What are the most common AS-Interface errors? There are a few errors that are made repeatedly when installing AS-Interface. The good news is that these errors are easily prevented and easy to correct even after the fact:

  • -Network is too long due to misinterpretation of the 100 m segment length limit
  • -Using a conventional power supply to power AS-Interface
  • -Using the AS-Interface power supply to ALSO power AUX
  • -AS-Interface cable installed in the same tray as power cable
