CC-Link makes fast network easy to use

Mitsubishi has announced CC-Link (Control and Communications Link) – a new high speed industrial automation network offering significant speed and performance standards over current open standards.

The bus topology network uses familiar RS485 twisted pair connections working at 10Mbaud, with an efficient protocol that increases effective speed still further. CC-Link supports 64 nodes per network, with 2048 I.O points per system, and operates over distances up to 1200m.
