What are Tapeswitch Mats?

Tapeswitch mats are pressure-sensitive switches designed to detect personnel or objects in a variety of applications. A mat will operate when pressure, which usually comes from a person’s foot, is applied to the mat’s surface.

When used as a safety device, mats are used to guard the floor around a machine or hazardous area. They can provide primary guarding, where other types of guarding may be uneccessary and impractical for your working environment, and can also provide secondary guarding when used in conjunction with an interlocked fence or light curtain, to protect awkwardly shaped machines.
