Even with just three or more I/O field modules or three I/O stations, AS-Interface offers cost advantages over all other fieldbus systems.
Benefits of our IP20 I/O Modules
Use of I/O Modules from Bihl+Wiedemann saves hardware costs and control cabinet space.
Reduced hardware costs (incl. connector construction)
neither bus couplers nor fieldbus plugs (always one per station) are necessary; instead you need just one Gateway for the entire system.
Save valuable control cabinet space
Bihl+Wiedemann modules combine up to 8 inputs and 8 outputs in a 22.5 mm wide housing.
Reduced wiring complexity
Bihl+Wiedemann modules can also be installed in the control cabinet right where the signals are actually needed. I/O Modules can also be installed remotely in the control cabinet.
Benefits of our IP67 I/O Modules
Using I/O Modules with IP67 protection saves hardware and installation costs.
Clear savings in hardware and installation costs
You don’t need either plugs for connecting to the power supply or cumbersome self-assembled fieldbus connectors (2 per fieldbus module). Instead the I/O Modules are simply connected using the familiar yellow cable and piercing technique.
Organized installation with ASi modules
In contrast to IP67 modules in comparable fieldbus solutions, which have to be wired in a line, the I/O Modules from Bihl+Wiedemann allow tree structure as a flexible cabling method. This means stubs from the main string can be created anywhere, also enhancing transparency in the network
The modules can be used flexibly and are cost-effective, making them a good alternative to comparable Ethernet or IO-Link-based I/O solutions.
Discover our wide range of I/O modules, all compatible with the current ASi-3 and/or ASi-5 standard.
The standardized fieldbus system AS-Interface (ASi) helps you drastically reduce your wiring complexity. You also benefit from free choice of topology and cost-effective integration of safety features on the same infrastructure.
