Compact AS-i modules save space in the control cabinet

23.11.2015

SPS IPC Drives 2015, Hall 11

  • New and extremely compact series of AS-i SlimLine compact modules in degree of protection IP20 for the control cabinet and distributed control boxes
  • Digital and fail-safe I/O (input/output) modules in 17.5 and 22.5 millimeter slimline design
  • Half the width of the previous devices: 17.5 mm variants currently the narrowest AS-i modules on the market
  • Practice-oriented functions simplify and expand the application options

Siemens has developed extremely compact I/O (input/output) modules for AS-Interface with widths of just 17.5 and 22.5 millimeters. The new AS-i SlimLine compact modules are just half the width of the predecessor devices, and they save space in the control cabinet and in distributed control boxes.

They possess new, practice-oriented functions, such as device connectors and switchable sensor supply, that surpass the previous functional scope. The 17.5 mm variants are currently the slimmest AS-i modules on the market.

The new series of AS-i SlimLine compact modules in degree of protection IP20 encompasses digital I/O modules as well as ASIsafe modules with safe inputs. It replaces the previous S22.5 and S45 SlimLine modules. The new AS-i SlimLine compact modules supplement the product range of AS-i field modules and they are suitable for initial installation, servicing, or whenever a change or expansion is made to your plant.

The new AS-i SlimLine compact modules from Siemens are available with 4DI/4DO in 22.5-mm design, and with 4DI or 2F-DI in the especially slim 17.5 mm enclosure. The digital outputs are available as solid-state and relay outputs. Sensors and actuators, as well as the AS-Interface bus cable, are connected by means of removable screw terminals or push-in spring-type terminals.

The optional device connector enables simple connection of several modules with the AS-i bus cable and the 24 V DC power supply. This additionally reduces the wiring effort and supports users in fast, error-free assembly. LEDs on the front of the new compact modules enable fast diagnostics on-site.

All devices of the new AS-i SlimLine compact series have a switchable sensor supply. Depending on requirements, the sensors can be supplied with power either from the AS-i bus cable, or from the 24 V DC power supply Uaux. Since the wiring of the sensors is independent of the choice of power supply, users can decide simply according to the application.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
