System integration of AS-Interface
What is needed to get started with AS-Interface?
The master, a power supply unit as well as various standard participants form the basis of every AS-i system. Non-safe participants are also possible (mixed operation). The master ensures data exchange with the participants by means of cyclic polling. The AS-Interface power supply units supply the participants and sensors with energy.
