ASi-5 was presented for the first time at the SPS IPC Drives, which took place end of November this year. The latest AS-Interface generation clearly enables faster transmission of larger data volumesand effortless integration of intelligent IO-Link sensors. For instance, ASi-5 enables fast transmission of up to 32-byte IO-Link data over ASi.
Compatible with all ASi generations
You can also easily connect additional ASi-5 slaves to an existing system with ASi-3 slaves – for example in system sections with increased requirements for speed, data volume or I/O density. All you need for this is just the new ASi-5/ASi-3 gateway. Without ASi-5 slaves, it works exactly as our earlier gateways, since the ASi-3 part remains unchanged, making it ideal as a replacement to existing ASi-3 gateways.
