CJ-series Controller Link Units CJ1W-CLK CSM_CJ1W-CLK_DS_E_6_3 New Controller Link Units, Now with 4,000 Send Words • The Controller Link is an FA network that can send and receive large amounts of data easily and at high speed. The Controller Link supports data links that enable sharing data between PLCs and computers and a message service that enables sending and receiving data whenever required. • Systems can be flexibly built by using Repeater Units to enable T-branches, long-distance wiring, and converting part of the network to optical cable. CJ1W-CLK23 Features • Large-capacity data links are easily achieved without programming simply by setting data link tables. • Up to 20,000 *1 send/receive words can be set per node for Units (up to 62,000 words for Boards). • Data links can be performed with up to 4,000 *2 words per node while ensuring data concurrency. • User-set data link tables can be changed while data links are operating. *3 • Errors for the entire system can be monitored by using error diagnosis support software and a variety of status flags. *1. Supported for unit version 1.2 or later. *2. CJ1W-CLK23 and [email protected] are supported. *3. Supported for CJ1W-CLK23, [email protected], and models ending with "-V1".

In that case, however, build the system using the specifications for the old models. The data link send/receive words can be separately set to their maximums when new and old models are mixed. • Repeater Units can be used to expand a Wired Controller Link Network. For Wired-to-optical Repeater Units, always use a set of two (1:1). Optical Ring Controller Link Units and Boards cannot be connected to the optical cable section between Repeater Units. • Connect Repeater Units so that there are no more than two stages between any two nodes. One set of two Wire-to-Optical Repeater Units is counted as one stage.
