Florence, KY (September 28, 2010): Balluff’s networking product line now includes a full I/O and RFID connectivity solution for a CC-Link fieldbus network. Balluff is one of the few manufacturers that offer a full I/O solution, which includes heavy duty machine mount I/O modules, supporting cordsets, and connectivity accessories.
Most CC-Link I/O networks are run out of control cabinets. Typically, IP20 I/O modules reside in costly and bulky enclosures. Due to the need of terminating all I/O points, these solutions are very costly and labor intensive. This can be simplified by using Balluff IP67 CC-Link I/O modules and supporting cordsets by placing the modules near the concentration of sensors and actuators. The smaller footprint and ease of setup will reduce installation material costs and labor, as well as decrease maintenance troubleshooting and repairs.
Balluff CC-Link Product Features:
- Unique push-button display allows for easy configuration right at the block
- IP67 rugged metal housing withstands harsh industrial environments
- Ports accept 2-wire or 3-wire inputs
Cordsets and Accessories
- Full range of network and auxiliary power cordsets
- Full line of accessories
- 100% reliable data tracking
- Supports use of both ISO 14443 and ISO 15693 13.56MHz based RFID data carriers
CC-Link is the most dominant and fastest growing fieldbus technology in Asia, and is quickly gaining popularity in the US. The open network is supported by the global CC-Link partner association CLPA, which comprises more than 1000 companies. CC-Link is a standardized fieldbus designed to integrate different automation components from a wide range of providers.
Balluff offers a full range of other networking products, including: DeviceNet, Profibus, Profinet, EtherNet/IP, and IO-Link.
