Function: VBA-2A-G11-I-F

The analog module VBA-2A-G11-I-F has two analog current outputs (0 mA ... 20 mA). Power is supplied to the outputs through the yellow AS-Interface cable. Analog value conversion and data transfer are provided asynchronously according to AS-Interface profile 7.3. The rise time of the analog signals is approx. 2 ms.

If the analog value “0” is returned, lead breakages are not monitored on the respective channel. In this case, peripheral faults are not signaled when there is no active connection to an actuator. If the internal “watchdog” monitoring function is enabled, the output signals are reset to zero if communication with the AS-Interface fails.

The G11 module with IP68/IP69K protection is particularly suitable for demanding field applictions. The connection to the actuators is established via M12 connectors. The module can be preaddressed by connecting it to the handheld programming unit VBP-HH1 via the addressing socket. The connection to the AS-Interface transfer line is established using the AS-Interface flat cable.


A lead breakage or an output value outside the value range is also transmitted to the ASInterface master via the 'peripheral fault' function. Communication via the AS-Interface continues.
