Description

Increase the distance between your sensor and the Tekscan sensor scanning handle (electronics) with Tekscan's reusable Tab extender. Sensors can now be used in hard to reach places and applications that require the sensor scanning handle to be a greater distance from the sensor.  The extenders come in two versions: Flex-Circuit and Ribbon Cable. Both are available in standard and high temperature. 

Applications

  • Pinch/Nip rollers
  • Inaccessible locations (between pipes)
  • Hazardous or unsafe enviornments
  • Accessibility (large objects in the way)

Features

  • Resuable
  • Can attach multiple tab extenders to each other for even greater reach
  • Compatible with most sensors that have a tab connection (Evolution & VersaTek electronics)
  • Compatible with sensors 0.004 in (0.1 mm.) to 0.012 in (0.3 mm.) thick

 Ideal for applications that need 470 mm (18.5 in.) spacing between the electronics and sensor.
