Book Offers Tips for AS-Interface Installations
01 May 2008
Pepperl+Fuchs, in conjunction with the AS-Interface Association and the AS-Interface Academy, have published a booklet to help users install and commission AS-Interface networks. The booklet guides the reader through aspects such as network design, topology and configuration and is the ideal companion for anyone designing, installing, commissioning or maintaining an AS-Interface network.
Firmly established as one of the most accessible and simplest industrial I/O networks, AS-Interface is amongst the best supported open networks with well over 100 manufacturers offering AS-Interface products.
The booklet includes two checklists for the reader to use. The Project checklist covers questions such as addressing and configuration, whilst the Sign Off checklist covers installation issues such as cable routing and documentation.
Consideration is given to cable selection and EMC requirements as well as power supply requirements. The ‘Tips and Tricks’ section offers users some interesting ideas for fault finding and improving the installation quality.
The guide will be an essential aid for new users of AS-interface and also a useful reminder for those more familiar with AS-interface systems. Free copies are available on request from Pepperl+Fuchs on 0161 6336431, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
