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.

In this flashback episode, Tim and Helge discuss how AS-interface power supplies are different in several aspects.  AS-Interface power supplies provide a higher primary voltage and contain the decoupling circuit-enabling data and communication on the same cable.  Tim and Helge cover how to determine the size of the AS-Interface power supply.

  • -- AS-Interface power supply
  • -- Voltage
  • -- Current
  • -- How to size the power supply
  • -- Grounding and ground fault detection
