Fieldline Extension and the AS-Interface System
1.1
Fieldline Extension AS-Interface Product Group
Fieldline Extension is an extension of the existing Fieldline product range. AS-Interface
integrates seamlessly into this product range.
m
Easy handling is a key feature of Fieldline Extension AS-Interface devices. Innovative
technologies such as SPEEDCON fast connection technology or tool-free contacting of
FLX AS-i M12 devices to AS-Interface reduce the assembly time by 90%.
co
The input and output devices in the Fieldline Extension AS-Interface product group are
designed for distributed automation tasks in harsh environmental conditions. The devices
meet IP65/67 protection. The direct connection of sensors and actuators in close proximity
to the process is thus easily implemented.
nt
s.
In addition to components with IP65/67 protection, the Fieldline Extension
AS-Interface product group also includes other AS-Interface system components. These
include IP20 AS-Interface masters/gateways, AS-Interface power supply units, and
I/O slaves for use in the control cabinet.
ne
AS-Interface masters are available in two versions.
po
The AS-Interface master for Inline can be used to connect AS-Interface to virtually all
common networks. This connection is established via the network-dependent Inline
bus coupler and the Inline local bus.
om
FLX ASI MA PB SF und FLX ASI MA 2 PB EF master are a Stand-Alone PROFIBUS version
for connecting AS-Interface to PROFIBUS DP networks.
The PROFIBUS masters support AS-i specification 3.0. Networks with up to 248 inputs and
248 outputs can be implemented together with different I/O devices (slaves) and IP20 or
IP65/67 protection.
on
l
in
ec
They are backwards compatible which means they can also be operated with slaves of ASInterface specifications 2.0 or 2.1.

Function Description of the AS-Interface System
The AS-Interface system enables the easy connection of sensors and actuators to a control
system (Actuator Sensor Interface = AS-Interface = AS-i). It replaces the considerably more
complex option of parallel cabling in machines and systems. The system simplifies the
installation of devices at sensor/actuator level and replaces the conventional cable harness
with a single cable. The AS-Interface system is therefore also a serial communication
system. As a sensor bus it directly penetrates through to the individual sensors and
actuators.
It is precisely here that AS-Interface has become established as a global standard solution.
AS-Interface is internationally standardized in standards EN 50295 and IEC 62026-2. It is
supported by most well-known manufacturers of control systems and sensors/actuators.

UM EN FLX ASI SYS PRO INST
1.4.1
Easy Handling
In the AS-Interface system, the binary I/O device is addressed via the control system (PLC)
in the same way as when using I/O boards and a cable harness. The direct addressing of
devices and the simple electromechanical structure (penetration technique, tree structure)
also simplify retrofitting and the conversion of an AS-i system.
Information Content of Data Telegrams
co
1.4.2
m
No special knowledge of the system, e.g., for service and maintenance, is required in order
to ensure a smooth transition from the previous star cabling to serial bus technology. The
unerring self-diagnostics of the AS-i system significantly contribute to the reduction of
system downtimes. For example, when replacing a faulty slave device it is not necessary to
assign a new address or modify the PLC program. The AS-Interface system supports the
replacement of a slave through automatic addressing.
ne
nt
s.
The AS-Interface system is optimized for networking the most basic devices using just a few
items of bit information per device. The data telegrams are therefore very short and have a
very simple structure. This means that the electronics to be integrated in the devices can be
created cost-effectively. The AS-i telegram contains a maximum of four data bits for
information exchange from the control system to the slave (output data) and from the slave
to the control system (input data). Both the input data and the output data are updated in
each cycle.
om
po
For more complex devices, e.g., analog devices, larger amounts of data can also be
transmitted. This data must be split and transmitted in several consecutive cycles in
multiplex mode.
1.4.3
Communication Principle
on
l
in
ec
The AS-Interface system is a single master system. A bus access method is used for
communication, which ensures a defined and fast response time. Communication is always
initiated by the master, the slaves only respond to master requests. The master
communicates cyclically with all devices, which are addressed using an address that is
programmed once. A master cycle consists of the requests for all connected devices. This
communication method is known as cyclic polling.
1.4.4
Time Response
The cycle time of the AS-Interface system is deterministic and proportional to the number of
devices. A time of 150 microseconds is required per device. At full system configuration with
62 devices, the cycle time is 10 milliseconds. At the end of this time, all information that was
transferred from the control system to the Fieldline Extension AS-Interface system (the
master) has arrived at the slaves. Within this time all input data has also been read.

