Pressure-sensitive sensing edges are generally used to protect personnel from injury or equipment from damage. In industrial environments, they can be used to mechanize door edges to detect obstacles or scissor lifts to provide anti-pinch protection. They are suitable for collision sensors on AGVs, collision detectors on mobile platforms, and positioning switches on mobile conveyor belts. In medical applications, such as scanners, HL-1602 they can protect patients from moving parts of the device.
The safety edge is a touch-sensitive switch that can send a signal to start, stop or reverse the motor, and even ring a bell. Since they usually work at 24 volts, the application possibilities are endless.
