IO-Link with Bihl+Wiedemann - Easy, Flexible & Cost-efficient
In many application scenarios, IO-Link solutions from Bihl+Wiedemann are much more cost-efficient than similar solutions from other providers. An application with Bihl+Wiedemann is already cheaper than comparable PROFINET variants from three 4-port IO-Link masters. Another factor is the finer granularity. Our 1-port IO-Link master allows you to integrate an IO-Link device exactly where you need it. Thanks to cable-piercing technology, it is extremely easy to install our IO-Link master.
New ASi-5 Module with integrated IO-Link Master from Bihl+Wiedemann
IO-Link is an integral part of ASi-5. Paul Werge, Product Manager at Bihl+Wiedemann presents the new ASi-5 Slave/IO-Link Master at Hanover Fair 2019. The new ASi-5 Slave/IO-Link Master is able to integrate any IO-Link devices into ASi. Up to 32 bytes of process data can be configured. The IO-Link participants can be configured conveniently using our ASIMON360 configuration tool. Even the sensor exchange works full automatically without any additional efforts for parameter downloads.
ASi-5 and IO-Link
Jochen Bihl introduces the ASi-5 module with integrated IO-Link Master with 4 ports from Bihl+Wiedemann. The ASi-5 module can transmit up to 32 bytes of I/O cyclic data – which fits IO-Link perfectly. By default the modules transmit over AS-i a total of 8 bytes – 2 bytes per port – in 1.27 ms.
AS-Interface and IO-Link
Jochen Bihl explains why AS-Interface and IO-Link are ideal partners on the field level. With ASi / IO-Link modules by Bihl+Wiedemann you can incorporate intelligent IO-Link sensors and actuators into ASi – right where they are located. Configuration of the IO-Link sensors is easily done using the configuration tool by Bihl+Wiedemann. Sensors can be replaced without cumbersome parameter downloading as well.
ASi Cable - Simple and Efficient Power Distribution
Distribute a lot of power easily, save plenty of assembly time and reduce costs at the same time – with the ASi cable, you benefit in many ways. Thanks to ASi piercing technology, it is possible to connect, replace, move or add modules very easily. Thanks to profile cables and piercing technology, ASi wiring couldn't be any more simple because you don't need different pre-assembled connection cables, so you spare plenty of costly assembly time.
