Ocean Data Systems is a partner of Mitsubishi Electric and strives to support their products as best we can.  With that in mind, we’ve recently added SLMP (Seamless Message Protocol), a feature of the CC-Link IE Field network that allows users to vertically integrate field devices with controllers to information systems. Standard Ethernet-compatible devices such as barcode readers and RFID scanners can be easily connected using SLMP over TCP/IP.  This protocol enables Dream Report to connect to both Mitsubishi and the world of vendors that already support SLMP protocol.

SLMP is a simple client/server type protocol that communicates with Ethernet devices from third-party vendors, and other data connected  to CC-Link IE. Any device connected in this manner can be accessed across the network. Similarly, Dream Report can access all other devices connected to the CC-Link IE field network by specifying the network and station number of the communication target.

Ocean Data Systems is a member of the CLPA (CC-Link Partner Association).  Link to a list of products and vendors that support CC-Link.
