The optical safety edges are made of EPDM rubber (resistant to temperatures ranging from -50° to +150°) and a system of watertight reception/transmission photocells, very small, used in industrial applications and already tested in very hostile environments such as tunnel washing systems.
The operation is very simple: when the rubber is deformed by an external body, the cell radius is interrupted. Then, information is transmitted to a card with active safety system with input for automatic operation control.
The edge can be compressed by more than 1 cm (FEEL-HG20) along its entire length (including photocells) without detection. This enables safe use on shutters or sectional doors.
The IP68 resin, the infrared technology (emission through fluids) and the absence of electricity in the rubber ensure operation under any conditions, even in case of water infiltration into the profile
The safety edge works even when bent thanks to the powerful infrared beam (through fluids) and reflection within the profile.
The interlocking rubber profile enables quick installation, while the cable of the photocell can pass through quick and easy: no screws, glue or silicone. The photocells are inserted into the profile and connected to the amplifier. In just a few steps, the safety edge is ready to stand the test of time.
The profile FEEL-LG20 can be placed either horizontally (doors) or vertically (gates). The plastic cover can be removed to maintain the appearance of the gate unaltered.
