Software

A great deal of our AS-i expertise is applied to providing you with the best possible configuration tools for AS-i Masters and Safety Monitors. The PC-based AS-i Control Tools clearly organize all important test and configuration options for your AS-i network. ASIMON360 is the right configuration software for AS-i Safety at Work. With this software you can easily design AS-i configurations directly on the computer with multi-window interfaces.

 

The Diagnostic Software can be operated intuitively and allows  PC-assisted measurement using existing hardware (Bihl+Wiedemann AS-i Master and connection cable). It assists the machine/systems builder in performing approval measurement and prophylactic troubleshooting. It also assists the end user  in executing preventive maintenance as well as a fast and independent fault elimination. Alternatively,  analysis data can be sent to our technical support. Based on this information, our technical support can provide fast and reliable assistance regarding problem handling.

 

Control III allows you to turn an AS-i Master into a mini-PLC. Software programs developed in C enable data preprocessing directly in the Gateway. In many applications the Gateway can also be used as a stand-alone device, completely omitting the need for a PLC. Our Ethernet-based devices also come with a web server enabling PC-remote diagnostics and maintenance without installing any software.
