The Non-Stop Open Network™

CC-Link is The Non-Stop Open Network™ because it delivers a wide range of productivity benefits to your business. In the end, operations need to run non-stop to insure maximum productivity is obtained, and CC-Link helps you deliver this.

  • High noise immunity; avoid network malfunctions due to normal factory processes such as welding, etc.
  • Support for parallel (AND) as well as selective (OR) branches for improved flexibility
  • Loop-back function; a dual redundant loop configuration insures communication is maintained even when cables a disconnected or cut.
  • Detaching slave function; allows network devices to have maintenance performed on-line without affecting the rest of the network.
  • Automatic return function; allows devices to return to normal operation without any special handling once a fault is cleared.
  • Hot swap of stations; replace devices as required without stopping network operation
  • Station bypass; create virtual stations that can be physically implemented at a future date, making expansion easy.
  • Response time; up to 1 gigabit per second for CC-Link IE, the world’s fastest industrial Ethernet.
  • No configuration files required; avoids maintenance issues later and provides flexibility now.
