TS-8 Sensing Edges

Tapeswitch™ TS-8 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 housing material is PVC. The TS-8 being about 25% smaller than the TS-18 and slightly more sensitive. Mounting is by means of snap-in aluminum channel.

The internal switching element in this safety edges is rated for millions of operations across surface. All TS-8 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
