CLPA and PI announce interoperability specification
CLPA和PI宣布互操作性规范

The CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA) and PROFIBUS & PROFINET International (PI) have delivered on their announcement to allow easy interoperability between CC-Link IE and PROFINET - as the new joint specification is released.

随着新的联合规范的发布,CC-Link协会(CLPA)和PROFIBUS&PROFINET国际组织(PI)随之公告了这一规范,使轻松实现CC-Link IE和PROFINET之间的互操作性成为可能。

The new specification builds on an initial announcement at the 2015 SPS/IPC/Drives fair, where both network organizations promised to maximize the transparency between the two protocols.

新规范基于2015年SPS / IPC / Drives展会上的初步公告,当时这两大网络组织承诺最大限度地提高两个协议之间的透明度。

Over the past year a working group, which includes members from leading networking experts Hilscher and Molex, has been drafting a specification to provide interoperability between the two protocols. The development was guided in part by the white paper distributed at 2015’s fair, which in turn outlined the feedback of end users whose requests drove the cooperation.

在过去一年中,成员来自赫优讯和Molex等领先网络专家的一个工作组一直在起草这份规范,以提供两个协议之间的互操作性。开发工作部分由2015年展会上颁布的白皮书指导,白皮书概述了请求促成合作的最终用户的反馈。

Promoting transparency and ease of integration is one of the primary concerns for achieving concepts such as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Many end users will source production machinery from across the world, which may result in machines in the same plant that communicate via differing protocols. This can lead to increased engineering work to achieve integration, as users are combining heterogeneous architectures that may not necessarily communicate as standard. End users of both networks flagged these challenges to both the CLPA and PI, who reacted quickly via the new cooperation to find solutions.

提高透明度和易于集成是实现诸如工业物联网(IIoT)等概念的主要关注点之一。许多终端用户是从全球各地采购生产机器,这可能造成同一工厂中的机器通过不同的协议进行通信。这导致的后果是实现整合的工程量增加,因为用户组合的可能是未必成为标准通信的异构架构。两大网络的最终用户向CLPA和PI转达了这些挑战,而CLPA和PI通过全新合作快速做出应对,并找到解决方案。
 
CC-Link IE is an acknowledged technology leader in the Asian Market, while PROFINET is most prevalent in Europe, therefore the new specification will greatly simplify integration and increase freedom of choice for end users who source production machinery globally. After less than a year of work, the specification will be made available to members of both organizations, which will allow them to develop hardware products to support the new specification.

CC-Link IE是亚洲市场公认的技术领先者,而PROFINET在欧洲最为流行,因此新规范将大大简化集成,并为全球采购生产设备的终端用户提供更多选择自由。经过不到一年的努力,该规范将提供给两个组织的成员,这将允许他们开发硬件产品来支持新的规范。

The specification centers on the functionality of a ‘coupler’ device – which allows transparent communication between CC-Link IE and PROFINET. As a result, both networks can seamlessly share information. This can effectively achieve communication between differing parts of a line on separate networks, hugely increasing transparency and integration.

该规范集中于“耦合器”设备的功能——允许CC-Link IE和PROFINET之间的透明通信。因此,两个网络可以无缝地共享信息。这可以有效地实现在不同网络的不同部分之间的通信,大大提高了透明度和集成。

Both the CLPA and PI expect to see the first supported products coming to market sometime in 2017, with some partners already showing enthusiasm for the new collaboration. This will effectively mean that the original concerns of end users which sparked the collaboration will have been addressed in under two years, displaying both organizations’ commitment to addressing users’ needs.

CLPA和PI均希望在2017年某个时候看到第一批支持产品上市,而一些合作伙伴表现出对新合作的极大热情。这意味着促成两大机构合作的终端用户的关注点将在两年内得到解决,同时也表明了两大组织致力于满足用户需求的承诺。
