AS-i/AS-i Couplers – For easy and flexible data exchange between two controllers

AS-i/AS-i couplers from Bihl+Wiedemann are the ideal solution for exchanging AS-i data between two controllers, for example to report operating conditions. Depending on the requirement between 4 and 248 bits can be sent bi-directionally. Transmission over the robust AS-i network means taking advantage of all the AS-Interface benefits.
