Bihl+Wiedemann now offers ASi Safety active distributors with integrated ASi chip especially for Schmersal and Pilz interlocks. They are used to easily incorporate safety interlocks from these manufacturers into ASi systems : The connection between the interlock and our module is done with 8-conductor M12 cables integrated into the active distributor. The cable length between the distributor and interlock thus has no effect on the allowable total length of the ASi network.
Their especially compact form factor is ideal for cable ducts, allowing you freedom in cable routing paths. And thanks to pre-assembled cables you save hardware costs and wiring time while at the same time minimizing possible wiring mistakes.
Versions for interlocks from other manufacturers are available on request.
