CC-Link – PROFINET coupler

   

CC-Link – PROFINET coupler

The Hilscher NT 151-CCIE-RE coupler is the first result of the cooperation between the CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA) and PROFINET & PROFIBUS International (PI). It is the first device to implement the CC-Link IE/PROFINET interoperability specification and works as both, a CC-Link IE Field Intelligent Device and a PROFINET IO-Device. By transmitting data bi-directionally between CC-Link IE and PROFINET, the NT 151 allows both network controllers to communicate with each other. Key mechanisms include a mapping model to map data from both sides, diagnostics for coupler and networks, and a SyCon-based DTM which works as the coupler configuration tool.

John Browett, General Manager at CLPA Europe, explains: “We believe the coupler device represents an important step forward for companies operating globally, whether you are operating in Europe, where PROFINET is strong, or you are operating in Asia, where CC-Link IE is strong. It will now provide the necessary freedom to work in these markets without limitations caused by network architectures.

Armin Pühringer, Business Development Manager at Hilscher, says: “Cooperation between companies providing interoperability is at the heart of industrial Internet of Things (IoT). Hilscher is proud to say that we are the first company to introduce a real device enabling these specifications.
