The AS-i Masters with serial interface and with Mini-PLC serve to control an AS-i circuit as a stand-alone device or can be connectedto a host via the serial interface. All AS-i functions can b called via the serial interface. The AS-i data can be transmitted by using the B+W protocol with a high transfer rate. With a rate of 57600 Baud short cycle times for the data exchange via the serial interface can be realized. There are AS-i Masters without mini-PLC on offer as well.
The AS-i Masters already fulfil the AS-i Specification 2.1. This means:
Up to 62 AS-i slaves can be connected to each AS-i network.
The transfer of analog signals via AS-i is integrated in the Masters.
All further functions of the new specification as e. g. the diagnosis of the AS-i peripheral fault are implemented.
The AS-i Masters according to AS-i Specification 2.0 are still available.
Diagnostics, which go far beyond the standard diagnostics facilitate the simple detection of the occassionally occuring configuration errors and further irritations towards the AS-i communication. So in case of an error the down time of machines can be minimized or you can initiate preventive maintenance. Two sorts of housing The devices can be delivered in a housing for cabinet mounting or in a field housing in IP65. The gateways for cabinet mounting can be chosen to link one or two AS-i networks to the host. The handling of AS-i Control in IP65 is identically with AS-i Control in IP20 with RS 485 interface. The high protection category IP65 makes the device suitable for applications in the extreme industrial environments frequently encountered in the field. AS-I is connected using the penetration technique of EMS (Electromechanical Interface). RS 485 is connected with heavy gauge terminals and cage clamp terminal blocks.
The AS-i Masters with serial interface can be commissioned respectively programmed with the help of the software "AS-i Control Tools".
Commissioning, debugging and setting up of the AS-i parameters can be accomplished without software just with the use of two push-buttons, the display and the LEDs directly at the device.
