Whether a sensor, switch or pushbutton has an AS-i interface or not is completely irrelevant for the AS-Interface user in the future. Thanks to the active distributors with integrated AS-i chip from Bihl + Wiedemann With its diverse connection options, he now has every freedom in the design of his system.
Whether standard application or safety application, with the appropriate active distributor, he can always use exactly the device that best suits the respective application without additional hardware.
New in the range are three active distributors for AS-i safety applications. Due to their pin assignment, the distributors BWU3565 and BWU3635 are suitable for connecting the door tumblers AZM400 or AZM200 / AZM201 / AZM300 / MZM100 from Schmersal and the distributor BWU3488 for connecting the door tumblers PSENslock and PSENcode from Pilz to AS-i.
The three active AS-i Safety distributors each have a two-channel safe input, a digital input and a digital output. Inputs and outputs are supplied from AUX (24 V auxiliary power), the connection of AS-i and AUX via profile cable. The connection of peripheral devices is realized via an M12 cable socket (straight, 8-pin). Due to the particularly flat design (60 x 45 x 19 mm), the modules implemented in IP67 are suitable for mounting in the cable duct as well as for individual installation paths.