AS-Interface standardization
1.5.1
AS-Interface specification
The AS Interface specification defines the complete AS-Interface system and guarantees
standardization of all system components. Three AS-Interface specifications have been
published since AS-Interface has been introduced in the mid-90s.
Specification 2.0 describes standard slaves. Addresses from 1 to 31 can be assigned to
standard slaves. This limits an AS-Interface network to 31 AS-Interface slaves.
Slaves with extended
addressing
Specifications 2.1 and 3.0 describe slaves with extended addressing. Addresses from 1A
to 31A and 1B to 31B may be assigned to AS-Interface slaves according to these
specifications. Thus, the possible number of AS-Interface-slaves in a network is doubled
compared with specification 2.0.

AS-Interface profile
Fixed defined profiles for AS-Interface guarantee manufacturer-independent compatibility.
The profiles summarize the meaning of the 4 data bits, the precise configuration, and the
precise functions of an AS-i slave.
1.5.3
Slave profile
Profile structure
A slave profile comprises IO code, ID code and ID2 code.
co
m
IO code and ID code describe the basic functions of a slave. These fixed codes allow a
manufacturer-independent exchange of slave devices and guarantee compatibility among
each other. ID2 code is also fixed and describes further identification characteristics of the
slave devices.
nt
Profile S-7.A.7 (4 inputs, 4 outputs)
AS-Interface permits 16 different I/O configurations for the 4 data bits.
These 16 combinations are distinguished by the IO code. IO code 7, in this
example, is defined with 4 bidirectional data bits.
ID code = A
The ID code describes the distinguishing features of the various slaves
and is defined by the manufacturer. It cannot be changed. In this example,
ID code A defines this slave as a slave with extended addressing.
ID2 code = 7
The ID2 code describes further distinguishing features of the various
slaves and is also defined by the manufacturer. It cannot be changed. In
this example, ID2 code 7 defines this slave as 4IN/4OUT slave with
extended addressing.

AS-Interface masters are also categorized in various profiles and are standardized just like
AS-Interface slaves.
Standard masters support up to 31 standard slaves or up to 31 slaves with extended
addressing. When using slaves with extended addressing, please note that - in this caseaddresses 1A to 31A will be supported only.
Standard masters also support only "Single Transaction" see Section 1.6 on page 1-7.
The profiles for standard masters are defined with M0 to M2.
Extended masters support extended addressing. That means up to 62 slaves with extended
addressing. Extended masters are backwards compatible. They support "Single
Transaction" as well as "Combined Transaction" see Section 1.6 on page 1-7. The profiles
for extended masters are defined with M3 to M4.

than 4 bits. Further data exchange rules are needed to implement additional functions
requiring a higher data width with AS-Interface such as analog transmission or I/O versions
with inputs and outputs > 4. These rules are defined in Combined Transaction.

m
The data transmission package remains unchanged to ensure backwards compatibility to
older profiles. Profiles with Combined Transaction use the multiplex procedure to transmit
more than 4 data bits. That means that more than one cycle is used to transfer the data.
As data is transmitted in several cycles, this method could possibly cause higher transmission rates than a network without Combined Transaction.

System Components of the AS-Interface System
An AS-i system consists of at least the components described below.

Power Supply Units
co
1.7.2
m
An AS-i master (gateway) is used to integrate an AS-i system into a higher-level fieldbus.
These are "intelligent" units in the AS-i system, which are responsible for serial
communication and self-diagnostics in the system. For the control system or in the higherlevel network, the AS-i system is represented in the corresponding process data, which can
be accessed in the normal way.
Slaves
om
1.7.3
po
ne
nt
s.
AS-Interface networks are supplied by special power supply units. These power supply
units provide as DC voltage of 29.5 V to 31.6 V at the output side. This is necessary in order
to safely operate all the sensors and actuators with the 24 V nominal voltage in the AS-i
system. In addition, with an integrated data decoupling network the power supply unit
ensures that data can superimpose the supply voltage. AS-i power supply units meet the
requirements of "functional extra-low voltages with safe isolation (PELV)". Outputs are
usually supplied separately via a black power cable. These standard power supply units
must also meet the requirements of PELV. This ensures that in the event of a device fault
the AS-i system cannot output any hazardous voltages.
on
l
Slave profile
in
ec
Through the concentration of special AS-i functions in the compact protocol chip a wide
range of termination devices can be adapted for use in the AS-i system. These termination
devices are the devices on the bus, i.e., the slaves. I/O devices are AS-i slaves, which
integrate several devices of conventional (parallel) type in AS-i systems.
Each slave is identified by a slave profile. The slave profile is used for clear, functional
identification by the AS-i master. The specifications for this are defined in the AS-Interface
specification and comprise an ID code, two extended ID codes (ID1 code and ID2 code),
and a configuration code for inputs/outputs (IO code). This data indicates the function of the
slave.
The slave profile looks like this: S-7.A.0. It comprises the IO code, ID code, and ID2 code, it
cannot be modified and is permanently programmed by the manufacturer.
All information in the slave profile (ID, ID1, ID2, and IO code) is required in order to easily
replace slaves within an existing system. The master uses this data to check whether the
actual configuration matches the desired configuration.

