Bihl+Wiedemann: ASi-5 Safety Muting Module BWU4411 – GSA25 Finalist

With the ASi-5 Safety Muting Module BWU4411, muting applications up to SIL3/PLe can be realized. Connected via the yellow ASi profile cable, the module represents the single, central collection point for all muting components & their I/O signals.


To do so, it requires only a single ASi-5 address in the safety network. Unused in- & outputs can be utilized for other applications, e.g. for controlling muting lamps. The module has an integrated power supply connection for a contactless protective device and can be configured via the ASIMON360 safety software. ASIMON360 has certified muting modules for convenient parameterization for many applications; programming in the PLC is not required.

The module only requires one ASi-5 address in the safety network, thus reducing hardware and addressing costs. During operation, BWU4411 provides important diagnostic data and the ASi-5/ASi-3 fieldbus gateways enable connectivity up to the IIOT. In addition, the cost of the muting module is only a third of the cost of comparable Ethernet-based solutions on the market.

HVI Light Plus for Lightning Protection Applications

When installing bare, uninsulated air-termination conductors on the roof, the separation distance to electrical and metal systems installed under the roof surface must be maintained in accordance with the current lightning protection standard DIN EN 62305-3. Cable installations, pipe systems or metal parts are frequently installed under the roofing in direct proximity to the air-termination system / down conductor, thus posing a proximity issue. The solution is isolated air-termination systems with high-voltage-resistant, insulated down conductors.
