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.
