Fig. 1: Use active distributors to make any components bus-capable
Are you searching for a simple installation and bus system for your plant but don't want to sacrifice the proven sensors, buttons and switches? With active distributors you can make any component AS-Interface (ASi) capable and use them with no restrictions in the simple, robust ASi bus system . Even a sensor without an ASi connection can be integrated into existing ASi networks.
