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.

Many AS-Interface gateways on the market have some kind of LC-display.  In today’s TechTalk Tim and Helge explain why such displays are helpful during the engineering as well as during the operating phase.

  • - Identifying missing slaves
  • - Detecting unknown slaves on the network
  • - Earth fault and peripheral fault
  • - Other functions accessible via the display and function keys
  • - Accessing the AS-Interface counters
  • - Set outputs, read inputs
