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 Safety Monitor -- The Safety Monitor is the safety controller of an AS-Interface Safety at Work system. As a PL e rated device it is able to be used in the most demanding safety applications. The VAS-2A8L-KE4-8SE Safety Monitor introduced here can process safety date data from up to 31 safe rated devices (e-stops, door switches, modules ...) connected to the network and 4 safe rated inputs connected locally to the Safety Monitor directly

  • --Rated to PL e for highest safety requirements
  • --Integrated memory card
  • --On-board safe and non-safe inputs / outputs
  • --Two safe rated electronic safe outputs
  • --USB configuration and diagnostics interface
  • --Full standalone operation