Fieldline Extension and the AS-Interface System
1.7.4
Cable
The entire conventional and complex parallel cabling system, which is prone to errors, is no
longer required and is replaced by a single AS-i cable. Power and data are transmitted via
a single cable. The profiled flat-ribbon cable, which is typical for AS-i, is used for data
transmission for Fieldline Extension AS-i M12 devices. The new innovative locking
mechanism for AS-i M12 devices enables tool-free connection to the AS-i flat-ribbon cable.
1.8
Topology
s.
co
m
The topology of an AS-i network can be freely selected. The cable routing can be adapted
to the local requirements. The network can be created with a linear, star or tree structure.
Branch lines are permitted. The system can be installed like a normal electrical installation
for power distribution. The devices can be connected to the cable at any point in the system,
without having to consider the order, positions or distances. Cable termination resistors are
not required on the AS-i cable.
nt
The only restriction that must be observed is that the total length of the cable must not
exceed 100 m. The value includes all cable lengths, i.e., even branch lines.

The processes on both sides are executed independently of one another:
•
The information from the process data channel of the Inline Modular local bus is
buffered in the AS-i master for Inline until it can be transmitted to the corresponding ASi slave.
•
The latest available information from all AS-i slaves is forwarded in one local bus cycle
to the Inline master via the process data channel.
The AS-i master enables complete startup and diagnostics of the AS-i system. Startup,
troubleshooting, and configuration on AS-Interface can be carried out directly on the device
using the two buttons, a display, and LEDs.

The AS-i master does not require a separate power supply. The communications power of
the AS-i master is supplied in full from the Inline Modular local bus. All the power for the ASi electronics is obtained directly from the AS-i network (current consumption around 200 mA
from AS-i). An additional 24 V power supply is not required for the AS-i master. The AS-i
master is simply integrated in the Inline Modular local bus and connected to the AS-i cable.
The master starts working when the AS-i power supply unit is switched on.

Like all other AS-i components, the AS-i power supply unit is connected at any point in the
AS-i network via the AS-i cable, see also "Power Supply Units" on page 3-1.

Function
Connecting to
PROFIBUS DP
The AS-i master (gateway) establishes the connection between PROFIBUS DP and the ASInterface system. The primary task of the AS-i master is to transmit bits from the PROFIBUS
DP to the AS-i slaves (actuators) and bits from AS-i (sensors) to the PROFIBUS DP.
PROFIBUS DP slave
On one side, the AS-i master is controlled by the PROFIBUS master, i.e., it represents a
PROFIBUS DPslave.
AS-i master
On the other side, it is the AS-i master, i.e., it monitors the connected AS-i system
andcontrols all processes on it. All AS-i functions can be called via PROFIBUS DP.

