This course provides you with system knowledge of the AS-Interface standardized networking system. It deals with the gateways to PROFIBUS and PROFINET and provides the necessary fundamental fieldbus knowledge. You will connect the AS-Interface components for ASIsafe® (safety monitor, EMERGENCY STOP switch, position switches, etc.) to an AS-Interface network, and configure with help of asimon graphical Software Tool. These practical exercises will reinforce your theoretical knowledge.
