Review: Visit us at Hannover Messe

Using SafeLink from Bihl+Wiedemann you can not only connect multiple ASi networks in a highly efficient manner, but also link the safety technology in systems which use different controllers in the non-safety area. Additional information on this topic as well as the  advantages of the I/O modules compared with other systems can be found in the current edition of our AS-Interface Master News magazine .
