The Sharp Edge Tester is used for determining the sharpness of edges of electrical equipment and other consumer products. This kit meets Underwriters Laboratories (UL) standard 1439 and Society of Manufacturing Engineers requirements. It is made of tough metal (not plastic) housing which fits ergonomically into the palm of the hand. Features include a compact arm, sealed ball bearings to reduce friction and a spring which meets the latest UL force requirement. All moving mechanisms are protected against dirt and breakage.

The SE400K is also used for compliance with US Federal regulations for consumer products. It also meets requirements for Canadian regulations. The US Federal regulation is Title 16, Volume 2, Chapter 11, Part 1500. The arm pressure can be adjusted over a wide range to accommodate all regulations and custom requirements.  This replaces model SE300K.


CAP50 Model SE400K kit: consists of the Sharp Edge Tester instrument and 51 Tape Caps. The tape caps are constructed to meet the latest revised UL standards. They consist of three pre-assembled tapes on a plastic cap. The cap slips onto the SE400K mandrel for testing. The tape caps are constructed using three layers: one layer of black foam tape, one layer of white tape; and one layer of skived Teflon® tape. The caps are interchangeable with sharp edge testers made by other manufacturers.

The Tape cap is the most efficient way for the inspector to easily and quickly conduct multiple tests. Each time a test is performed with the tape cap, it can be removed, identified and replaced within seconds thus providing more tests in less time to facilitate inspection reports.
