Sensing Edge

Safety edges are used wherever moving edges pose a hazard to people. The hazardous areas are protected by hollow rubber profiles. As soon as a person or object touches them, the sensing profile is deformed and the potentially hazardous movement stops.

The safety edges must meet a variety of requirements in these very different application areas. These requirements can be classified in three groups, as follows:

Safety

The safety requirements to be met by the safety edges are determined through a hazard analysis and risk assessment. The safety edges must also be approved by a certification agency.

Reliability

Non-operational safety facilities result in machine downtimes and have a major influence on the work flow. High availability of the system used is therefore absolutely essential. In addition, the safety edge must also be resistant to ambient influences, such as moisture, dirt, vibrations and corrosive media.

Cost Efficiency

Customers benefit from the simple installation, short delivery times and simple logistics

Further Accessories

To have a complete safe guarding system you may also need a few more componments: a control unit which processes the signal of the sensing edge and controls the dignal out put as well as durable coiled cables.
