AS-i_Pilot: the smallest AS-Interface master of the world?

On a PCB with the dimensions 34 x 65 x 10mm the AS-i_Pilot from ICS is probably the smallest full-scale AS-Interface M-4 Master of the world. Alternatively we offer it in a housing with the outer dimensions of 70 x 40 x 28mm for DIN-rail mounting. The AS-i_Pilot has -- besides the connection to the AS-Interface network -- a micro-USB-interface that emulates a serial interface for the exchange of process and diagnosis data and for the control of the master and the network.

  • Serial Interface (up to 500kBit/s) controllable with simple ASCII commands and responses.
  • Unified and simple access to binary, digital and analogue data (also serial data strings of up to 32 bytes length and safety codes).
  • All commands to fully configure a network.
  • Numerous diagnosis information available (e.g. slave status, profile and analog configuration, error counter).
  • Directly controllable via terminal programs, measurement control-, simulation-, and soft PLC programs ("plug & AS-i").
  • Ideal complement to Raspberry Pi Applications.

The Duck Race at the "Seehasenfest" in Friedrichshafen on July 13, 2019

On Saturday of the "Seehasenfest" at Friedrichshafen (on the shore of the Lake of Constance) the famous yearly Duck Race took place again. 5000 rubber ducks raced along a track that was bordered by oil barriers. At the end of the track was a raft which contained the RFID readers that detected the RFID tags with which every duck was equipped. Thus the list of the winning ducks was registered automatically. ICS GmbH sponsored the technical equipment.
