AS-Interface Power supply and network checking utilityfa

Function: VAN-115/230AC-K16

The primary pulsed DIN rail power pack is used for special power supply of AS-Interface networks via a two-wire line. It supplies a fully loaded AS-Interface system with an output current of 8 A.

The voltage input range of the device can be selected on the front side. This makes it possible to operate the device on all single-phase power supply voltages commonly used worldwide.

Certification of the device according to international and various national standards allows for worldwide usage.

Safe operation using FUSE mode:

To protect against overload and excess temperature, the device has a FUSE mode (electronically simulated fuse), for permanent shutoff of the output in the event of failure. This turns off the device in the event of overload, short circuit or excess temperature, thus protecting the AS-Interface cable and the attached components. A flashing LED indicates that the FUSE mode has been triggered. Turning the device on again requires deliberately pressing a Reset button on the front side of the unit. This prevents unwanted startup from occurring.

Operation without the AS-Interface string:

This AS-Interface power pack has an inductive output. For operation without the AS-Interface string (for example lab measurements) we recommend connecting a 470 μF/35 V capacitor between AS-Interface + and AS-Interface -. Standard commercial laboratory loads frequently tend to oscillate and together with the data decoupling form a resonance that exceeds the permitted modulation voltage.
