TS-47 Sensing Edges



Tapeswitch™ TS-47 Sensing Edges are designed for powered doors and other applications requiring the most sensitive switching and the fastest activation. These two pressure sensitive safety edges differ mainly in overall height and the amount of overtravel cushioning. Mounting is by means of snap-in channel that is available in three configurations: flat (aluminum or PVC) and with a straight or right-angle flange (aluminum only).

The Santoprene TPE housings of these sensing edges are resistant to water, oil, hydraulic fluids, and coolants. The internal switching elements are rated for millions of operations across surface. All TS-47 pressure-sensitive safety edges are supplied with 4-conductor Fail-Safe wiring and are compatible with Tapeswitch™ Safety Interface Modules.
