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 go over SafeLink for AS-Interface gateways. SafeLink allows safe data on an AS-Interface gateway to be shared with other gateways using Ethernet. On SafeLink, 31 gateways with integrated safety controller can interconnect and share data.  With SafeLink users can:

  • --Design safety systems of essentially unlimited size
  • --Make it easy to follow international regulations concerning e-stopping any machine that is in visual range of the e-stop button 
  • --Utilize a private Ethernet network to exchange SafeLink data, or,
  • --Utilize the fieldbus network instead
