CC-Link IE acquires Chinese national standard


CC-Link IE acquires Chinese national standard

The CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA) announces it has acquired an additional GB/T Chinese national standard. GB/T 33537.1 ∼.3-2017 is related to industrial communications networks and establishes CC-Link IE as a recommended standard in the Chinese market. The open gigabit Ethernet standard CC-Link IE has seen widespread use in Asian the automotive and consumer electronics industries. The Asian market is seen as being particularly important for European companies looking to expand globally, as it is estimated that approximately half the global spending on automation takes place there.

CC-Link IE’s gigabit bandwidth is already well placed to support the demands of Industry 4.0 applications, and this new certification means that it will also be a leading choice for companies participating in the “Made in China 2025” initiative. The certification was announced at a high level ceremony at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in Beijing on, and was held in cooperation with the Instrumentation Technology & Economy Institute (ITEI). ITEI played a key role in the certification process by recommending CC-Link IE to the Chinese standardization committee on the basis that it had already received IEC 61158 and IEC 67184 certification. After deliberation by a working group of vendors and end users, the decision was taken to award the GB/T certification.

The presentation ceremony was hosted by National Technical Committee 124 on Industrial Process Measurement and Control of the Standardization Administration of China (SAC/TC124) and included around 100 people. Mr. Ouyang Jinsong, the Director of ITEI and a member of the "Intelligent Manufacturing" specialist working group of the Ministry of Science and Technology, went over the reasons why CC-Link IE was certified as GB/T. Mr. Jinsong, commented, “CC-Link IE has the functionality required for seamless manufacturing connections, from the production site through management layer. Moreover, cross-directional collaboration with other industrial networks is also in progress. CC-Link IE is expected to be a very effective solution for enhancing the Chinese manufacturing industry´s competitiveness through ´Made in China 2025´."

CLPA Europe General Manager John Browett said: “CC-Link IE and its fieldbus counterpart CC-Link have held leadership positions in the Asian market for years now. This latest certification is the result of CLPA’s active involvement in this key global market and further acknowledgement of the benefits CC-Link IE can deliver to companies looking to build systems that will meet the demands of next generation manufacturing. The fact that it has now reached the level of a recommended standard in China is a clear sign of the importance attached to it by this market.
