ASi Slaves/IO-Link Masters

With the ASi Slaves/IO-Link Masters from Bihl+Wiedemann intelligent IO-Link sensors and actuators can now be easily incorporated into ASi – exactly there, where they are needed. The IO-Link sensors can be easily parametrized using the configuration tool from Bihl+Wiedemann.

In many application scenarios, IO-Link solutions from Bihl+Wiedemann are much more cost-efficient than similar solutions from other providers. An application with Bihl+Wiedemann is already cheaper than comparable PROFINET variants from three 4-port IO-Link masters. Another factor is the finer granularity. Our 1-port IO-Link master allows you to integrate an IO-Link device exactly where you need it. Thanks to cable-piercing technology, it is extremely easy to install our IO-Link master. You can substantially reduce the time required for assembly.

IO-Link Port Class B

IO-Link and additional inputs/outputs are supplied by ASi or by AUX (auxiliary 24 V power). If supplied by ASi, inputs can neither be connected to earth nor to external potential.

Sensor supply (IO-Link supply and input/output supply)

Connection via M12: For IO-Link ports class B the supply of actuators is provided by an additional (galvanically isolated) power supply by AUX (auxiliary 24 V power) via Pin 2 (P24) and Pin 5 (N24).

Connection via clamps: If connected IO-Link slaves with IO-Link ports class B need a higher current consumption, additionally they can be supplied directly via the power supply.

Connection

The connection to ASi as well to AUX (auxiliary 24 V power) is made via yellow resp. black ASi profile cable with piercing technology or via M12 socket (in IP20 via clamps).


Line protection: If the module is supplied via a M12 connection with A or B coding, it may only be used with a current load of max. 4 A per pin in acc. with IEC 61076-2-101 and IEC 61076-2-109. A fused tap is recommended. There is no such limitation for modules supplied via piercing contacts.

Under normal conditions (no bus termination or repeater), the permissible total length of the ASi segment is max. 100 m. The calculation should take into consideration that the length of the connection cable (round cable) for each connected passive distributor must be doubled.

In the case of the active distributors (ASi slaves) however only the one ASi profile cable is counted.
