Nuremberg, November 22, 2016

The CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA) and PROFIBUS & PROFINET International (PI) have delivered on their announcement to allow easy interoperability between CC-Link IE and PROFINET - as the new joint specification is released at SPS/IPC/Drives 2016. The new specification builds on an initial announcement at 2015’s fair, where both network organizations promised to maximize the transparency between the two protocols. Both the CLPA and PI completed the new specification within just one year to respond to users’ requirements.

Interoperability between CC-Link IE and PROFINET planned for end of 2016 with 2 solutions (Coupler and Link).
