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 episode of AS-Interface TechTalk, Tim and Helge continue to discuss the many outstanding features of the new AS-Interface module KE5:

  • --Latched removable connectors are keyed for position
  • --AS-Interface and AUX connectors are internally jumpered to simplify daisy-chaining modules while keeping the network running if the connector is removed from the module
  • --Numerical I/O indicator LEDs are easy to read even in nonilluminated environments
  • --Safe output separation allows output power to be disconnected safely by simply removing AUX power
