CS-series FL-net Unit


Connect to Multivendor Controller Networks

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 CS-series PLC can be used to interface communications between Ethernet information networks, OMRON's Controller Link FA network, and DeviceNet field bus.
