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, AS-Interface expert Tracy Molnar talks about typical customer topics she is dealing with frequently when discussing AS-Interface modules. Her three most common topics are:

  • --VAA and VBA modules and what kind of an address do I need? full address or half address?
  • --Disabling inputs on the AS-Interface G11 analog input module and why a user would be interested in doing this.
  • --Most inputs on AS-Interface digital modules are wired such that connector ports 1 and 3 also give access to inputs 2 and 4.  Use V11 3-wire cables when this is not desirable.
