Industry With the 4.0 phase, all machines, products and systems need to communicate with each other very quickly in all platforms such as production facilities, smart buildings and infrastructure projects. CC-Link is the only open-source industrial communication infrastructure that is now up to 100 times faster than industrial communication systems that can communicate with 10 megabits per second. CC-Link, which offers ideal solutions for machine and process control in many different sectors such as food, medicine, white goods, is also preferred intensively in the automotive sector and building automation. CC-Link provides high performance and reliable communication; Honda Motor's Yorii factory in the automotive industry, Ford Mustang and Mazda 6'nin produced AutoAlliance plant in many big brands, such as factories and smart buildings in China, Nanyang Fine Arts Academy in Singapore, such as the success of the project has attracted attention.
CC-Link (Control & Communication Link), a communication and control technology that is of great importance in supporting the needs of Industry 4.0, stands out as the only open industrial communication infrastructure that is up to 100 times faster than industrial communication systems that can communicate at 10 megabits per second. CC-Link technology, which offers ideal solutions for machinery and process control in many different sectors such as food, medicine and white goods, is widely preferred in the automotive industry and in the automation of many smart buildings. CC-Link compatible products manufacturers and CC-Link employees CLPA user on the globe gathered under the same roof to expand this network (CC-Link Partner Association) Turkey Country Manager Tolga bizelesin, assign significant achievements in the automotive industry CC-Link gave examples from practice . Stressing that CC-Link provides high-speed control and communication in buildings as well as in industry by connecting to a large number of automation devices belonging to different manufacturers over a single cable, Bizel also mentioned examples of smart building automation projects in the world.
Honda increases production and operations management efficiency
Honda Motor in Japan's Saitama, the main factory in Yorii'de tool body assembly line for the CC-Link IE network, indicating that Bizel, said the following; Tanıy Honda opts for the ethernet-based CC-Link IE network, which allows communication within the unified network for control signals from factory automation devices, including production management information and safety signals, thereby increasing the efficiency and efficiency of the Yorii Plant's production and operations management.
At Honda's Yori Plant, a control line for the vehicle body assembly line was installed, while the overall network architecture was first considered on a flat construction that combines the entire factory into a single network. However, considering the possibility that a single error could stop the entire network of the factory, it was decided that it would be more appropriate to use multiple networks, and a robust and simple construction was needed to transfer know-how to other factories. Honda also identified two key functions for the team network in the planning phase of the system architecture, one of which was the central visualization of factory automation control devices, while the other main function was the transmission of security signals. Aiming to establish a system where factory automation controller installation, monitoring, error detection and other activities can be centralized through the network, Honda decides to incorporate security signals into the network in order to make flexible line changes possible, thus avoiding a serious waste of time. Honda, who prefers CC-Link IE technology for the realization of this system required by Yorii Factory, enables the transmission of maintenance and security information from connected factory automation devices as well as control information for a single ethernet cable, PLCs and control devices. .

Big savings at the Ford Mustang and Mazda 6's production facility
In the US state of Michigan, the Ford Mustang and Mazda 6 were produced at the AutoAlliance facility, and the CC-Link network was heavily utilized. Or Thanks to CC-Link, the speed at which the new lines are installed and commissioned enables significant savings compared to other previously used systems. The superior reliability of CC-Link technology increases the efficiency of the production plant. A series of conveyors controlled by CC-Link pass the vehicle bodies through various welding, assembly and painting stations. Each vehicle travels about twenty kilometers during the production process. The CC-Link network, which provides communication and coordination of robots in production, enables the robots to share their positions with each other in order to start and stop the robot movements as well as to prevent collisions. More than 95 percent of the controllers in the body mounting section work in conjunction with the CC-Link network. Iste
High energy savings and low operating costs in smart buildings
Expressing that CC-Link technology is used extensively in smart office buildings and residences in China, where the construction industry is active, Tolga Bizel said; “CC-Link technology is highly adopted for the building automation system, especially in East China, including Shanghai. CC-Link provides high energy savings and lowers operating costs by controlling a wide range of equipment in these buildings. It also offers a comfortable working and living environment. CC-Link network; It controls many systems such as electricity distribution, water supply, air conditioning and lighting systems, boiler and plumbing control systems. CC-Link, which also allows remote scanning of water and electricity meters, can be easily adapted to previously installed smart building systems and provides high performance at low cost. "
Great ease of monitoring and control processes in building automation
Expressing that CC-Link network is also preferred for the building automation system of Nanyang Fine Arts Academy in Singapore, Tolga Bizel said; “Providing a clean, green and comfortable environment in educational facilities is of paramount importance in Singapore. However, realizing an effective construction at low cost, ensuring long-term efficiency of the facilities and protecting energy resources are among the very sensitive issues. In order to meet all these requirements at Nanyang Fine Arts Academy, the integration of a wide range of services such as HVAC, electricity distribution, plumbing and lighting automation is provided by the CC-Link network. It is advantageous to have PLCs installed in all facilities in order to realize a high-speed building automation system and provide 24-hour monitoring and control for safety, energy saving and indoor comfort. Control devices such as pumps, fans and temperature sensors are used throughout the building, and each device is connected to the PLC controller via the CC-Link network. In this way, reduction in wiring, improvement in maintenance operations, ease of monitoring and control for each device are provided. "
Emphasizing that one of the most important features that provide advantage in terms of maintenance in CC-Link technology is the ability of customers to program the network and connect stations via a modem connected to the master PLC, Bizel said: enables problems to be diagnosed remotely, ”he concluded by saying.
