Operating principle

Repeaters are used for AS-Interface to enable the network cable run to be extended beyond 100 m. Galvanic separation of network segments and independent voltage supplies ensure stability. The 62 participants are provided with a higher total current and the voltage drop decreases.

While conventional repeaters usually have a temperature range from 0...55 °C, the new unit from ifm operates reliably across a broad range from -25...70 °C. The improved operating temperature range makes the new unit from ifm a class leader This results in a longer life time thus saving time and money.
