Do I Always Need an AS-Interface Power Supply for My AS-Interface Network?

Posted by Danius Silgalis on Tue, Sep 27, 2016

AS-Interface networks consist of three main categories:

  • Gateways or scanner cards (masters)
  • Power supplies and repeaters (infrastructure)
  • Modules and sensors (slaves)

AS-Interface power supplies supply 30.5 VDC power for nodes connected to the AS-Interface yellow cable.  The decoupling coils in an AS-Interface power supply enable communication and power to be transmitted over a single cable.
