C-Link (device) commercial license

C-Link is a high-speed CC-Link IE Field Basic device stack. CC-Link is a high-performance industrial network technology that enables devices from numerous manufacturers to communicate resulting in a fast, deterministic control system.

Part #: MW007 Category:


C-Link is a CC-Link IE Field Basic device stack. It uses general Ethernet infrastructure, so no specialised hardware is necessary.

It is written in C and can be run on bare-metal hardware, an RTOS such as rt-kernel, or on Linux or Windows. The main requirement is that the platform can send and receive UDP packets. The C-Link stack is supplied with full sources including a porting layer, and sample application.

The C-Link stack is developed according to protocol version 2.

  • CC-Link Field Basic (device stack)
  • Each device can occupy 1-16 stations
  • Support for SLMP
  • Implements node search and remote set IP address
  • UDP communication
  • Node search and Set IP commands in both device and master.
  • 100 Mbit/s and 1 Gbit/s
  • Device supports disabling of cyclic communication.
  • Master stack supports multiple groups of devices.
  • Master can collect communication statistics for the devices, which is useful for device testing.
  • Bare-metal or OS
  • Porting layer provided
  • Detailed sample applications
