QS-4500 Collision Sensor

qs4500_corner_122008newThe QS-4500 is a dynamically variable collision sensor that operates on an air pressure system – and provides excellent protection in harsh environmental conditions.

A regulated air supply provides positive, variable pressure to hold the collision sensor rigid during normal operation. At impact, the air chamber seal is opened, immediately signaling the system controller.

Key Benefits

  • Dynamically variable trip points
  • Permanent repeatability
  • Detects angular, rotational and compressive forces
