CLPA now offers CC-Link IE communication using 100 Mbps general-purpose Ethernet. Via software implementation only, cyclic communication can be established for visualization of production facilities through IIoT.
In addition, CC-Link IE Field Basic can now be certified by the partner at no cost. By completing the CC-Link IE Field Basic CLPA Conformance testing, the CLPA partner can certify any CC-Link IE Field Basic product at no cost; the partner is only needed to complete the CLPA certified testing and submit the test results to the CLPA for certification.