AS-Interface Masters/Gateways
AS-i Fault Detector
Functions of the AS-i Fault Detector:
Duplicate address‘ recognition
If two slaves have the same address in an AS-i circuit, a duplicate address exists. Because
of this error the master can not send a request to each slave separately. At that time both
repsonses overlap themselves on the line, it is impossible for the master to recognize the
slave response safely. It exists an unstable network behaviour.
m
The function "duplicate address‘ recognition" allows to recognize a duplicate address and
to indicate this via the superior fieldbus. By voltage reset at the AS-i circuit 1 the complete
gateway with enhanced function range will be shut down. The respective bits ground fault,
over-voltage, noise, double address will only be set if AS-i masters are used that support
these functions. A duplicate address causes a configuration error and will be shown in the
display of the master.
s.
co
Duplicate addresses can be recognized only in the AS-i segment directly at the master. If
both slaves participate in a duplicate address located behind a repeater, the duplicate
address‘ recognition is impossible.
Earth Fault Detector
ne
is outside of the following range:
nt
An Earth Fault exists when the voltage UGND (Nominal value of UGND=0,5 UAS-i)
10% UAS-i < UGND < 90% UAS-i
po
This error limits the fail-safe characteristic of the AS-i transmission substantially. Ground
faults are indicated on the masters display.
om
For recognition of earth faults the master must be grounded with the function earth.
Noise Detector
in
ec
The noise detector detects alternating voltages on AS-i, which are not produced by AS-i
master or AS-i slaves. These interference voltages can cause telegram disturbances. A
frequent cause are insufficiently shielded frequency inverters or awkwardly shifted cables.
Noises are indicated in the master´s display as well as via the upstream fieldbus.
on
l
Overvoltage Detector
Startup
Overvoltages are present, if the AS-i line, whose conductors lie normally electrically
symmetrically to the plant earth, are strongly electrically raised. A cause can be e.g. poweron procedures of large consumers. However sometimes overvoltages don‘t generally
disturb AS-i communication, but can release incorrect signals of sensors. Overvoltages are
indicated in the master´s display as well as via the upstream fieldbus.
A device database file (GSD) is supplied with the devices, which enables the easy startupof
the AS-i master for PROFIBUS DP. A device database file (GSD) is supplied with the
devices, which enables the easy startup of the AS-i master for PROFIBUS DP. It is
necessary to link a corresponding parameterization/programming software to a device
description file (GSD) to start up AS-i masters. It can be downloaded free of charge at
www.phoenixcontact.net/download.
By default, the device is set to PROFIBUS address 3. The PROFIBUS address can be
modified with two buttons, the three-digit display and the LEDs directly at the device.

Description
Power supply units greatly influence the availability and operational reliability of electrical
systems. Therefore, the power supply unit should be chosen as carefully as all the other
system components. Universal power supply units must meet all the necessary
requirements. This increases the reliability of electrical systems.

m
ASI QUINT power supply units supply the AS-i system with the power required. In order to
minimize the number of terminal points, a single two-wire cable is used to transmit
information and supply power. AS-i power supply units use an integrated filter to ensure that
the modulated data flow is not affected.

nt
s.
AS-i power supply units use an integrated filter to ensure that the modulated data flow is not
affected. In addition, the short-circuit-proof and idling-proof voltage output provides a power
reserve of around 60%. This means that even loads with high inrush currents can start
safely.
If there are two ground faults in an AS-i system, this can result in undesired machine startup
or it no longer being possible to stop the machine. In order to prevent this, the
AS-i power supply units from Phoenix Contact indicate the first ground fault. The message
is indicated on the device via LEDs and via an output. In the configuration set upon delivery,
the alarm output signal can be used to selectively stop the system via the control program.
As an alternative, it is possible to configure the AS-i power supply unit so that the AS-i
voltage switches off automatically when a ground fault is detected. Dangerous states for
operating personnel and for machines/systems are thus prevented in advance.
Universal use
The wide-range input, which can be used to operate the AS-i power supply units from
Phoenix Contact on all popular single-phase AC and DC networks, supports universal use.

Integrated harmonic filter
Wide range of
applications
EN 61000-3-2 came into force on January 1, 2001. As of this date, all primary-switched
power supply units, which are connected directly to the public low-voltage network, must be
fitted with a harmonic filter in order to suppress the supply of high-frequency reverse
currents into the power supply company's network. All AS-i power supply units from
Phoenix Contact are fitted with an active PFC filter (Power Factor Correction). In addition to
the filter function, this circuit ensures mains buffering of more than 40 ms across the entire
input voltage range.
The ASI QUINT 100-240/2.4 EFD and ASI QUINT 100-240/4.8 EFD power supply units
meet the requirements of EN 55022 Class B with regard to noise immunity and noise
emission. The devices are therefore suitable for universal use – both under extreme
industrial conditions and in sensitive office and residential areas.

Mounting Fieldline Extension AS-i M12 Devices
Fieldline Extension AS-i devices can be mounted directly on the machine. They can be
screwed onto flat surfaces or snapped onto a DIN rail.
The mounting surface must be flat to avoid strain in the housing when tightening the
screws.
The devices can be mounted directly on the mounting surface using two or more mounting
holes (1) in Figure 4-5. The diameter of the mounting holes is 4 mm, the cylindrical sinking
is 8 mm. For the drill hole spacing, please refer to the dimensional drawings on page 4-3.

