ASi-5 - Great data bandwidth, short cycle times
ASi-5 now enables you to transmit larger data volumes significantly faster. Great data bandwidth and short cycle times – comparable to Ethernet systems – allow for many new possibilities with AS-Interface. For example, ASi-5 now transmits analogue values much faster and it is easier than ever to integrate smart sensors, e.g., IO-Link sensors with up to 32 bytes.
Provides valuable information
More than anything, Industry 4.0 and increasing digitalization require a good data layer. As they supply additional data, smart sensors are becoming more and more important. This makes ASi-5 a key building block for your journey to the digital future, because there was one prevailing reason for evolving AS-Interface: being able to transport more and more data, without restrictions, to where they can yield valuable information. Using the integrated OPC UA servers of our ASi-5/ASi-3 gateways, you can even do this directly and in parallel with the fieldbus.
An affordable alternative
Another benefit of the significantly higher performance: Our new ASi-5 modules enable the cost-efficient and fast collection of numerous inputs and outputs in one place, making the modules an affordable alternative to other fieldbus solutions.
