Automation light grids


Two-dimensional inspection or counting tasks are important in automation. SICK’s automation light grids can be used in a number of these solutions, such as detecting and counting irregularly shaped objects, people and vehicles, and checking for presence and pallet overhang detection. The tasks are so versatile that one light grid cannot fulfill the requirements of every application. Light grids from SICK offer multiple ranges, heights, sizes, orientations, and resolutions which simplify integration through high flexibility and performance

Detection and ranging solutions


The LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) laser measurement technology offers solutions for a wide range of applications. The two- or more-dimension contour data recorded can be processed both internally and externally. The technology is ideal for indoor and outdoor applications, for example anti-collision in ports, classification in traffic, detection in building automation, or position evaluation in navigation, for example.

Distance sensors


SICK has a wide range of optic and ultrasonic solutions that measure from sub-microns to kilometers. They solve measuring, detecting and positioning applications using triangulation and time-of-flight modes. Sensors using triangulation are ideal for short-range, highly precise measurement. They can inspect miniature parts, thickness and shape, etc. Time-of-flight sensors work at longer distances, are not influenced by reflectivity or ambient light − perfect for positioning AS/RS, rail cars and gantry cranes.

Encoders and inclination sensors


Paths, position, angle – an encoder is the ideal solution when it comes to precise position detection in industrial automation. The same applies to measuring revolutions and rpm as well as speed and acceleration. High-resolution optical encoders and extremely rugged magnetic encoders complement one another perfectly and permit exact measurements in all kinds of applications. Rotary encoders are available as incremental and absolute encoders. Wire draw encoders and linear encoders with a measuring element are available in linear measuring technology.

The range is capped off by inclination sensors that enable non-contact detection of angles in one or two axes.

Motor feedback systems


Commutation, position and speed measurement with the corresponding number of interfaces used to require three sensors. Today, SICK motor feedback systems offer these functions in a single device. A consistent mechanical interface allows for a high level of flexibility. SICK motor feedback systems are also setting standards for electrical interfaces such as HIPERFACE® and HIPERFACE DSL®. They meet important requirements including temperature resistance, high resolution, and multiturn design. Certification to SIL2 permits implementation of the Machinery Directive as per EN ISO 13849.

 


Opto-electronic protective devices


Opto-electronic protective devices from SICK are the first choice for maximum machine and system productivity. Unlike fences and doors, they do not disrupt handling or material transport and allow a better view into the machine room. SICK's comprehensive portfolio is ideal for hazardous point protection, access protection, and hazardous area protection. The SICK’s proprietary interface, EFI, offers additional process optimization.
