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 safe remote outputs allow safe control far away from the main controls enclosure.  With AS-Interface safe outputs, users will no longer have to run high voltage over great distances, reducing wiring even further.  Users must understand the safe output concept.

  • - Safe address -- these addresses are generated inside the Safety Monitor and are then used to signal safe switch states to the remote safe-output modules
  • - Diagnostics address -- each safe-output module is assigned a diagnostics address offering status data exchange and input frequently used for EDM
