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.

Analog I/O for AS-Interface -- We started talking about analog I/O modules last week but decided that this topic is important enough for a whole episode.  Working with analog data, an AS-Interface system is now so easy, it should really be considered by every user.  Tim Cicerchi also briefly talks about pneumatic modules and how they differ from a valve control module:

  • --Analog maps just like digital I/O
  • --Connecting analog sensors is very simple using pre-made cables
  • --All types of analog transducers, 2-wire, 3-wire and 4-wire, are directly supported
  • --Some modules can deal with current, voltage, and PT100 inputs
