About CC-Link IE
- 1.Optimal network choice for complete manufacturing control up to the business information system level.
- 2.CC-Link IE is a vertically integrated and Ethernet-based network from IT layer to field layer.
- 3.Ultra high-speed & ultra large capacity network with real-time performance.
CC-Link IE Features
Ethernet-based integration of I/O, safety, motion and energy control, all on one cable.
- 1.High-speed wide-bandwidth communication (1Gbps)
Provides safe, high-speed control when simultaneously sending quality and traceability data.
- 2.Integration of safety,motion control and energy functions.
I/O, safety, motion and energy control have been integrated into a single network.
- 3.Simple communication programming
Memory - mapped based communications
- 4.Easy system construction and maintenance
Standard Ethernet physical layer with added diagnostic functions.
Flexible topologies - star, line, mixed star and line, and ring setups
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 sequencers in each process on production lines and linking them on a CC-Link IE field network (using safe communication functionality), should a safe shutdown occur in one process, the linkage will ensure safe shutdowns for 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.
