Certified and ready to use, ASi-5 Safety is more than ever the simplest and most cost-effective way to collect safe and non-safe signals in the field and make them available for automation solutions. The entry level is low in terms of integration and costs, operating and work processes have become even simpler despite of a more complex technology. And with respect to the bus capacity, ASi-5 Safety as the optimal complement to ASi Safety at Work, opens up completely new horizons for the future.

Setting up buffer and accumulation units for a stationary material flow system - and implementing it regardless of the drives used, without any complex PLC programming and scalable as desired from the simple straight conveyor line to systems with multiple infeed and outfeed points to stand-alone solutions with safety technology. This is possible with Zero Pressure Accumulation (ZPA) using AS-Interface and an intuitively operable software from Bihl+Wiedemann.

Simplicity – this is the promise of AS-Interface. An assurance upon which ASi professionals as well as users

of the wiring technology for whom ASi-5 and ASi-3 is new territory can rely. Because Bihl+Wiedemann offers a whole range of useful tools for simple planning, installation, addressing, commissioning and diagnostics of ASi applications: software suites whose programs make planning, configuration and commissioning of ASi networks easy, a new ASi-5/ASi-3 address programming device for the best in-place user experience as well as diagnostic tools that are also suitable for release measurements and the acceptance of systems..

They are often several kilometers long – the automated material flow lines for modern material handling systems in logistic centers or in complex production environments. And always found there: all kinds of sensors, switches, measuring devices, scanners, drives, control panels and safety systems. Large stretches, many devices, both standard and safety signals as well as simple and complex tasks – ideally all within one single application. Just the environment for which the wiring technology AS-Interface has been created, with its combinable ASi-5 and ASi-3 solutions as the perfect mix for any requirement..

As pioneers in introducing ASi-5 technology, Bihl+Wiedemann can look back on nearly three years of product and user experience. Many new products, continual improvements and added functionalities, feedback from users about their experience and the recognition that ASi-5 is today in many cases the more efficient alternative to Ethernet-based solutions in the field. This and more are covered in the interview with Paul Werge, Product Manager at Bihl+Wiedemann.

Tired of expensive network components requiring their own individual Ethernet connection? No time for complex planning of the

Ethernet connection with expensive and cumbersome wiring and maintenance for ports that don’t even get used? How can you justify expensive, pre-assembled cables, connectors and switches when they’re no longer necessary – keyword: significantly reduced material costs? No need for complicated commissioning or M12 cables that were ordered too short? Would you prefer cost-effective field modules that can be wired quickly and cost-efficiently in any topology, that are always up and running and whose design ensures errorless installation? Then ASi-5 is exactly right for you.
