ASi lines longer than 100 m

Options for line extension with Bihl+Wiedemann

Profit from the variety of ways to extend ASi cable runs to 1000 m for example. Use the ASi Bus Termination, ASi Tuner and ASi Repeaters to extend the range of the ASi network flexibly and cost-effectively.


Splitting into several Segments

  • Dividing the ASi cable into multiple 100 m networks with their own Master and own power supply or by using double masters
  • Short ASi cables minimize interference susceptibility
  • Retains all the advantages of a 100 m ASi network
  • Not possible without an upper bus system

Refreshing the signal using ASi Repeaters

  • Extending the ASi cable by up to 100 m using ASi repeaters
  • Heavily saturated EMC areas can then be bridged
  • ASi repeater causes a slight time delay in each telegram

Reflection signal attenuation using the ASi Bus Termination

  • Very simple and cost-effective solutions using ASi Bus Termination 
  • Possible network extension by up to 100 m
  • ASi network should be checked at commissioning using the Software for Diagnostics, Service and Release Measurements ( BW2902 )

ASi Tuner and ASi Diagnostic Tuner

  • Extending the ASi cable by 200 m using the ASi Tuner or ASi Diagnostics Tuner
  • Individual optimization of the network impedance
  • Optical display of the network signal quality: continuous monitoring

Benefits of circuit extension with Bihl+Wiedemann

  • Simple and cost-effective solution with an ASi Bus Termination
  • Independent power supply thanks to galvanic separation
  • ASi cable runs with a length of for example 1000 m using ASi Repeaters and ASi Bus Terminations
