The CC‑Link Partner Association (CLPA) is the organisation of manufacturers of CC‑Link compatible products and users of CC‑Link technology and was formed in 2000. The CLPA oversees and manages the CC‑Link specifications and promotes the worldwide adoption of CC‑Link technology for network communications in industrial automation.
The installed base now exceeds eight million nodes with over a million sold annually, and CC‑Link is the largest open network in Asia. The CC‑Link Partner Association works with its members to promote their CC‑Link compatible products throughout the world via its web sites, products catalogues, at trade fairs and will press activities.
Six regional offices and four European promotion partner offices promote CC‑Link technology and provide a wide range of support services for CLPA members in their regions. CLPA has offices in Germany, UK, North America, Japan, China, South Korea, Taiwan and Singapore.
