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.

Encoders and other types of intelligent modules -- Using encoders, intelligent sensors, and valve control on AS-Interface is easy. Just like on any other network, these encoders are always "absolute." Intelligent sensors come equipped with the AS-Interface chip and are connected directly to the network.  Valve control...

AS-Interface I/O modules are where the action is.  This is where the sensors are connected and machines are controlled.  In this episode we are covering:

  • --Connecting I/O modules to the network and AUX power
  • --Typically, inputs are powered from AS-Interface, outputs are powered from AUX
  • --Some types of modules have AUX...
