We are an independent part of AS-International (Germany), the nonprofit trade association for AS-Interface (Actuator/Sensor-Interface: ASi) automation technology users worldwide. ASi is an industrial networking solution used in PLC, DCS and PC-based automation systems, designed to connect simple field I/O devices in discrete manufacturing and process applications using a single two-conductor cable: a networking alternative to hard wiring field devices. ASi can be used as a partner network for higher level fieldbus networks (I/O-Link, Profibus, Ethernet), offering remote I/O. As an open technology supported by many automation equipment vendors, ASi is an international standard (IEC 62026-2). With Safety at Work, easily incorporated into an ASi network, ASi provides functional safety in machinery /emergency stop applications. Here, safe and non-safe standard ASi devices can be combined on one network. It is certified up to performance level (PL) e in accordance to EN ISO 13849.
