The Fieldline Extension AS-Interface gateway for PROFIBUS DP FLX ASI MA PB SF enables the simple integration of an AS-Interface network in a PROFIBUS DP system. The device has a rugged, high-grade steel housing with the IP20 degree of protection, and is intended for use in the control cabinet.
The gateway enables the operation of AS-Interface slaves with expanded addressing and is specified according to the AS-Interface specification 3.0.
The downward compatibility with AS-i slaves of older specifications is also given.
The connected AS-i slaves can be easily addressed through the AS-Interface gateway using the "Mode" and "Set" keys as well as a 7-segment display.
