Safety edges are used for the safeguarding of closing edges at pinch and shear points. These are categorised among the tactile sensors within the Safety Sensors product category. Here, pressure-sensitive sensors are used, and as soon as physical resistance is detected, the movement stops. Thus, accidents and damage to machinery can be avoided. Safety edges, also known as safety contact strips, are used with automated gates, machines, handling equipment, and platform elements.
What sets the safety edges from manufacturer ASO Safety Solutions apart?
The manufacturer ASO Safety Solutions is a specialist in the field of safety sensors, and its patented Sentir® edge safety edges are characterised by their high quality and wide range of variants.
The safety edges from ASO Safety Solutions offer the following advantages:
The safety edges feature a chamber-in-chamber system. As such, the interior circuit is protected against external influences. The system functions by means of the closed-circuit principle. This means that as soon as the safety edge is touched, a short circuit is triggered inside the strip. This is detected and triggers the stopping of the movement. The run-on chamber compensates for the kinetic energy, i.e., the movement energy, of the machines and systems.
At Automation24, within the Safety Technology product category, you can purchase a selection of safety edges from ASO Safety Solutions online.
You can also avail of a special service and order custom safety edges using the configurator. Simply enter your required lengths. Prior to shipping, the safety edge will be cut to size according to your specifications. On top of this, the strips are sealed by installing, the contact connector and fitting the end caps. For optimal connection, you can choose between various cable routing lengths. Finally, checks to ensure functionality are performed and logged. On request, you can also order the compatible aluminium profile.
It is possible to connect safety edges of two different types. One method is the industry-standard 4-wire connection, also known as cross-circuit detection. This works with a wide range of safety relays and safety controllers. The alternative option has been especially developed by ASO Safety Solutions. The advantage here lies in the reduced level of wiring work required. To this end, a safety relay and a suitable terminal resistor are required, which can be found among the accessories for safety sensors. Both versions can also be used with the safety mats and safety bumpers from ASO Safety Solutions.
