TS-18 Sensing Edges



Tapeswitch™ TS-18 Mini Sensing Edges are designed for limited space applications where pressure sensitive safety edges with end caps are desirable for cosmetic or environmental reasons. The TS-18 sensing edges housing material is EPDM. Mounting is by means of snap-in aluminum channel.

The EPDM rubber housing is resistant to water, oil, hydraulic fluids, and coolants and has a wider temperature range than PVC. The internal switching element is rated for millions of operations across surface. TS-18 Pressure Sensitive Sensing 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
• End caps for cosmetic or environmental concerns
• Some over-travel allows compression after activation
• 4-conductor Fail-Safe wiring is standard

Typical Applications
• Pinch protection on machinery edges, and medical tables
• Signaling or personnel protection on machining centers
• General switching applications requiring a large switching surface
