Our Highlights

We will show you ASi-5, which is the latest innovation stage of AS-Interface (ASi), a globally standardised fieldbus system for the first automation level. ASi connects sensors and actuators with a controller via a single two-core flat cable. The yellow ASi cable transmits power and data at the same time.


The proven main benefits of ASi are, among others, less wiring, free choice of topology and cost-efficient integration of safety on the same infrastructure. In addition, compared to other fieldbus systems, ASi needs no connectors for data and power integration. How would you like to profit from the faster transmission of data volumes? We will show you new possibilities with AS-Interface.
