Material Handling / Drive Control

AS-i really shows its strengths in material handling. The following diagram shows an overview of the cost-saving material handling and drive control from Bihl+Wiedemann.

Drive Solutions with AS-Interface

The internationally standardized AS-Interface (AS-i) wiring systemhas long become established in materials handling. Countless companies are benefiting from the easy installation, high flexibility and
low costs of AS-i.

Controlling DC motors directly

The AS-i motor modules by Bihl+Wiedemann offer a variety of drive solutions. For example, 24 V motor rollers can be controlled directly via AS-i. No additional control unit is required. Motor modules by Bihl+Wiedemann will save you valuable time and costs during commissioning and service.

Decentralised control of AC motors

There is also the option of decentralized control of drives with or without a frequency converter. This flexibility allows for the implementation of new, simpler, system structures. The following example
shows how the AS-i modules can be used in real applications.

Drive Solutions

  • Remote installation, easy maintenance

  • Reliable in use, even in extreme temperatures of up to –30 °C

  • The module connects directly to the AS-i cable, thus saving cable length
