This is how you extend your AS-i line to 1,000 meters!

The combination of Advanced Repeaters and AS-i Bus Terminations means that AS-i networks can be extended cost-effectively up to 1,000 m for example. Apart from the independent power supplies, you only need one Master / Gateway for the complete AS-i circuit.
