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.

AS-Interface safe coupling -- in the past, situations where safe data had to be shared between separate independent system users used a trick, where a safe output on one AS-Interface network was connected to a safe input on another. Later, the ability to share an entire network between several AS-Interface gateways was...

AS-Interface Safety Code Substitution -- In this episode Tim mentions that AS-Interface Safety at Work is based on the transmission of dynamic data called the "safety code". While the dynamics of the data is required so that the Safety Monitor can determine what is going on at the safe inputs. To simplify diagnostics...

AS-Interface parameter bits -- This week Tim explains what AS-Interface parameter bits are. Using AS-Interface parameter bits users can configure AS-Interface modules to perform certain operations.  Users should know that the default operation of the modules have been selected to cover nearly all cases and modifying the...

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...
