Communication & Networking The Actuator Sensor-interface (AS-interface) is the simplest and most cost-effective of the PLC-based industrial-networking protocols. This type of field bus is primarily intended to be used to control sensors and actuators at distances of up to 100 meters. LONWORKS is a leading open solution for building and home automation, industrial, transportation and public utility control networks. IDEC provides a variety of compact LONWORKS communication terminals containing SNVTs to enable cost-effective design and implementation of multi-vendor control systems. LonWorks SX5L
The SX5L I/O modules feature removeable finger-safe spring up terminals blocks to protect against electric shocks and save wiring time. All modules are packed in a compact housing 75x132x48mm. AS-interface MicroSmart AS-i
IDEC offers a plug-in AS-interface master module for the MicroSmart PLC that is easy to configure; it can also connect to up to 62 slaves. Configuring and slave monitoring can be done using LED indicators and pushbuttons on the front panel as well as WindLDR software. PS2R
The PS2R AS-interface power supply is available in 73W and 145W. The slim and rugged design makes the PS2R the most reliable power source for your AS-interface network.
