Technological Principles

AS-Interface

AS-Interface (ASi) is a globally standardized fieldbus system for the first level of automation. ASi connects sensors and actuators with a controller via a single two-conductor profile cable. The yellow ASi cable transmits power and data at the same time. The main benefits of ASi are, among others, dramatically less wiring, free choice of topology and cost-efficient integration of safety on the same infrastructure. The latest ASi-5 generation can now handle larger data volumes at much higher transmission speeds and it enables intelligent sensors such as IO-Link to be integrated with ease.

ASi Safety at Work

Safety-related aspects play an important role in an increasing number of automation solutions, especially where hazardous movements pose a safety risk to humans. Regulations in this regard are set out, for instance, in the EU Machinery Directive (Directive 2006/42/EC) or in the occupational safety regulations of the respective countries. Thanks to the Safety at Work concept of the AS-Interface, safety-related components, such as safe sensors and actuators as well as safety monitors, can be seamlessly integrated into almost all commonly used automation systems.
