Pepperl+Fuchs’ AS-Interface was designed to alleviate the problems associated with high installation cost and difficult troubleshooting of manufacturing and metalworking safety systems. After its initial success as an industrial networking solution, AS-Interface was ready for use in safety applications. AS-Interface Safety at Work is an integral part of a normal AS-Interface network and does not require a separate system. Since the safety data run over the same physical network, users gain important benefits. Safety modules can be placed where needed, even late in the project. The system monitors the status of the safety inputs and the safety relay. It can associate multiple safety inputs with one relay or associate one input with multiple relays.
