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 controlling and monitoring valve position using AS-Interface in combination with valve position sensors. 

  • --The components that comprise a valve assembly
  • --AS-Interface controls the valve assembly or solenoid valve
  • --How to know if the valve is stuck?
  • --Can AS-Interface control an actuator valve without a solenoid?
  • --Are different manufacturer valves, actuators, and valve position sensors compatible?
  • --Can manually operated valves be equipped with a valve position sensor and AS-Interface?
