The Safety Monitor enables safe transmission and processing of safety-relevant data from safety input slaves and safe shut-off of safety output slaves remotely over AS-i right where the potentially hazardous motion takes place. The Safety Monitor is always PLe compliant.
Bihl+Wiedemann offers the Safety Monitor for AS-i Safety at Work as a stand-alone device to expand existing AS-i networks with safety slaves. For new systems, we can provide Gateways with integrated Safety Monitor and interfaces for the most commonly used automation systems. This presents the most efficient method for safely constructing one or two AS-i networks at the same time. Employing our "Safe Link" over Ethernet, a technology to connect multiple Gateways safely over Ethernet/Profinet, even large applications with up to 1922 safety I/Os can be implemented.
For small applications with three or more safe signals, you should consider the Safety Basic Monitor, a compact safety controller without gateway but with configurable status outputs, the module allows for universal expansion and is the ideal control station for special safety applications.
