Pepperl+Fuchs’ TechTalk helps listeners gain an insight into modern automation technologies by focusing on AS-Interface (Actuator Sensor Interface) and its associated safety technology, Safety at Work. TechTalk covers topics that range from hardware selection to installation and maintenance. Control engineers familiar with AS-Interface will get the latest news on specification enhancements, hear about new products, and familiarize themselves with established and cutting-edge troubleshooting methods, tips, and tricks.  Users who are interested in applying these technologies will learn what it takes to set up an AS-Interface system, how Safety at Work improves safety systems, and why those technologies have the potential to save time and money during all phases of a project.

Virtually every machine uses e-stops to bring them to a safe, no-power state. With AS-Interface, the most common e-stop is designed so that all the necessary electronics are part of the e-stop.

But there is another approach: combining a more conventional dumb e-stop with a very small AS-Interface G10 safety module....

Safe, contact-expansion relay modules for AS-Interface are used to expand the number of available safety outputs in cases where modern electronic safe outputs cannot be used.  Because they have no mechanical components that are more prone to fail, this approach has numerous advantageous for AS-Interface networks:

This episode discusses more “slightly unusual” application-solver devices that make AS-Interface great.

The AS-Interface Movimot module is a great solution when AS-Interface is used to control the SEW MOVIMOT Gearmotor with integrated frequency inverter.

The Pepperl+Fuchs PTC protected passive splitter is used to...
