The CC-Link IE TSN module can operate either as a master or local station. Control communication requiring real-time performance and TCP/IP communication can be mixed, maximizing CC-Link IE TSN performance and functionality.
Supporting standard Ethernet enables various network-compatible devices and diagnostic software to be used, realizing an integrated network infrastructure that is easy to maintain. Ethernet communications supporting TCP/IP communication such as information that has been collected and analyzed by edge devices and IT systems can be mixed in the same line with the real-time control communications of CC-Link IE TSN.
Network station parameters that are stored in the CPU module are automatically distributed to slave modules when initializing the network and when returning disconnected stations to the network. Individual registration of the parameters to each station is unnecessary after replacing slave devices.
