Pepperl+Fuchs Podcasts


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 analog input module -- Tim and Helge are discussing a 2-input AS-Interface analog module VBA-2E-G11-I/U/PT100/F capable of servicing current, voltage, and temperature probes.

  • --The input section specifies what kind of analog transducer can be connected.
  • --The data sheet specifies if the inputs are powered from AS-Interface or AUX. Tim also explains why this is needed.
  • --Accuracy is one of the most important parameter user look at.
  • --Scaling has to do with the numbers as they show up in the PLC. Our modules scale such that 20 mA corresponds to 20,000 and 10 V is presented as 10,000.
