Fieldbus Network Solutions

* Click on the field network name to view details.

 
Ethernet Connection

Enables direct connection to personal computers or information networks with open protocol: Ethernet/IP or FINS protocol.

Controller Link (Fiber Optic)

High-speed Optical LAN with a transmission rate of 2 Mbps allows easy data exchange among PLC and a wide range of FA across 30 km.

Ethernet/IP

With Ethernet as the backbone architecture, optical switches can be used to extend network of 100 Mbps with easy data sharing among PLCs.

Controller Link (Wired)

Allows high-speed, large capacity data link with cost-saving wiring, data can be shared among 62 nodes in total.

PC Link (1:1, 1:N)

Easy and low-cost communication between PLCs of limited data capacity.

DeviceNet

Open network, which connects a variety of components such as drivers, temperature controller and etc. with Smart Features built with totalization and signal indication for maintenance.

CompoNet

Next generation network is ideal for high-speed ON/OFF bus for machinery system. With communication cycle time less than 1 ms connecting up to 1.5 km.
