Guardscan safety edge
The Guardscan safety edge consists of three components: Two conductive tracks and a rubber profile that holds the two conductive tracks. If the rubber profile is pressed in, this causes the two conductive tracks to make contact. This contact can be detected by a control unit.
These contact safety edges are generally used to turn off a movement. Common application examples are their use as a foot protection safety edge on a flat lift table or as a contact strip on a platform extension.
