EtherNet/IP to CC-Link Local & Intelligent Station Gateway

5209-DFNT-CCLINK

ProSoft Technology's EtherNet/IP® to CC-Link communication gateway allows Rockwell Automation® control platform users to integrate CC-Link Master compatible products with existing EtherNet/IP control networks.

The EtherNet/IP protocol driver supports the Explicit Messaging implementation of the protocol and is user-configurable as both a Client and/or a Server. As a Client, the gateway can send commands and manage data flow among a large number of devices on the EtherNet/IP network. As a Server, the gateway can provide concurrent data transfer to multiple Clients.

The CC-Link protocol driver acts as a Local or Intelligent Station, which enables easy connection to the CC-Link Master-controlled network for data transfer. Configuration options allow the gateway to occupy up to four (4) stations on the CC-Link network. Transient Messaging capability increases overall I/O data transfer capacity by more than 8,000 words. When configured as a Local Station, the gateway allows read-only viewing of the entire CC-Link Master cyclic database from all configured slave on the CC-Link network.

Features and Benefits

Specifications

ProLinx® Communication Gateways provide connectivity for two or more dissimilar network types. The gateways, encased in sturdy extruded aluminum, are stand-alone DIN-rail-mounted solutions that provide data transfer between many of today’s most widely used industrial automation.

 

EtherNet/IP

The EtherNet/IP protocol is one of the primary connectivity tools used by different Rockwell Automation® platforms.

The Explicit Messaging aspect of the protocol has been implemented to provide asynchronous data transfer between the ProLinx gateway and Rockwell Automation hardware

CC-Link

CC-Link (Control & Communication Link) is an open-standard-based communication protocol that enables easy connection to Mitsubishi and other Master PLCs.

  • CC-Link is one of the dominant protocols used in Asia and is rapidly gaining acceptance worldwide.
  • The ProLinx CC-Link interface is a slave (Local Station or Intelligent Device), which can be connected to a CC-Link Master that controls data transfer.
  • The gateway is a stand-alone, DIN-rail-mounted solution that provides one CC-Link network port with TE-CON7 4P connector and an Ethernet port with RJ45 connector.

 

Functional Specifications

EtherNet/IP Server

In Server mode, the gateway accepts messages from one or more Clients that want to read data from or write data to the gateway's internal memory database.

Miscellaneous

Binary, Integer or Floating point data supported, as well as other special data types, like timers, counters, ASCII files and more

EtherNet/IP Server

Five independent TCP/IP Server sockets permit multiple Clients to see and change all user data contained in the gateway.

The Server supports CIP and PCCC Explicit Message connections from EtherNet/IP Clients.

PCCC Data File Emulation
(the Server looks like an SLC 5/05 to the Clients)

Data Table File Size: 100 or 1000 words
Data Table File Start: - Fixed at N10
Data Table Range: 
 N10 to N109, based on file size set to 100, or

 N10 to N19, based on file set to 1000

(Other data table types also supported)

CIP Services Supported

0x4C - CIP Data Table Read

0x4D - CIP Data Table Write

 

EtherNet/IP Client

In Client mode, the gateway controls read and write data transfers between the itself and other EtherNet/IP devices. Data transfer can be initiated and executed with no logic programming required in the target Rockwell Automation hardware.

EtherNet/IP Client

Three simultaneous Client connections

Command List

Each Client supports up to 100 read or write commands per Client, allowing up to three concurrent connections with Ethernet/IP devices.

Command Poll List

User can enable or disable polling on a per-command basis, as well as choose to write continuously or only on change of data.

Configurable Parameters

Number of commands (Up to 100 per client)

Min Command Delay

Response Timeout

Retry Count

(and much more)
