In 1995 Bihl+Wiedemann was the first company to receive a certificate from AS-International for their AS-i Master. The Master is now used as a reference for the certification for AS-i slaves. Other milestones in the company's history include the introduction of the first AS-i Master for specification 3.0, the release of the first AS-i Master in a stainless steel housing with expanded diagnostic functions (2004), and the membership in AS-Interface's Safety Consortium (2005). Since then Bihl+Wiedemann is among the top names in the field of safety technology using AS-i Safety at Work.

  • Control safe drives with Safety over EtherCAT (FSoE)

    The new AS-i 3.0 EtherCAT Gateway with integrated safety monitor, Safety over EtherCAT (BWU3418), from Bihl+Wiedemann can – as an FSoE Master – safely control and monitor safe drives with an FSoE connection without any additional higher level safety controller. The drives are controlled as usual by the standard controller. The Safety over EtherCAT Gateway takes over the safety part and turns the drives off when necessary.

    Naturally Bihl+Wiedemann also offers safety gateways for combinations with a safety PLC (F-CPU): PROFIsafe over PROFIBUS, PROFIsafe over PROFINET, CIP Safety over Sercos, CIP Safety over EtherNet/IP and Safety over EtherCAT as slave.
