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 is frequently used by mounting modules inside of cabinets and junction boxes. Many suppliers offer IP20 devices, but Pepperl+Fuchs' KE and KE1 AS-Interface modules are unique and offer a number of significant advantages:

  • --Color-coded removable terminals speed up installation and maintenance
  • --Versions with electronic and relay outputs add application flexibility
  • --DIP switch selectable AS-Interface/AUX sensor power
  • --Shallow KE1 design is ideal for compact junction boxes
  • --Port-specific output overload indication for fast troubleshooting
