AD v1 can use either a wired (USB) connection or a wireless (WiFi) connection to communicate with EcoStruxure BMS servers. AD v1 can be powered either by a AS-P server, AS-B server, or USB power adapter.
The preinstalled AD-Link application enables AD v1 to communicate with EcoStruxure BMS servers over a USB connection.
When AD v1 is connected to a AS-P server or AS-B server, AD v1 can be powered by the automation server through the USB cable. The screen must not be turned on constantly because this may drain the battery.
AD v1 can communicate with EcoStruxure BMS servers through a wireless access point (AP), which is connected to the same network as the EcoStruxure BMS servers. When used as a stationary HMI terminal, AD v1 is connected to a USB power adapter to ensure that its battery is charged.
