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.

AS-Interface gateways keep several data lists that are useful during commissioning and troubleshooting.  These lists also play a role during the automatic node replacement procedure.  Tim and Helge explain why these lists are important, how they can be accessed, and what the PRG enable LED means.

  • - List of detected slaves
  • - List of projected slaves
  • - List of corrupted slaves
  • - List of peripheral faults
  • - List of duplicate addresses
  • - Retry-Error counter list
  • - Automatic single and multi-node replacement
