TS-46 Sensing Edges



Tapeswitch™ TS-46 Sensing Edges are general purpose, medium profile, pressure sensitive safety edges. They have some compliance before activation, eliminating nuisance tripping, and provide about ¾ inch of overtravel cushioning after activation. Mounting is in crimpable aluminum channel (flat or angle), which is more tamper-resistant than snap-in channel.

The Santoprene TPE housing is resistant to water, oil, hydraulic fluids, and coolants. The internal switching element is rated for millions of operations across surface. All TS-46 Pressure Sensitive Sensing Edges are supplied with 4-conductor Fail-Safe wiring and are compatible with Tapeswitch™ Safety Interface Modules.
