AS-Interface Safety at Work (SaW) is the first safety bus system based upon the open standard of AS-International. Safety components such as Emergency Stop command devices, safety switches, solenoid interlocks or safety light curtains are simply connected to the yellow AS-Interface cable. For the evaluation of the safety signals a "Safety Monitor" is merely added to the AS-Interface system.
Design and mode of operation:
AS-Interface Standard in accordance with EN 50295
With the integration of AS-Interface SaW the AS-Interface network will continue to operate unchanged. The well known components, like the standard AS-Interface master, the standard power supply as well as the AS-Interface yellow cable will still form the basis of all AS-Interface installations. Therefore an existing machine can easily be equipped with additional AS-i SaW components.
