Addressing of ASi-3 nodes
With ASi-3, there are 31 ASi addresses available, whereby each address may only be allocated once. A distinction is made between standard addressing and extended addressing. The addressing mode of ASi participants is determined by the manufacturer. With standard addressing, each ASi participant reserves a full address (1..31). With extended addressing, each address can be reserved by two ASi participants (1A..31A, 1B..31B). It is not possible to address an ASi node with standard addressing and an ASi participant with extended addressing on the same address, e.g. 3 and 3A or 3B.
Addressing of ASi-5 nodes
With ASi-5, the nodes are assigned an ordering number starting from 1. The numbering takes place sequentially.
