ASi-5/ASi-3 address programming device – continuously improved thanks to constant updates
Benefit from the continuous further development of the ASi-5/ASi-3 address programming device (BW4925). New functions are regularly available via free field updates – currently, for example, extended setting and diagnostic options as well as the very clear display menu. Of course, this also applies to all BW4925's already in use.

Control (digital) RGB/RGBW LED Stripes with ASi-5 easy and cost effective
With our new active distributors ASi-5 BWU4083 and BWU4101 you can easily control almost all common (digital) LED Stripes - thanks to the separate profiles for RGB and RGBW as well as the intuitive configuration via the cyclic data. Another advantage: The modules allow a flexible connection of the LED Stripes, the supply of the LED Stripes is done out of AUX.

New 24 V Brake Chopper Manages the Feedback of Generative Energy
Our product portfolio for Material Handling and Drive Control is growing: the new 24 V brake chopper BWU4915 is now available. The extremely flat brake chopper limits the overvoltage that occurs during braking when operating 24 V roller drives. This prevents unwanted mains disconnections or error messages due to overload.

Free yourself from current delivery shortages. Use our new I/O product family for this purpose – and obtain all the devices you need in sufficient quantities even in the future. When developing the new modules, we have paid particular attention to two things: Firstly, that we only use components that are available in large quantities even in extremely difficult procurement markets. Secondly, the focus in designing the modules was to develop a high-performance and cost-efficient technology.

Control DGM/DGM-R drives comfortable and save costs
With our ASi-5 PCB modules, it is possible to add an ASi-5 interface to a wide range of applications. The control elements shown in the figure below are a typical example of this. By means of the compact PCB modules (W / H / D: 70 x 40 x 26.5 mm), they can be easily integrated into the control system via ASi – decentralized and in an existing housing.
