Bihl+Wiedemann now offers AS-i Safety active distributors with integrated AS-i chip especially for Schmersal and Pilz interlocks. They are used to easily incorporate safety interlocks from these manufacturers into AS-i 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 AS-i network.
Beginning in April 2017 we will begin converting articles from screw terminals to push-in terminals. No changes are necessary when placing new orders. More information about the changeover can be found here.
Bihl+Wiedemann GmbH was founded in 1992 in Mannheim, Germany by Jochen Bihl and Bernhard Wiedemann. The highly specialized engineering firm is among the leading providers of safety technology and electronic components for automation technology using AS-Interface.
