CLPA PI White Paper


Transparent Network Infrastructure between CC-Link IE and PROFINET 

The CLPA (CC-Link Partner Association) and PI (PROFIBUS & PROFINET International) are announcing a close partnership. The objective of the partnership is to promote and broaden the use of open Industrial Ethernet based networks.

With their cooperation, CLPA and PI aim to make today’s frequently required gateways between CC-Link IE and PROFINET networks possible in an easy transparent way through standardized interfaces.

To implement this cooperation from a technical point of view, there are two standardized technical gateway solutions: coupler solution and link solution.

Please find  more information in this white paper.
