CC-Link IE TSN compatible products


CC-Link IE TSN compatible products

One of the major themes of SPS Smart Production Solutions was the digital transformation of businesses, giving space to exhibitors to showcase not only their solutions, but also ways to help the migration to the digital world. The CLPA contributed by showcasing the first CC-Link IE TSN compatible automation products from Mitsubishi Electric. The range of solutions that SPS attendees were able to look at included PLCs from Mitsubishi Electric’s iQ-R and iQ-F series, FR-A800 inverters, MR-J5 servos, GOT HMI as well as remote I/O modules.

To showcase the interaction between Mitsubishi Electric’s different CC-Link IE TSN drives and controls, the CLPA hosted live demonstrations, where PLCs shared data with each other as well as with servos, I/O blocks and a TCP/IP based Cognex machine vision system. All these were connected by means of a TSN network switch from Hirschmann. Other switches from Moxa were also on display. In this way, visitors were able to witness how these products can deliver TSN-based high performance solutions, even for high-speed and accurate motion control applications. Even more, the integration of the Cognex TCP/IP machine vision system in the network shows how CC-Link IE TSN can handle both time-critical control data and non-time-critical network traffic whilst ensuring deterministic communications.

John Browett, General Manager at CLPA Europe, comments: “At our debut at the Hannover Fair in 2019, we showed our first working demo of CC-Link IE TSN products. We are proud to be taking this a step further at SPS by now integrating high performance motion control over TSN and look forward to seeing more and more devices in the near future. In only one year from its launch, we have seen a growing interest in our latest technology. The advanced drives and controls created by Mitsubishi Electric are key enablers for Industry 4.0 and Smart Manufacturing, and our open industrial Ethernet technology helps them to run at peak performance and support the industrial communications of the future.
