FDT Group Completes Integration of CC-Link Open Networks

The SPS/IPC/DRIVES 2010 fair saw the announcement that the CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA) had signed an agreement with the FDT Group to incorporate the CC-Link family of open networks into the FDT standard by development of a protocol annex.
CC-Link provides high speed, deterministic communication linking a wide range of vendor automation devices over a single cable, regardless of the make of the devices. FDT takes the concept one stage further to standardise the communication and configuration interface between various open communications networks, with the aim of allowing any device to be configured, operated, and maintained through a standardised user interface - regardless of supplier, type or communication protocol.
Work on the annex has now been completed, meaning CC-Link is now fully supported by the FDT Group. Glenn Schulz, Managing Director of the FDT Group said: "This is a major step in the adoption of the FDT Technology into the world of discrete automation." CC-Link is one of the leading open communications protocols in the world with an installed base of 8 million nodes and over 240 manufacturers producing compatible devices.
