CompactLogix and MicroLogix from Allen-Bradley are programmable logic controllers developed by Rockwell Automation which can be used for a variety of applications.
The Bihl+Wiedemann AS-i Master connects a CompactLogix processor or a MicroLogix 1500 to an AS-i network. Fast, easy set up into PLC backplane by the help of the new AS-i Master. AS-i I/O data and status information is mapped into the PLC processor’s I/O data.
Diagnostics, which go far beyond the standard diagnostics facilitate the simple detection of the occasionally occurring 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.
Commissioning and monitoring
The Bihl+Wiedemann AS-i master BWU1416 for CompactLogix and MicroLogix 1500 is a type 1769 module. It is suitable for use with any CompactLogix and MicroLogix Controller that supports type 1769 modules. The AS-i Master can be commissioned respectively parametrized with the help of the software "AS-i Control Tools". Commissioning, debugging and setting up the system without the software can only be accomplished with the use of two push-buttons, the display and the LEDs directly on the system.
