AS-Interface Power24 -- AS-Interface is based on an operating voltage of 30.5 VDC. The Power24 specification allows, in some cases, operating the AS-Interface network at 24 VDC. In this episode, you'll learn:

  • What makes a module Power24 compliant?
  • How Power24 may reduce the overall system cost for small installation
  • Why Power24 limits the network length to about 50 m
  • Where does decoupling take place?
  • Power24-compliant gateways
