Savings of up to 50% with small machines and systems
With the AS-i Power24V innovation, Siemens now offers an automation expansion which is particularly suitable for compact machines (e.g. machine tools) and applications inside the control cabinet. The utilization of already employed 24V power supply units in connection with a data decoupling module facilitates the cost-favorable realization of AS-i networks with expansions of up to 50 m.
With the help of the data decoupling module, data and energy can be realized on a single line in the AS-i network. Even several data decoupling modules for multiple AS-i networks can be connected to one power supply unit – which results in an additional cost advantage.
Advantages at a glance:
Cost and space savings thanks to elimination of the 30V AS-i power supply unit
Efficient utilization of one power supply unit for several AS-i networks
Increased degree of standardization in small systems
Reduced getting-started costs for AS-Interface
Utilization of present AS-i network advantages, e.g. high data quality, extended diagnostics and maintenance information, integrated ASIsafe technology, unlimited number of connectable slaves
