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.

Automatic single node replace -- Replacing a single failed AS-Interface module is simple. Remove the failed module and replace it with an identical replacement module. In addition to using an identical replacement module, the AS-Interface gateway must be in protected mode, i.e., there cannot be a configuration error.  Pepperl+Fuchs' gateways even support automatic multi-node replacement - just keep an eye on the PRG enable LED.
