Bihl+Wiedemann has added to its portfolio of products an
AS-i 3.0 EtherNet/IP +
Modbus TCP Gateway with integrated Safety Monitor (BWU2821). This device allows
a very simple integration of safety systems into standard PLCs, where the
safety is programmed and controlled not in the PLC, but in the Gateway itself.
Via Safe Link many Gateways can be linked together to achieve systems
with almost 2000 2-channel safe inputs. This device allows the user to save
money since a safety PLC is no longer required and at the same time all
advantages of a 2-wire safety network can be used with a very simple and time
The AS-i 3.0
EtherNet/IP Gateway, available in the version "1 Gateway, 1 Power
Supply for 2 AS-i circuits,"
features 2 AS-i 3.0 Master for 2 AS-i circuits and is equipped with advanced
diagnostic functions, such as duplicate address recognition, integrated AS-i
earth fault detector, AS-i noise detector as well as an Ethernet Diagnostic
Interface. Three 2-channel safe inputs and six safe outputs are already
integrated within the device. And with the integrated Chip Card the
configuration data can be easily stored and transferred.
