New products for AS-Interface

(PresseBox) (Nuremberg, ) Siemens is expanding its product portfolio for AS-Interface to include new devices. These include the new AS-i V3 safety monitor and associated asimon V3 software as well as the Sirius 3RA6 compact starter with AS-i connection.

With the new V3 safety monitor, users can safely control an actuator or actuator group via the AS-i network, thus allowing safety-related, distributed switching of, for example, valves or motor starters in parallel with a second enabling circuit. The new device also supports connection of two AS-i networks without additional modules. The new associated software asimon V3 has a pixel-graphics editor for safety logic, making operation easier. Improvements have also been made to the functionality of asimon V3 with, for example, filtering of brief, single-channel interruptions in the sensor circuit.

The new Sirius 3RA6 compact starter can be modified for use as an AS-I enabled starter without tools and without any other wiring overhead. This is possible with an AS-i mounting module in A/B design and thus guarantees direct transfer of diagnostics signals and statuses to the controller. The same module is used to switch a direct starter or a reversing starter. Using a second version, users can also connect safetyrelated switching devices such as limit switches, and thus safely shut down the compact starter.

Siemens is expanding its product portfolio of devices for AS-Interface. These include the new AS-i V3 safety monitor and associated asimon software as well as the Sirius 3RA6 compact starter with AS-i connection.
