Pepperl+Fuchs Podcasts


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.

EDM or External Device Monitoring is a process by which the proper operation of contactors or master control relays are evaluated.  This is not an AS-Interface-specific topic, but listeners may be interested in understanding the level of flexibility Safety at Work brings to the application.

  • - Feedback signal -- Safety at Work supports normally open and normally closed feedback
  • - Feedback timing -- Switch delay between the safe output and the feedback signal
  • - Feedback signal connections -- On-board connection, standard input connection, and input on a safe output module
