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.

Safe output modules for AS-Interface -- Safe output modules give AS-Interface networks with safety devices new capabilities.  In conjunction with the appropriate Safety Monitor or Safety Controller, it is now possible to:

  • --Deactivate a motor or other devices located anywhere in a plant
  • --Simultaneously deactivate multiple motors hundreds of meters apart
  • --Take advantage of conventional inputs on the module collecting EDM contactor monitoring feedback
  • --Independently control 16 safety groups
