A conformance test centre has opened in Dusseldorf, Germany, to serve European manufacturers in making products compatible with the open CC-Link automation network technology.

The centre adds to the group of existing facilities already established in North America and Asia.

It is run by key partner Mitsubishi Electric Europe BV in cooperation with the CC-Link Partners Association (CLPA).

The CLPA is responsible for supporting manufacturers and users of the technology, overseeing, developing and managing the CC-Link specifications and promoting the worldwide adoption of the network.

The Dusseldorf centre gives European manufacturers a convenient location for conformance testing, avoiding the need to send products overseas as in the past.

CC-Link is an open network with a global installed base of approximately eight million nodes.

It allows many different devices from many different manufacturers to communicate freely over a single cable.

Conformance testing ensures that all devices will be fully interoperable with all other devices used on any CC-Link network.

The centre uses a comprehensive array of tests that ensure CC-Link products can be used with confidence.

Any approved product will be capable of joining a network and communicating with all other devices regardless of their manufacture.

CC-Link conformance testing covers three main areas: connectability, noise immunity and ageing.

Connectability verifies the correct hardware and software operation for communication on the network.

Noise immunity ensures the device meets the required standard for rejection of electrical interference, which is a key strength of CC-Link.

Ageing insures the device will perform as expected over its operating lifetime.

Standardised equipment is used for all tests, ensuring that all tests conducted around the world are uniform.

The CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA) is an international organisation with more than 1,400 member companies worldwide.

The partners’ common objective is promotion of the technical development and adoption of the family of CC-Link open network technologies.

More than 1,100 certified products are now available from more than 240 manufacturers.
