools.
The freedom to set up networks according to use case
Star, line, mixed star and line, and ring networks can be built simply by connecting cables to open ports.
Building flexible IIoT systems
TSN communication technology used as the time sharing communication method.
TSN (Time-Sensitive Networking) Ethernet communication technology is used as the communication method for time sharing. This makes it possible to gather information from system devices via IP while still ensuring that control communication is performed in real-time.
