TS-16 Sensing Edges


Tapeswitch™ TS-16 Mini Sensing Edges are designed for limited space applications requiring a high sensitivity, pressure sensitive safety edge. The TS-16 sensing edges differ mainly in height and sensitivity from the TS-6. The TS-16 is 0.33 inch high and requires 1.5 pounds to activate. This pressure sensitive sensing edge has a PVC housings, which is resistant to water, oil, hydraulic fluids, and coolants. The internal switching elements are rated for millions operations across surface. They mount in snap-in channel that is available in two configurations: flat (aluminum or PVC) or with a right-angle mounting edge (aluminum only). All TS-16 pressure sensitive safety edges are supplied with 4-conductor Fail-Safe wiring and are compatible with Tapeswitch™ Safety Interface Modules.

Features & Benefits
• Low profile for limited space applications
• High sensitivity, low compliance for immediate activation
• Some over-travel allows compression after activation
• 4-conductor Fail-Safe wiring is standard

Typical Applications
• Pinch protection on scissor lifts, machinery edges, and medical tables
• Obstruction detection on automatic doors, moving shelves, and storage systems
• Commercial sensing applications
