Applications

Automation is colorful. This is literally true looking at the colorful display of manufacturers in the field of automation. Furthermore, the variety of tasks is more diverse than in any other field of engineering. Transportation, building automation, process automation, factory automation: Which single technology can cover this diversity of different tasks? It’s easy – with AS-Interface.

The potential of AS-Interface can be best demonstrated by looking at some applications. Read about the applications - real success stories written by AS-interface

By the way: We invite all users, manufacturers und institutions to tell us about their successful AS-Interface applications: in real life or tested in laboratories. In transportation, building automation, process automation and factory automation. In green, in yellow or in red. This is the way to show all the universal and colorful possibilities when using AS-Interface. By writing to info@as-interface.net you can share your experiences with us and the AS-Interface community.

 


ASi-5: Future-oriented automation in process technology


Like most, the process industry is under intense cost pressure. For years, AS-Interface has been succeeding in reducing installation costs. The introduction of ASi-5 technology provided additional features to increase plant performance significantly.

High-Speed Baggage Handling System

Controlled via the Modern KE5 ASi-3 Gateway and with RFID Technology

By replacing the old stainless steel gateways, many IIoT benefits can be taken advantage of. This is an important reason for being awarded this airport project, in which several hundred gateways are in use. Precise positioning and 100 % reliable detection via RFID lay additional foundations for success. The gateway, which is only 38 mm wide, boasts a compact design and cost efficiency with a high-resolution external color display. Bridged spring terminals enable UL-compliant installation, even up to 2 x 8 A on the dual gateway. The highlight, however, is the parallel diagnostics function via the REST API protocol.

„Factory 56“ of the Mercedes-Benz Group
ASi-5 makes picking system unique

The development of modern and intuitive picking systems has been a segment of SAFELOG GmbH since the company was founded. A particular focus is on pick-by-light and put-to-light technology. This technology ensures the highest picking performance while actively avoiding picking errors. This is partly possible through ASi-5 communication technology, connecting the control unit with a touchscreen to up to 96 compartments via a unique two-conductor cable. This solution is used in Mercedes-Benz Group AG’s so-called Factory 56 in Sindelfingen.

ASi-5 at SPAX: Future safe solutions


Not only customers of SPAX, the world’s leading manufacturer of screws and connection technology, rely on durability, safety, quality and user friendliness. The company itself also sees these as factors which are just as elemental as future security – especially when it comes to the machines used to produce their products. Not least for these reasons the internal mechanical engineering department at SPAX, which maintains and renews the production machines - especially presses and rollers - decided for ASi and ASi-5 solutions and Bihl+Wiedemann as partner.

AS-Interface in The chemical Industry
Production monitoring in EX Zone 0, acetone vapor

Cellulose is a versatile material, the best-known and most common material as foundation for paper production. However, cellulose fibers are also suitable for other products, for example, as a raw material for filters. To be used as a filter, the cellulose requires a pretreatment that also involves the use of the highly explosive acetone. Continuous production diagnostics in this environment is difficult, but possible with so-called Namur sensors. This plant in the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo  uses about 1000 of these sensors (EXi).

Robust wiring for special requirements
Camembert manufacturers have been relying on ASi for more than 15 years

It is not for nothing that the food industry has the largest range of AS-i integrated actuators. Among other things, many process valve manufacturers have recognized the advantages of AS-i and integrated them into their products. But what would these excellent solutions be without a reliable infrastructure? In an environment where cleaning is carried out several times a day, even simple flat cable taps and distribution boxes bear a great responsibility.

Production logistics
From Zero to a Hundred

Why did warehouse logistics leader KNAPP change the communication technology for its entire range of production logistics to AS-Interface practically overnight? To increase efficiency and productivity? To decrease assembly time during on-site installation? Or because it allows simple and discrete integration of wiring into system components?
