Product Updates Jul 2, 2015

Linak’s Piezo anti-collision technology is now a standard feature included on all Mercury consoles. The new leg system increases product safety and reduces risk of property damage. The built-in Piezo sensor is highly sensitive and reacts quickly to hard obstructions when raising or lowering the worksurface. No additional programming is required by the user.

Please remember these important product features:

  • The Piezo sensor does not replace personal safety habits. Continue to keep pinch points clear at all times to prevent bodily injury and damage to furniture and equipment.
  • A desk with a heavier load will react slower than one with minimal ancillary equipment.
  • If the collision happens close to the leg column the stop will engage slower than a collision near the desk edge.
  • The sensor will engage only when the height adjustability feature is in use.
  • During the first second of height adjustment, the sensor will not prompt a full-stop.
  • Soft objects like chairs may not register as hard obstructions. Consequently, the sensor may not engage or react slowly.

Due to hardware fit and availability, the Piezo anti-collision technology is only available for Mercury consoles.
