ASi/ASi couplers from Bihl+Wiedemann are the ideal solution for exchanging ASi 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 ASi network means taking advantage of all the AS-Interface benefits.

ASi by definition requires no shielding and is therefore ideal combined with the ASi/ASi coupler for data exchange between different controllers using slip rings.

The ASi/ASi couplers enable data exchange between two controllers regardless of the fieldbus systems used .
