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.

Analog data for AS-Interface -- This week Tim talks about the universal AS-Interface analog input module in the G11 housing.  This analog input module offers exceptional application flexibility and:

  • --Powers the transducers from either AS-Interface or AUX power
  • --Allows any combination of current, voltage or PT100 inputs
  • --Auto detects what kind of transducer has been connected
  • --Its operation can also be modified using its parameter bits
  • --Allows single-channel operation by jumper-deactivation of channel 2
