The Modern ASi-5/ASi-3 Address Programming Device – Designed for all ASi Generations

The Contemporary ASi Address Programming Device

ASi-5 is the latest development stage of AS-Interface. For this application, we now provide our modern ASi-5/ASi-3 address programming device (BW4708). Just as with our ASi-5/ASi-3 Gateways, we focus on full compatibility. This means: You can use the new addressing device for all ASi-5 as well as for all ASi-3 modules – while maintaining a uniform workflow.

Even if you don’t have ASi-5 modules in use yet, you will still profit from advanced product features: an OLED color display, a bulit-in supercapacitor (for powerful energy storage) and simple PC connection via a standard USB-C connection. It also enables seamless integration into the Bihl+Wiedemann Software Suite. 

Count on a powerful combination when commissioning your ASi system: Using the handy ASi-5/ASi-3 address programming device together with the Bihl+Wiedemann Software Suite, you combine the advantages of decentralized (bottom-up) addressing with those of centralized (top-down) planning and parameterization.

How do You Use the ASi-5/ASi-3 Address Programming Device Optimally?

For easy and safe commissioning of your ASi system, it is recommended to use our intuitive, sophisticated ASIMON360 software in conjunction with the modern ASi-5/ASi-3 address programming device – even if you do not wish to use ASi-5 modules at present. The typical procedure is as follows:

  1. First plan the network in the hardware configuration section of ASIMON360 or ASi Control Tools360. You can also make all the individual settings for each device separately.
  2. In the second step, set the ASi addresses (ASi-3) and participant numbers (ASi-5) individually at the respective modules on site using the addressing device. Then you can connect all devices to the ASi Master.
  3. Finally, start the commissioning wizard. The devices are then all automatically fully configured and receive all other settings that were initially specified in the hardware configuration section.
