Connect to Multivendor Controller Networks
This Unit allows you to connect to FL-net, an open network based on Ethernet. Multivendor FL-net networks can be built to combine CJ series PLCs with CNC machines, robots, and PLCs from other manufacturers.
- Conforms to FL-net, a quickly spreading standard.
- FL-net is a multivendor FA network at the controller/machine level that is based on Ethernet. (It uses UDP/IP.)
- FL-net supports message transmissions and cyclic data transmissions. (Message transmissions are also possible using FINS communications.)
- A CJ-series PLC can be used to interface communications between Ethernet information networks, OMRON’s Controller Link FA network, and DeviceNet field bus.
