The CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA) has strengthened its position in the Asian market with the announcement of an additional GB/T Chinese national standard. GB/T 33537.1 ∼.3-2017 is related to industrial communications networks and establishes CC-Link IE as a recommended standard in the Chinese market. This means that companies adopting the use of CC-Link IE in their machines and systems could gain a significant competitive advantage in this market.
CC-Link IE is currently the only open gigabit Ethernet for automation and a de-facto technology leader in the Asian market, where it has seen widespread use in the automotive and consumer electronics industries.
IE’s gigabit bandwidth supports the demands of Industry 4.0 applications. This new certification means that it will also be a choice for companies participating in the “Made in China 2025” initiative.
