AS-i Controllers and Gateways
AS-i controllers provide direct connection of AS-i to higher level bus systems including EtherNet/IP, Profibus and DeviceNet. AS-i backplane masters provide direct connection of AS-i to most PLCs. An integrated PLC allows the AS-i controllers to also be used as a supplementary or independent control system.
