AS components are interconnected with this special system cable. With the AS interface, the cable assembly from the control system to the sensor/actuator is not needed. The AS interface is the field bus system that transmits both data and power in one single cable. With fast contacting in penetration technique, the possibility of errors in cabling is largely reduced. The special outer jacket provides protection against oil, grease, and refrigerant lubricants, and the cable is therefore even suitable for applications in wet surroundings, in machinery and plant construction, as well as in the machine tool and automotive industry. The PUR variant is suitable for heavy-duty industrial environments.
