closing edgeThe sensor part of the safety edge or closing edge is positioned directly behind the front portion of the rubber profile. Separation of the contact position does not rely on a bending of the contact chain, but on the re-direction of the external radial forces to internal axial forces.
closing edge: Actuation will commence at low actuating forces and after a very short response travel, providing a fast response time. The full remaining height of the rubber profile is available as an over-travel. In particular with regard to the prevention of injuries, large over-travels are of enormous importance for a safety sensitive edge, closing edge.
Because of the rotationally symmetrical design of the contact chain, our closing edge, edges can theoretically be operated from any direction, that is, their sensitive range covers 360°.
The Machinery Directive states that dangerous machines may only be put into operation, if comprehensive safety measures have been taken to protect the personnel working with these machines.
