Welcome to AS-Interface, the efficient, easy, and worldwide standardized bus system for the lower field level.
With AS-Interface, IO-Link can be connected effectively and, above all, cost-effectively. This makes this modern alternative to the analogue current interface network-compatible. The new ASi-5 technology makes this connection even more powerful. The current German YouTube video informs. www.youtube.com/watch
The Metso Corporation generates customer benefits using AS-Interface and is welcome as a new member of the user organization.
More than 200 engineers and technicians attended the AS-Interface presentation on the opening day at Week of Control and Automation in Brazil.
During the general meeting mid-December 2019 in Gelnhausen, Germany, the project managers of the ASi-5 development collaboration, Dr. Thomas Sebastiany and Bernhard Wiedemann, officially handed the ASi-5 specification over to AS-International. The specification is now available to all members.
Successful communication always follows a clear path. AS-Interface takes this quite literally. It uses a single reverse polarity protected two-conductor cable, carrying power and data, to connect sensors and actuators to the control system of your automation network.
Compared to the typical parallel wiring, AS-Interface’s advantage is its low wiring efforts and reduced hardware deployment. The reliable piercing technology as well as the intuitive and flexible device connection result in a significantly faster installation. Additionally, the system offers easy configuration options, leading to reduced start-up efforts and - in case of system faults – guarantees fast diagnostics and trouble shooting.
In short: AS-Interface reduces costs, while simultaneously increasing system performance.
