Easy to implement and gain the IO-Link advantages

CIB machine


The CC-Link IE Field Basic network block is compatible with 100 Mbit Ethernet devices and provides optimal performance in applications where gigabit speed is not required. This makes CC-Link IE Field Basic ideal for meeting requirements of the so-called low automation level, such as bar loading magazines.


CIB productsOur CC-Link IE Field Basic BNI module features IO-Link, giving you the advantages of IO-Link in a CC-Link IE Field Basic network, including device detection to enable automatic transmission of parameter and configuration data.

You benefit from simple integration, faster startup and comprehensive monitoring capabilities based on thorough diagnostics. Altogether, you increase efficiency while significantly lowering overall costs.




  • Adds CC-Link IE compatibility with 100 Mbit Ethernet devices
  • Supports Seamless Message Protocol (SLMP)
  • Flexibly uses data ranges by controlling two to five stations
  • Shows convenient diagnostics using LEDs for port and module status
  • Readied for harsh environments with a rugged IP67 metal housing
