Masters and gateways are the centerpiece of every AS-Interface network.
Masters with control or PLC functions can be used as controllers in stand-alone mode.
Gateways are modules that form an interface between the AS-Interface and higher-level buses. You can install gateways to provide a solution for complex applications using standard products. The gateways act as a slave for the higher-level bus.
Standard characteristics of gateways and double masters in a K20 enclosure include EFD (Earth Fault Detection), double address detection, simple, direct operation and a large graphic display.
Gateways in a compact K25 enclosure with a width of only 45 mm present a space-saving alternative to larger gateways. The bright 7-segment LED display facilitates convenient operation.
Gateways and masters in a G4 enclosure are specially designed for installation in the field and have a single flat cable connection and degree of protection IP 65, allowing them to withstand even the toughest conditions.
