Small safety applications can be implemented simply and cost-effectively using the freely configurable Safety Basis Monitor from Bihl+Wiedemann, consisting of a Safety Monitor and a switchable AS-i Master. The 22.5mm wide device, universally expandable with safe and standard I/O modules, provides 8/4 safe inputs or 8 standard inputs and 8 indication outputs as well as 2 (4) electronic safe outputs on-board.
An integrated USB port is provided for configuration using the ASIMON PC software. When replacing a unit, a chip card transfers all the information to the new module. For safety applications with up to 10 safe signals no external power supply is needed.
