Jochen Bihl shows that the safety monitors from Bihl+Wiedemann are able to safely control various drives independently. This is possible due to the great teamwork with many drive manufacturers. ASi 3.0 CIP Safety over Sercos Gateway ( BWU3160 ), for example, acts as a safety PLC for drives from Bosch Rexroth – with the help of CIP Safety over Sercos. ASi-3 Safety over EtherCAT Gateway ( BWU3418 ) can safely monitor and control drives that communicate over FSoE . At the same time advantages of ASi and ASi Safety can be exploited on the lowest field level.
