Hilscher Receives CC-Link IE Field Network Basic Slave Certification

Hilscher North America's netX 90 system-on-a-chip (SoC) and netRAPID 90, a netX chip carrier, have received the CC-Link IE Field Network Basic slave conformance certificate from the CC-Link Partner Association (CLPA).

This certification enables the netX 90 and netRAPID 90 to be implemented as slaves in simple field devices on CC-Link IE networks. CC-Link IE Field Network Basic is a general-purpose Ethernet protocol that facilitates easy use and development of small-scale devices that do not require high-speed control capabilities. This 100-Mbit/s protocol is an easy entry into the CC-Link IE technology ecosystem for developing field devices.

“Official certification from the CLPA for both the netX 90 and netRAPID 90 further strengthens our multi-protocol capability. It also enables device manufacturers to easily enter the Asian market with our latest netX 90 technology and products,” says Philip Marshall, Chief Operating Officer of Hilscher North America.

Moxa Attains World's First Computer With IEC 62443-4-2 Host Device Certification

With the release of its newest Industrial Linux 3 (MIL3) platform, Moxa has attained ISA/IEC 62442-4-2 certification for its UC-8200 Series computerIEC 62443-4-2 certification ensures that the UC-8200 computers incorporate an advanced suite of secure-by-design hardware and software features to protect data and infrastructure against the rising threat of cyberattacks.

“The IEC 62443-4-2 certified UC-8200 Series computer makes it faster, easier, and more cost-effective to integrate IIoT applications by providing a secure platform that has already been tested and validated. Without this certified platform, asset owners and system integrators would need to spend a significant amount of time testing and validating the security of the computing platform and its components before integrating their applications,” said George Hsiao, Product Manager of Industrial Embedded Computer at Moxa. 

Built around a Cortex-A7 dual-core processor and offering flexible interfacing options, the computers serve as reliable and secure gateways for data acquisition and processing at field sites as well as versatile communications platforms for many other large-scale deployments.

The UC-8200 Series comes with a security-hardening guide to help maintain it throughout its entire lifecycle—from integration and installation to operation, maintenance, and decommissioning. It also includes a security diagnostics utility that allows customers to confirm that the computer remains compliant during the integration stage.
