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.

When installing AS-Interface, pay attention to how the AS-Interface cable and a 24 VDC AUX cable are routed together.

  • --DON'T strap an AUX power cable to an AS-Interface yellow cable
  • --DO separate the AS-Interface cable at least 20 cm (8") from a noisy AUX cable
  • --DON'T strap the black AUX to the yellow AS-Interface cable
  • --If a noisy power cable needs to cross a communication cable (like AS-Interface), DO so at 90 degrees
