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.

AS-Interface 'decoupling' -- AS-Interface is unique in that it routes power and communication on just one 2-conductor cable. In this episode, you'll learn:

  • What is the purpose of decoupling?
  • How standard power supplies can be used to power an AS-Interface network
  • Why AS-Interface normally runs on 30.5 VDC
  • Where can 'decoupling' take place?
  • Limits when decoupling is not part of the power supply
