"4 A, changeable":

The internal protection is realized via changeable 4 A fuses (slow-blow) for AS-i and AUX. At each M12 connection ≤4 A are available.


"1 A, self-resetting":

The internal protection is realized via self-resetting 1 A fuses for AS-i and AUX. At each M12 connection ≤1 A are available.


"8 A, slow-blow fuse + 1 A, self-resetting":

The internal protection is realized via one 8 A slow-blow fuse for AUX and via one self-resetting 1 A fuse for AS-i. At each M8 connection (AUX) ≤6 are available, at each M8 connection (AS-i) ≤1 A are available.

Connection

Under normal conditions (no bus termination or repeater), the permissible total length of the AS-i segment is max. 100 m. The calculation should take into consideration that the length of the connection cable (round cable) for each connected passive distributor must be doubled.

In the case of the active distributors (AS-i slaves) however only the one AS-i profile cable is counted.

Inputs Safety, SIL 3, Cat. 4

An externally connected relay (contactor) can be connected via a feedback loop to the Safety Monitor for monitoring purposes.

Inputs digital, EDM
Outputs digital Safety signal inputs

inputs are supplied by AS-i or by AUX (auxiliary 24 V power). If supplied by AS-i, inputs shall not be connected to earth or to external potential.

Input voltage (sensor supply)

Electronic outputs are supplied by AS-i or by AUX (auxiliary 24 V power). If supplied by AS-i, outputs shall not be connected to earth or to external potential.

For relay outputs the relay contacts are initiated from AS-i. The load circuit is powered externally as specified in the data sheet.

Under normal conditions (no bus termination or repeater), the permissible total length of the AS-i segment is max. 100 m. The calculation should take into consideration that the length of the connection cable (round cable) for each connected passive distributor must be doubled.

In the case of the active distributors (AS-i slaves) however only the one AS-i profile cable is counted.

Profile cable connection

the connection to AS-i as well to AUX (auxiliary 24 V power) is made via yellow resp. black AS-i profile cable with piercing technology or via M12 socket (in IP20 via clamps).

AS-i connection

AB Slave (max. 62 AB Slaves/AS-i network), 2 AB Slaves (max. 31 modules with 2 AB Slaves), Single Slaves (max. 31 Single Slaves/AS-i network), mixed use allowed.
For modules with two slaves the second slave is turned off as long as the first slave is addressed to address "0".
Upon request, slaves are available with specific AS-i Slave profiles.
