Active Distributors ASi

Active distributors ASi from Bihl+Wiedemann allow you to make any sensor or actuator AS-Interface capable. Even modules without their own ASi terminal can be easily integrated into an existing ASi network using these active distributors ASi. Other features include individually configurable connection options using M8 or M12 connectors, flying leads or push-in termimals to conform to the customer’s application, as well as a compact form factor, making them ideal for use in cable ducts.

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 modules) however only the one ASi profile cable is counted.

Round cable

Modules with a flat housing design and with cables which exit the sides make these ideal for installation in cable ducts, cable channels, cable troughs, cable rails or cable trays. Please note the respective housing depth for your particular installation.

  • IO-Link ports class B
Figure Model Number of IO-Link Ports

Port class A (M12): Pin 4 configurable (IO-Link/DI/DO), additional digital input at pin 2. Compatible with 3 pol IO-Link devices (M8).

Configurable terminals: Terminal assignment (C/Q, L+, L-, I) compatible with pin assigment of IO-Link port class A (M12). Connected IO-Link devices with port class B (M12) with a higher current consumption have to be supplied directly via a separate power supply. Compatible with 3 pol IO-Link devices (M8).

Connected IO-Link devices with port class B (M12) with a higher current consumption have to be supplied directly via a separate power supply. Compatible with 3 pol IO-Link devices (M8).

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 Devices with IO-Link ports class B need a higher current consumption, additionally they can be supplied directly via the power supply.