Flat-Ribbon Cable
A key electromechanical feature of AS-Interface is the flat-ribbon cable. This cable design
is used because the AS-i cable should be contacted where possible without cutting off or
stripping the sheath. In order to avoid the risk of polarity reversal of the wires, the flat-ribbon
cable has a keyway at one end. Unless forced mechanically, the cable cannot be inserted
incorrectly in the cable routing aids, which prevents unintentional polarity reversal. The
trapezoidal cross-section of the cable makes it easier to seal the cable in the devices, thus
providing IP67 protection.
co
m
In addition to the mechanical keying, both wires in the flat-ribbon cable are color-coded: the
positive cable has brown sheathing and the negative cable has light blue sheathing. The
external sheath is usually yellow, and when the same cable type is used for the external
auxiliary voltage of output devices with 24 V DC a black sheath is used.

AS-i flat-ribbon cable
The cable sheath can consist of various different types of insulation material. For normal
rubber cable, the sheath ensures that it automatically closes any contact points that have
opened again. This effect is known as self-healing. This means that multiple contact and
release is possible at the same point without adversely affecting the seal and the cable
insulation.
Other cable materials are also available, which have a high level of resistance to chemicals
and can permanently withstand UV light. However, the selected material does affect the
mechanical properties of the outer cable sheath.

4.1.6
Penetration Technique
For the AS-i flat-ribbon cable, the penetration technique is used as the connection method.
The penetration technique enables contact to be established quickly, easily, and reliably
between the cable and the device without having to strip or cut the cable in any way. No
special tools are required.
Cable connection using the penetration technique
nt
Figure 4-9
s.
co
m
The electrical connection of cables in the flat-ribbon cable to the device is established via
contact pins, which penetrate through the cable sheath to the copper conductors. This
method is therefore only suitable because the position of the conductors in the cable is fixed
and there is no braided shield to prevent penetration.
po
ne
The cable support has negative contouring, which prevents incorrect insertion of the cable
resulting in polarity reversal. When the device locking latch is closed, the contact pins
automatically penetrate through the cable sheath and the conductor insulation into the litz
wire structure. Following assembly, additional pressure is not required in order to ensure
permanent contacting.

The penetration technique used with AS-i means that the system can be installed extremely
easily and quickly.

Configuration
5
Configuration
Before selecting the devices of an AS-i system it is useful to clarify the requirements of your
application with the aid of a checklist. This enables quick and optimum planning of your own
system.
5.1
Number of Inputs and Outputs
co
m
The number of inputs and outputs required determines whether the application can be
covered with a single AS-i system. An AS-i system can operate a maximum of 62 slaves with
4 digital inputs and 4 digital outputs each (specification 3.0). This equals a maximum of
248 inputs and 248 outputs per system.
5.2
ne
nt
s.
Considerably fewer inputs and outputs are often required in an AS-i system. In this case,
masters and slaves can be used according to AS-i specification 2.0
(e.g., FLX ASI DO 4 M12). These single slaves do not support the extended addressing
options according to AS-i specification 2.1. Single slaves can also be used in mixed
operation with specification 2.1 slaves (e.g., FLX ASI DI 4 M12).
Position of Inputs and Outputs in the Application
on
l
in
ec
om
po
The advantage of an AS-i system is that the termination devices can be connected directly
at the installation location. When using devices, small groups of terminal points are created,
e.g., 4 digital inputs. Check how the termination devices to be connected can be assigned
to specific AS-i devices. The most cost-effective solution is to use devices with
4 digital inputs and 4 digital outputs. This configuration can be implemented, e.g., with the
FLX ASI DIO 4/4 M8-1A according to specification 2.0. or even with the
FLX ASI 3.0 DIO 4/4 M12-2A according to specification 3.0. This means that the same
number of inputs and outputs are required and that they are located at the same points in
the application. Otherwise use devices with different I/O combinations. Please note the limit
is 62 slaves (specification 2.1/3.0).
5.3
Required Current in an AS-i System
Each AS-i system is supplied by a power supply unit. Therefore correct sizing is crucial from
as early as the system planning phase. To do this, all current loads in the AS-i system must
be identified and their current requirement quantified.
Each AS-i master and AS-i slave obtains a specific amount of current from AS-i. These
values are listed in the relevant data sheet, typically a master requires, e.g., 100 mA to
200 mA and a slave requires 30 mA to 60 mA. In addition, the sensors and actuators that
are supplied directly via AS-i must be taken into consideration.
7513_en_01
PHOENIX CONTACT
5-1
UM EN FLX ASI SYS PRO INST
Please note that the sensors connected to the AS-i devices are supplied via the power
supply unit. The connected actuators are operated separately via the black AS-i cable.
Example Calculation:

