As-interface is an easy to connect industrial communication standard.
The Pepperl +fuch Master As-interface units have in built diagnostics, so if a module is damaged, you can quickly swap it out and the master will recognise that the node has been replaced.
On a single As-Interface.
You can have up to 64 node half nodes
A half node can have up to 4 inputs and 3 outputs.
A full node can have 4 inputs and 4 outputs.
A total number of 32 full nodes can be used, or a mixture of both full nodes and half nodes.
Channel numbers 1-32 and Channels 1b-32b are used to address each node.
When a full node has taken Channel "1" then 1b can not be used.
As-interface can slowly be expanded around your factory, and does not have to be integrated in one go, this allows for controlled expansion, while keeping costs down.
The wiring can be configured in any topographical format, limited to 100 meters, or up to two repeater can be used up to 600 metres if wired in a straight line.
Some As-interface master controllers have dual As-interface bus systems allowing for 128 nodes and 100 meters in both directions.
With in-built and on-board safety rated system, E-stops and remote safety relays can also be connected , having all your safety and I/O in one systems reduces costs and installation time significantly.
As-interface is also great for OEM's as it can be rapidly deployed, keeping down labour costs, as there is only one 2 wire cable to run.
or two cables to run if you need to power 24v high current devices, etc motors and heavy duty solenoids.
We have As-interface Library's ready to go, to interface with the Delta Plc.
Up to 4 channels of analog inputs in one node, either Temperature, Voltage or current inputs are available.
Just one screw is used to clamp to the As-interface cable in the device that is pictured.
Start Stop buttons
Illuminated push buttons, are easy to add along your product line.
