Few would argue that implementation of Industrial Ethernet is an important topic these days among controls and automation professionals in the manufacturing space, including packaging. Also clear is that more and more plant managers and engineers are open to using Ethernet. Click here for a look at a recent Automation World magazine survey on this very topic.

Should anyone be in the hunt for a learning opportunity in Industrial Ethernet, consider a free seminar about CC-Link IE on February 13 from 9:00 to noon at the Dayton, OH, Marriott. Hosting the seminar is the CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA), an international organization with more than 1,740 member companies worldwide.

CC-Link is said to be the leading industrial network in Asia and is growing in the Americas and Europe, too. As for CC-Link IE, it’s inherently deterministic. And because it does not require the use of Ethernet switches, it’s said to be easier and less costly to implement than other networking options. Included in the February 13 seminar will be information on how the original CC-Link fieldbus network can integrate with a CC-Link IE network.

Worth noting, of course, is that CC-Link is one of the six leading Ethernet networking protocols out there today. The merits of each were energetically described in a presentation at The Automation Conference last May in Chicago. Click here for a video of a portion of that session.
