The Bihl+Wiedemann AS-i Master for ControlLogix of Allen-Bradley has 2 AS-i masters according to the new specification. A fast and easy commissioning can be accomplished with the use of two pushbuttons and the display. 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 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.
Commissioning and monitoring
The AS-i Master can be commissioned respectively programmed 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.
