Course Outline and Certification

Students learn about the various topology options, network structures and the incorporation of AS-i into higher-level network structures, such as PROFIBUS.

The course covers power and data transmission, transmission phases for controlling data exchange, start-up procedures and addressing, and data handling throughput in terms of speed, delay and jitter.

The interoperability of different devices from different vendors are discussed along with the environments in which AS-i is implemented. Learn about the interaction between masters and slaves.

Using demonstration boards, students get the opportunity to build a small AS-i network, giving them hands-on experience on installing AS-i devices, and integrating sensors into the system.

Who should attend? Installers, network engineers, project planners, industrial engineers, maintenance workers, plant employees.


This course is most beneficial if the attendee has a technical background or experience working in digital communications systems.

Occasional exposure to networks has been found to be insufficient in preparing potential candidates.

Have a good command of the English language

Be able to understand and interpret technical ideas and systems

Understand the basics of communications and what it entails

While the IDX Academy makes every effort to assist attendees in understanding the subject matter and associated concepts, the course time is limited and therefore the IDX Academy cannot be held responsible for attendees that fail to cope with the material covered.
