New 30 V Power Supply Generation for ASi-5: More Value, More Compact, Extended Diagnostics


March 4, 2021

Take advantage of Bihl+Wiedemann’s new generation of advanced 30 V power supplies. It is specially designed for ASi-5 communication and is also ideal for parallel ASi-5/ASi-3 communication. They have optimized all six new 30 V power supplies for use with our ASi-5/ASi-3 Gateways. Interferences common in power supplies, are reduced to a minimum in areas relevant to ASi-5 and ASi-3 communication.

30 V Power Supplies Replace ASi Power Supplies

Bihl+Wiedemann’s product family of modern 30 V power supplies supersedes the previous generation of ASi power supplies, which are still available as “replacement devices”. However, when designing a new system or refurbishing an existing machine, Bihl+Wiedemann always recommend using the new 30 V power supplies in combination with ASi-5/ASi-3 Gateways.

Advantages of the new power supplies

  •    –   Seamless ASi-5 communication – All new power supplies have been optimized and extensively tested for use with ASi-5/ASi-3 Gateways.
  •    –   Reduced costs – The 30 V power supplies are less expensive than previous ASi power supplies – mainly because data decoupling is now integrated as standard in our ASi-5/ASi-3 Gateways.
  •    –   Smaller footprint – The 30 V power supplies are clearly more compact compared to ASi power supplies with decoupling coils. Since they can also be connected side-by-side, they save space in the control cabinet.
  •    –   Detailed diagnostics – The 30 V power supplies, in conjunction with the ASi-5/ASi-3 Gateways, give you a permanent overview of all data and values of your system’s power supply.
  •    –   Power supplies suitable for every application – Here you will find the six new 30 V power supplies. They also match very well with ASi-3 Gateways, if the criterion “1 power supply, 1 gateway for 2 ASi networks” is satisfied in the technical data.
