(1) ISO adapter can not be used because the required supply voltage on the PG interface of the module is not present.
(2) At the CPU 6ES5 102-8MA02 Release 3 is a PG-ISO-Adapter or Netz-Adapter additional required.
(3) With S5-LAN++ from HW V2.3 [2010] the "Netz-Adapter" is no more needed, this version has included current-sources.
(4) With S5-LAN++ from HW V2.3 [2010] no accessories are needed, this version has included current-sources.
(5) With S5-LAN++ from HW V2.3 [2010] a Sinum-Adapter with special pinning is needed.
(6) Only for CPU928B with PG-ISO-Adapter and ext. 24V DC, unless there is an S5-LAN++ from HW V2.3 [2010] used.
(7) CP544 has bolts at the programming-interface. The products do not fit 100% on this interface.
(8) With S5-BRIDGE a Sinum-Adapter with special pinning is needed.

24V-supply from the PLC
Produkbild

You want to install your ALF directly in the switch-board and would like to use the 24V of the existing S7-PLC? No problem, connect the open ended side of the Kabelbrücke to the 24V port on your ALF and the bus-side on the MPI- or Profibus of this PLC. Even the ALF is supplied above this PLC.

Operation as an access point
Produkbild

You are on site your plant and should move round the machine and simultaneously control or monitor. No problem, you parametrize ALF as an access-point and connect your S7-LAN or other network-client to him, connect your PC with him and you are online on the PLC.

Operation as a WLAN-client
Produkbild

You are on site your plant and should move round the machine and simultaneously control or monitor. WLAN is reachable, but your PC is not able to provide WLAN. No problem, you parametrize ALF as a client and connect him to the PC and join the reachable WLAN and you are online on the PLC.

Operation as bridge
Produkbild

You have two or more clients which should communicate together without LAN-cable-connection? No problem, you connect a "Access-Point" configured ALF to this device and to the other device a "Client" configured ALF. Then connect the "Client" with the "Access-Point" and the device are able to communicate together.

No direct connected LAN-client required
Produkbild

You have some LAN-clients and want to communicate via WLAN with them? No problem, you connect ALF to a switch and you are able to communicate with all this clients. You don´t need a direct connect client.

Easiest configuration by included webserver
Produkbild

To configure ALF you don´t need additional driver or special cables, you connect your PC via LAN or WLAN with ALF and over the integrated webserver you can configure the needed function.

Integrated dhcp-server
Produkbild

You use your PC in your company network with DHCP, so you don´t have to care the everlasting setting of the ip-address. No problem, ALF also can be configured as a DHCP-server and assigns you accessing to the device via LAN or WLAN an ip-address from a predefined address range.

Autonegotiation on RJ-45
Produkbild

You need ALF to connect to a reachable WLAN, but only have a patch-cable? No problem, ALF provides "autonegotiation" and this means that he recognises a connected cable (patch-cable or cross-over-cable) and surround the pinning according to the cable, so a communication is possible.

Integrated firewall
Produkbild

You use ALF as a WLAN-router to connect your PC with the internet. No Problem, this Sie nutzen ALF als WLAN-Router um Ihren PC ins Internet zu bringen. Kein Problem, ALF masters this task without problems. Its built-in firewall ensures that no hacker from outside changes your configuration or moves in your network.
