VERNON HILLS, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA) announces it will host a free seminar about CC-Link IE, the first gigabit speed Industrial Ethernet network for automation control, at the Dayton Marriot, 1414 S. Patterson Boulevard, on February 13 from 9 a.m. until noon.
“Automation system users need to understand these technologies and their options for network implementation. This seminar is an excellent way to learn about CC-Link IE technology.”
“Industrial Ethernet implementation is a hot topic in the automation industry,” said Charles Lukasik, Director of CLPA-Americas. “Automation system users need to understand these technologies and their options for network implementation. This seminar is an excellent way to learn about CC-Link IE technology.”
CC-Link IE is inherently deterministic and does not require the use of Ethernet switches, which means easier and lower cost implementation. Network installation and implementation is also extremely simple. In addition, this seminar also describes how the original CC-Link fieldbus network can integrate with a CC-Link IE network.
The seminar is intended for manufacturers as well as system integrators who are involved with automation networking issues. After lunch, presenters will discuss topics intended for automation equipment manufacturers who need to understand how to implement CC-Link IE technology into their products so that these products can be part of a complete Ethernet-based automation solution.
