Optimistic for the future
Within the scope of digitization, the clear goal was formulated to integrate operating devices with AS-Interface even more easily. Johan Persson, CEO of Celpia: "We have made a very successful start with the Cabinet Modules product line.
We make things simpler, safer and better. Users can look forward to a wide range of product developments. Read more:
The new ASiMAG, new products and more
The new german AS-Interface magazine is published. The issue contains product innovations, information about ASi-5 and new AS-Interface manufacturers.
The cancellation of the Hannover Fair due to the Corona Pandemic was not known at the time of going to press. Please ignore the information about the July date in the magazine.
With more data width, fit for new automation tasks
The new technology ASi-5 offers many new opportunities. The fundamental change is the form of data transmission and the resulting change in data width. Learn more in the current German video youtu.be/Qhu4rxZR89s.
In principle, all improvements of the system are based on these changes. Not only more complex devices can be addressed, but also the diagnosis of the system and many mores has been significantly improved.

Use AS-Interface wiring advantages for IO-Link
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. youtu.be/JJbIGzlYeWs

AS-International: ASi-5 specification now available
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.
Through the next level of innovation ASi-5, AS-Interface is ready for the future and ready to master the challenges of digitalization. ASi-5 was developed to be the ideal data shuttle for digitalization, Industry 4.0, and the IOT, while keeping the proven simplicity of the AS-Interface system: Maintaining downward compatibility within the system as well as preserving already existing advantages like the simple wiring process and a topology-free network were core objectives during the development of ASi-5. This system update offers even more power and functionality: extended diagnostics, greater data width, shorter cycle times, more users and the option to easily integrate IO-Link.
Simultaneously with the technology project, an ASi-5 addressing app was designed. This app allows easy and comfortable addressing of ASi-5 components via smart phone or tablet.
After multiple years developing ASi-5, the project is now finalized, tested, approved, and already part of the portfolio of several development partners. From now on, all AS-International Association members can use ASi-5 technology and the ASi-5 ASIC in their own development projects, and thus profit from the advanced technology. AS-Interface continues to guarantee compatibility with the ASi components of all other manufacturers.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank the ASi-5 development partners for the excellent cooperation and the mutual trust.
