"Single Master":
1 AS-i network, 1 AS-i Master.

"Double Master":
2 AS-i networks, 2 AS-i Masters.

"Optional AS-i Safety coupling circuit":
2 AS-i networks, 1 AS-i Master.

2 AS-i networks, 2 AS-i Masters
1 power supply, 1 gateway for 2 AS-i networks, inexpensive power supplies

"yes, max. 4 A/AS-i network":
Cost-effective power for 2 AS-i networks with 1 power supply (optionally supply of multiple Single Gateways by 1 power supply).

Operation with short cable lengths with standard 24 V power supply possible.


"no, max. 8 A/AS-i network, redundant supply":
1 AS-i power supply per AS-i network. Gateway is powered in normal operation from one of the two AS-i power supplies.

Should one AS-i power supply fail, switching to the other AS-i power supply allows all the diagnostics functions to be maintained and the unaffected AS-i network continues to operate.

"no, max. 8 A/AS-i network":

1 AS-i power supply per AS-i network.

yes, max. 4 A/AS-i network
Diagnostic and configuration interface

"USB":

Access to AS-i Master and Safety Monitor with Bihl+Wiedemann proprietary software by using the USB interface.

"Ethernet fieldbus"

Access to AS-i Master and Safety Monitor with Bihl+Wiedemann software by using the Ethernet fieldbus interface.

"Ethernet fieldbus + Ethernet diagnostic":

Access to AS-i Master and Safety Monitor with Bihl+Wiedemann software by using the Ethernet diagnostic interface or Ethernet fieldbus interface.

"Ethernet diagnostic":

Access to AS-i Master and Safety Monitor with Bihl+Wiedemann software by using the Ethernet diagnostic interface.

"Ethernet diagnostic + Modbus TCP diagnostic":

Access to AS-i Master and Safety Monitor with Bihl+Wiedemann software or via Modbus TCP by using the Ethernet diagnostic interface.

For a full-fledged Modbus TCP fieldbus interface use one of our Modbus TCP gateways in stainless steel or Modbus TCP gateways with integrated safety monitor.

"Ethernet fieldbus + RS 232":

Access to AS-i Master and Safety Monitor with Bihl+Wiedemann software by using the Ethernet fieldbus interface or by using an adapter cable via RS 232 interface.


"RS 232":

Access to AS-i Master and Safety Monitor with Bihl+Wiedemann software by using an adapter cable via RS 232 interface.

Ethernet fieldbus + Ethernet diagnostic
Recognition of duplicate AS-i addresses

Detects whether the same address has been assigned to two AS-i slaves. Frequent error when using a handheld addressing device.

yes
AS-i fault detector

Checks the AS-i line for interference effects such as noise, external voltages, ...

yes
Programming in C

Using a C-program offers the possibility to run mini-PLC functions with a gateway.

optional
