- CC-Link IE is an Ethernet-based integrated network realizing seamless connection from information system to production sites.
- SLMP is a common protocol realizing seamless connection between CC-Link IE and TCP/IP based products.
- All you need to do is develop software to make Ethernet products comply with SLMP. It is very simple!
Advantages of Developing SLMP (Seamless Message Protocol) Compatible Products
Easy to Develop Compatible Products
SLMP only requires software development to develop products. Since SLMP uses a simple client-server communication system, you can develop products with only the SMLP specifications.
Simple Test for Acquiring Certifications
Only the software function check is conducted in the conformance tests. This simple test eases venders' burden on developing products.
Notes on products that have passed the SLMP conformance test
