Omron Scientific Technologies' SGE-88 and SGE-1510 safety contact strips
SAFETY ON MOVING PARTS
IP 65-protected SGE-88 and SGE-1510 safety contact strips are both offered in EDPM for resistance to ozone and weathering, while also making them suited for use in applications with exposure to aggressive chemicals. The safety contact strips can be an integral part of many machine safeguarding solutions. They deliver response in any number of potential application hazards, including gates, doors, machines, automatic mixers and scissor lifts. Safety edges can be fixed to the edge of a moving part where there is a risk of a crushing or shearing hazard. If the moving part that includes the safety edge strikes an operator (or vice versa), the flexible safety edge is depressed and will send a signal to the power source to stop.
