ASi lines longer than 100 m

Options for circuit 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

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 )

    ... using ASi Tuner and ASi Diagnostic Tuner

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

        Very long ASi cables by combining ASi Repeaters and ASi Bus Terminations

        Signal extension with ASi Repeaters in combined ASi-3/ASi-5 installations

        • Extension of the ASi cable by up to 100 m with ASi Repeaters, or 200 m with integrated ASi-3 Bus Termination possible
        • Areas with very high EMC interference can be bridged
        • ASi Repeaters cause a certain delay of each telegram, therefore only max. 2 ASi Repeaters in series are possible
        • From the first ASi Repeater no more ASi-5 communication is possible

        Advantages of circuit extension with Bihl+Wiedemann

          • Simple and cost-effective solution with an ASi Bus Termination
          • Improved EMC properties due to galvanic isolation
          • ASi cable runs with a length of for example 1000 m using ASi Repeaters and ASi Bus Terminations
