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 AS-Interface installations get older, "non- exact" module replacements get more important. This week we will cover replacing 2-input safety modules and an integrated safety e-stop. Other items discussed are the AS-Interface power supply, gateway, repeater, and the latching safety door switch. You can also use the AS-Interface Power Calculator to help you verify the configuration of your AS-Interface network.
