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.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
