Actuator-sensor interface for gearmotors

AS-Interface with improved diagnostic capabilities is now standard with MOVIMOT C gearmotors; the interface provides failsafe connectivity under challenging ambient conditions and links easily to higher-level fieldbus and Ethernet networks.

Features & benefits

  • Designed for realtime communications at the sensor or actuator level
  • Easily connects sensors and actuators to distributed control systems using master and slave topologies; up to 31 slaves can be connected to a drive system incorporating multiple gearmotors
  • Maximum communications cycle time is 5 ms for 31 stations and maximum line length is 100 m, or 300 m with a repeater
