SOT-GS80/150 (CC-Link Support Type)


Supports CC-Link Ver. 1.10
CC-Link networks give great freedom in building easy-to-use lines. CC-Link’s partner product, the space optical transfer system, enables the creation of a system from a large number of distributed I/O devices, reducing costs by reducing the amount of cabling necessary. This is especially useful when communicating with mobile units in an automated conveyance system. There is no need for an interface unit to connect directly to the CC-Link. A single master unit can be used to connect this product to up to 42 units. Up to 23 words of data can be transmitted per communication exchange. Extended mode can also be used to send and receive up to 1,000 words of data. Terminal block connectors are used for connecting. The connected units can be products from the CC-Link interface series, as well as our SOT-GS80 series (80 meters) or SOT-GS150 series (150 meters)of RS232C/422/485 interfaces.

Note: This system uses full duplex communication. For this reason, use either all types A and B, or all types C and D, in order to avoid cross talk on sending and receiving frequencies. Always use units in A-B or C-D pairs.
Note: Not compatible with SOT-VS type.
Note: Detailed information about these types is available on request.