The actuators are supplied via a 24 V auxiliary voltage.

s.
5.4
co
m
In this example, a total of 2.1 A is required in the AS-i system. Here it is sufficient to use an
AS-i power supply unit with a maximum output current of 2.4 A,
e.g., ASI QUINT 100-240/2.4 A EFD.
Speed of Data Exchange
om
5.5
po
ne
nt
A typical, profiled flat-ribbon cable made from rubber is used consistently throughout the
AS-i system. This offers the advantage of a quick and easy connection method. In the event
that the cable must meet special requirements in terms of resistance to oil or
UV light, versions are also available that are made from resistant materials such as PUR.
For additional information, please refer to "Flat-Ribbon Cable" on page 4-7.
in
ec
At maximum configuration, the AS-i system has a very fast cycle time of 10 ms. If even faster
response times are required, reducing the number of slaves results in a proportional
decrease in the cycle time. A system with just six slaves can thus be updated in 1 ms.
on
l
If only part of the data needs to be updated faster, there is the option of configuring some of
the slaves without extended addressing. This reduces the number of possible slaves in the
AS-i system. The devices operated as single slaves are updated twice as fast,
i.e., in a maximum of 5 ms. Both methods can also be combined.
5-2
PHOENIX CONTACT
When using AS Interface slaves according to specification 3.0 (e.g, Profile 7.A.7), please
note that the cycle time is above the previously mentioned 10 ms for these "combined
transactions". The exact cycle time depends on the selected slave type/profile.
7513_en_01
Configuration
5.6
Integrating the AS-i System in the Control System
The type of control system used determines which AS-i master is selected. A fieldbus
system is often already available for the same system. The corresponding gateways can
then be used as AS-i masters.
Integration in a
PROFIBUS DP network
For integration in a PROFIBUS DP network, use the AS-i masters FLX ASI MA PB SF or
FLX ASI MA 2 PB EF.
Integration in another
network
To connect AS-Interface to virtually all other networks, the ASI MA IL UNI AS-i gateway for
Inline can be used in combination with a corresponding Inline bus coupler.

Together with a modular ILC1xx or ILC3xx compact controller from Phoenix Contact, the

One of the key advantages of the AS-i system is that termination devices are connected
directly to the machine. Ultimately the system is designed with a very high level of protection
in the form of IP67. This saves a lot of space in the control cabinet, which usually contains
just the AS-i master and the AS-i power supply unit. If, however, I/O functions are required
directly via AS-Interface in the control cabinet, AS-i ME Line devices,
e.g., ASI IO ME DIO 4/3 AB, can be used.

m
When using Fieldline Extension AS-i M12 devices with separate mounting bases the
devices do not all have to be installed in the same area or at the same time. The first step is
to mount the mounting bases on the machine. The AS-i flat-ribbon cable can then be
installed. In a separate step, the electronics module is snapped on shortly before or during
initial startup of the AS-i system, see also page 4-14.
po
Address programming can be carried out directly via an AS-Interface master during device
startup. AS-Interface masters offer the option of carrying out address assignment for
connected AS-i slaves directly on the device using indicators and operating buttons. As only
one slave can be addressed with the address "zero", only one slave may be active with this
address in the system.
om
Address assignment via
the AS-Interface master
ne
Before starting up a system with the AS-Interface system for the first time, all connected
slaves must be assigned an operating address. By default upon delivery, the address for all
slaves is set to zero.

Address assignment via a
manual addressing device
Another option is to use a special addressing device that has been specified for
AS-Interface, which enables manual address assignment.
At the touch of a button, the address of the connected slave can be read and displayed on
the LCD. The address that is returned can be modified using the two arrow buttons in order
to enter the new desired slave address. The address is saved on the slave via the
programming button. Slaves with different connection methods can be connected directly
to this simple manual programming device via a universal connection head without the need
for adapters.

Configuring the Master
To operate and monitor the AS-i system, the AS-i master constantly compares the actual
status of all slaves with the desired status. Therefore the AS-i master must be informed once
of the desired status of the system during AS-i system startup; this is referred to as the
master configuration process.
In the simplest case, the network at the time of startup can be configured as the desired
configuration.

The AS-i master carries out system diagnostics continuously during operation. Errors in the
system configuration are displayed immediately together with the corresponding slave
address.
