Process and control today | Future-oriented open network technology of CLPA in the spotlight at SPS


The CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA) will participate online in the SPS – Smart Production Solutions event via the “SPS on air” digital platform to highlight the role of time-sensitive networks (TSN) in digital transformation . From November 15 to December 3, 2021, the organization will demonstrate how its latest technology, CC-Link IE TSN, can deliver unparalleled visibility and convergence for scalable, data-driven applications. This is achieved by combining open gigabit Ethernet and TSN.

“SPS on air” will provide a leading digital platform for industrial automation experts around the world to discuss the latest trends and technologies shaping the industry. Key areas will include digital transformation, industry 4.0, industrial communications, and smart data-driven concepts for control and visualization. As an industry leader in open automation network technologies, CLPA will contribute to the forum by discussing the opportunities TSN offers to support future-oriented intelligent operations.

In particular, the organization will highlight how industrial communications solutions that harness this innovative technology, such as CC-Link IE TSN, can provide the level of transparency and convergence needed to create smart, data-driven manufacturing facilities and entire businesses. Participants interested in learning more about this network technology, its main features and role in digital transformation strategies, will have the chance to do so through the virtual profile of CLPA.

Visitors to CLPA’s “SPS on air” page will be able to watch videos and other key documents will be made available. They will also have the option to download a free copy of the latest “Getting Your TSN Product to Market” white paper. This gives a practical overview of the implementation of TSN and the importance of compliance testing for automation products using this technology.

Finally, the organization’s experts will be available throughout the event to discuss the benefits of CLPA technologies for manufacturers as well as to provide additional information. John Browett, Managing Director of CLPA Europe, comments: “SPS is a key event for CLPA and the ability to attend through the ‘SPS on air’ platform will provide truly global reach for the duration of the show. We look forward to meeting participants and sharing with them how our network technologies can support the creation of the connected industries of the future.

“In particular, our latest solution, CC-Link IE TSN, provides the converged network architecture needed by businesses that want to take their operations to the next level through advanced Industry 4.0 applications. We invite anyone interested in the sustainability of their automation devices, machines or factories to contact our experts during the event.
