About us

Bihl+Wiedemann GmbH was founded in 1992 in Mannheim, Germany by Jochen Bihl and Bernhard Wiedemann. The highly specialized engineering firm is among the leading providers of safety technology and electronic components for automation technology using AS-Interface. 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. Additionally to the company's headquarters in Mannheim, Bihl+Wiedemann has subsidiaries in Turkey, Denmark, USA, and China. International sales partners ensure Bihl+Wiedemann's presence around the world.
