The new Plug´N´Sense System – Already classic!
The new Plug´N´Sense System – Already classic!

The first generation of the Plug´N´Sense System was launched in 2012 and started a little revolution. Intense training was not necessary anymore to assemble a safety contact edge. After reading the instructions and a practical try one was enabled to assemble a complete and well-functioning contact edge. Since then several imitations failed regarding simplicity, compactness and reliability.

Even more bad news for the competition: the new Plug´N´Sense System with KS 4 plug is available for order at attractive prices from now on. The two contact edges SENTIR edge 25.30 and 25.45 are available with the Plug´N´Sense System.

In the course of the year, further SENTIR edge designs will be launched, that also work with the new system. In the medium-term the whole SENTIR edge range is supposed to be available with the Plug´N´Sense System.

ASO Safety Solutions celebrates 30th anniversary

On October 15th, exactly 30 years ago, the ASO GmbH was founded in Salzkotten (Germany). At this point nobody could foresee ASO´s development in the present.

Three decades later Managing Director Helmut Friedrich can look at an eventful company history: Today ASO Safety Solutions develops, produces and distributes sensors and drive technology for the door, gate and mechanical engineering market at 5 locations all around the world.

A special milestone of the recent company history is the relocation of ASO´s headquarter from Salzkotten to Lippstadt at the beginning of 2014. The relocation emphasizes the positive development of ASO.

The next important step will be the R+T 2015 in Stuttgart. R+T is the most important trade show for the worldwide door and gate market and ASO expects it to be as successful as in the past years!
