Structure of Authentication Class B Devices and
System configuration used when "Authentication Class B Only" is selected from "Connection Device Information" under
"Basic Settings" in the engineering tool.
The modules on CC-Link IE TSN and TSN hub are authentication Class B devices.
Connection with modules on CC-Link IE TSN only
The network is configured in line topology. TSN hub is not required.
When an error occurs in a slave station, the stations connected after the faulty station will be disconnected.
The network is configured in star topology via TSN hub. This allows devices to be added easily.
Even when an error occurs in a slave station, data link can be continued with the stations that are operating normally.
■Coexistence of line and star topologies
Line and star topology are mixed.
