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.

Years ago, Pepperl+Fuchs offered a line of KF and KF2 AS-Interface modules.  These were very popular and are found in many process automation applications.  Tim and Helge discuss what users need to be aware of when they replace a KF/KF2 module with a modern KE module.  Tim even mentions a nice trick that allows users to be able to replace a failed AS-Interface KF/KF2 module in 10 seconds.
