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 week's episode, Helge Hornis continues his discussion with David Fink, National Account Manager at Pepperl+Fuchs, about using AS-Interface for valve position monitoring.

  • --What is the output of the solenoid driver on a valve position sensor?
  • --Differences between standard sensors with no solenoid output and valve position sensors with solenoid output.
  • --AS-Interface modules and their uses for valve position sensing.
  • --The myth that AS-Interface is only for low current consumption/low wattage types of applications.
