Communication in the fast lane

31 July 2008

Industrial Ethernet is about to take a big step forward with a ten-fold increase in communications rates to 1Gbps(gigabit per second) with the release of a new open communication standard by the CC-Link Partners Association (CLPA).

Called CC-Link IE (Control and Communication Link Industrial Ethernet), it is the first completely integrated gigabit Ethernet network for industrial automation. Launched by the CLPA, it defines the new threshold for open standards for Industrial Ethernet.

CC-Link IE combines the best of many existing technologies and applies them to an optical industrial network system with a redundant architecture that enables extremely high-speed and reliable data transfer between field devices and other controllers via Ethernet links. The signalling rate of 1Gbps will redefine the users’ expectations and systems capabilities; it being more than enough to cater for the real-time communications requirement of today’s manufacturing industries.
