Control and Communication System Profile CSP+
We have released CSP+, a description language specification which enables integration of engineering tools and manual-less and program-less description of device profiles.
Control and Communication System Profile CSP+ is a specification which describes the data necessary for the set-up, operation and maintenance of CC-Link Family-compatible devices. Previously, CC-Link System Profile (CSP) was used for the description of this information for products connecting via CC-Link. However, since the CSP specification was formulated, the necessity for a profile specification offering a higher level of descriptivity has increased.
1. Increased complexity of functions
Previously, most devices were single-function with few settings, but the number of high-performance devices capable of employing complex settings and control has recently increased.
2. Diversification of the applications of engineering tools
The uses of engineering tools have diversified to encompass applications including diagnostics and energy management in addition to device input and output and parameter-setting.
3. Diversification of networks
The number of protocols for the connection of various devices to networks has increased, with CC-Link IE Field Network, SLMP, etc. making their appearance in addition to CC-Link.
Against this background, CSP+ has been newly defined as a profile specification for CC-Link Family-compatible devices.
