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.

The AS-Interface cable is a crucial component supporting the piercing technology that makes this networking technology easy to work with, speeding up the installation and ultimately reducing the cost of a system.  Users can choose rubberized or oil resistant AS-Interface flat cable.  Round cable can also be used as long as it satisfies the specification in terms of capacitance, resistance, and inductance.
