AS-Interface E-stop Switches

Sept. 1, 2008
A family of Emergency Stop switches with integrated Safety at Work functionality are powered by the AS-Interface network and can be installed in field or panel-mount applications.
Field and panel-mount models are available in wide-angle illuminated and non-illuminated versions. Illuminated models are lit with a high intensity LED that is not activated by the button but is controlled by a PLC. The field-mountable versions eliminate wiring and feature an M12 connector that is said to work in conjunction with the vendor’s flat-to-round cable adapters to reduce installation time to less than 60 seconds. Panel-mount versions include connection cable that is cut to length and connects to the AS-Interface network using the vendor’s flat cable-to-terminal adapter, or the terminals of other nearby enclosure-mount modules.Pepperl+Fuchs www.am.pepperl-fuchs.com330.486.0001
