CC-Link is a high speed, high performance industrial network technology that enables devices from numerous manufacturers to communicate resulting in a fast, deterministic control system. CC-Link is an open-architecture network that was originally developed by Mitsubishi Electric, a global leader in automation and motion control products. CC-Link subsequently became an open technology and is now managed by the CC-Link Partner Association with offices throughout the world. Today there are more than 2100 association partners. These companies offer a wide range of more than 1300 CC-Link compatible products which include industrial PCs, PLCs, robots, servos, drives, valve manifolds, digital & analog I/O modules, temperature controllers, mass flow controllers, and many others. There are millions & millions of installed CC-Link products. This installed base is rapidly increasing.
The CC-Link Partner Association exists to support member companies, provide technical assistance in developing CC-Link compatible products, conduct conformance testing, and to promote these compatible products to the marketplace.
