Mitsubishi CC-LINK IE FIELD

Mitsubishi’s CC-Link IE Field is a major innovation in industrial networks providing reliable, flexible, and seamless communication CC-Link + Industrial.

CC-Link_IE_Diagram_opt

Mitsubishi CC-Link IE is an open 1GB Industrial Ethernet automation network consisting of two parts, CC-Link IE Control, and CC-Link IE Field.

Mitsubishi’s CC-Link IE Control communicates over dual-loop fibre between PLCs, HMIs and PCs with an extremely large cyclical data-sharing capacity.  Mitsubishi’s CC-Link IE Field has a smaller cyclical data-sharing capacity but communicates with both PLCs and Remote I/O stations over shielded CAT5E cables with standard RJ45 connectors in a star, line or combination topology.  Mitsubishi’s CC-Link IE Field uses L Series Slave Head Stations for remote I/O.  By adding an Ethernet Adapter to the CC-Link IE Field network allows full access to the network from standard TCP/IP devices like PCs, HMIs, and sensors.

CC-Link IE Field Remote I/ORemote_IO_opt

  • Directly connectable on a CC-Link IE Field network
  • One extension module max. can be added to a Remote I/O, Analog, or High-Speed Counter Module
  • Fast logic function performs logic locally in the module
  • Certifications: UL, cUL, CE

CC-Link IE Field Analog ModulesAnalog_Module_opt

  • A/D and D/A module have 4 channels (voltage/current)
  • Switchable ranges
  • Handles analog ranges ±10VDC and 0~ 20mA
  • Averaging can be set to be triggered by extension I/O module
  • Certifications: UL, cUL, CE

CC-Link Bridge ModuleBridge_opt

  • Enables simple access to CC-Link deivces on a CC-Link IE Field network
  • Connect up to 64 CC-Link Ver. 1 modules
  • Certifications: UL, cUL, CE

CC-Link IE Field High-Speed Counter ModuleCounter_Module_opt

  • 32 bit counter
  • 5/24VDC (2 to 5 mA input) or differential input
  • Switchable counting speed up to 8Mpps
  • PWM output function
  • Certifications: UL, cUL, CE

CC-Link IE Field Ethernet AdapterNZ2GFETB_opt

The Ethernet Adapter is used to add standard Ethernet TCP/IP devices onto a CC-Link IE Field network, like PCs, GOT1000 HMIs, and 3rd party devices. These Ethernet TCP/IP devices are bridged into the control network using Seamless Message Protocol (SLMP), which also enables use of standard MC Protocol and MELSOFT programming port protocol. The Ethernet Adapter is DIN-rail mounted, separate from other controllers or hardware.
