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.

The low-cost, compact KE4 Basic Monitor can be configured as a stand-alone device, performing safe and non-safe control tasks.  By combining the KE4 with AS-Interface, it becomes a surprisingly powerful micro safety PLC.

  • - On-board I/O -- eight inputs and eight outputs
  • - Flexible I/O configuration -- mix safe and non-safe I/O as needed
  • - Expanding the I/O -- add up to 31 safe and/or 62 non-safe I/O on the AS-Interface expansion port. Examples can be found on our AS-Interface website
