What is an interface protocol?

What is an interface protocol?

An interface protocol is a specification that defines how data is delivered and interpreted. An example of this is when two pieces of separately manufactured equipment can effectively communicate with each other without having previously discussed their specific engineering concepts.

What is Profinet protocol?

PROFINET is the world’s most advanced Industrial Ethernet solution. It is a communication protocol to exchange data between controllers and devices. It is a communication protocol to exchange data between controllers and devices. Controllers can be PLCs, DCSs, or PACs.

What is ASi node?

The ASi nodes are typically connected directly to the ASi cable using piercing technology and thus connected to the ASi master. This is a two-core, unshielded cable through which power as well as functional and safety signals are transmitted. It eliminates the need for complex parallel wiring.

What is the purpose of the as-I interface protocol?

AS-Interface (AS-i) is the simplest of the industrial networking protocols used in PLC, DCS and PC-based automation systems and is designed for connecting binary (ON/OFF) devices, such as actuators and sensors, in discrete manufacturing and process applications using only a single cable.

What is the full name of an AS-Interface?

The AS-Interface is usually shortened to AS-i, and its full title is A ctuator- S ensor I nterface. It is a simple networking system for devices found out in the field. Learn what an AS-Interface is below.

Which is the international standard for AS Interface?

AS-Interface is an ‘open’ technology supported by a multitude of automation equipment vendors. The AS-Interface has been an international standard according to IEC 62026-2 since 1999. AS-Interface is a networking alternative to the hard wiring of field devices.

How is as-interface used in the process industry?

Since that time, it has become the de facto standard for discrete sensors in process industries throughout the world. AS-Interface may be used in hazardous process environments using explosion proof, tray cable, nonincendive and for nonincendive wiring protection concepts.
