AS Interface Market: Introduction

In today’s world, due to technological advancements in industrial solutions AS Interface acts a networking alternative to the wiring of devices on field. AS Interface is a globally standardized industrial networking solution that links sensors and actuators to a controller over a common data transmission path. It is an open technology supported by various automation vendors and leading manufacturers of sensors and actuators worldwide. 

The construction of AS Interface consists of four components which are, the network master in form of a gateway, number of network slaves which are input and output modules, a power supply to enable communication between master and slaves, and the yellow AS-Interface cable for wiring infrastructure. The master with gate-way function controls the system and initiates data exchange, manages communication with the slaves, with each slave having a unique address and informs the PLC, making it a deterministic networking solution.

AS Interface is a time and money saving networking solution which connects all sensors and actuators, with simple handling process, low maintenance and installation effort. It is majorly used in automation applications, packaging machines, conveyor control, elevators and production lines in industries.

AS Interface Market: Drivers and Restraints

Rise in adoption of process automation and safety standards in process industry, simple and quick installation of AS-Interface system with a minimum number of cables, safer transmission of data and power compared to wired devices and support from the government for the adoption of industrial automation in various industries are some factors driving the growth of AS Interface market.

However, factors such as impact on infrastructure related investments due to declining prices of oil and gas restrain the growth of AS Interface Market.
