BIGGER is not necessarily better when it comes to safety. SICK has recently launched the S300, the world's smallest safety laser scanner.
SICK will be showcasing the S300 at The Safety Show Sydney, from Tuesday 17 to Thursday 19 October at the Sydney Showground.
The company says the S300 was designed to reduce space requirements, weight and power consumption. It measures just 105 x 102 x 152mm3 and, according to SICK, is the most compact solution for monitoring hazardous areas up to two metres.
The device can even be installed in small machines and vehicles, and it is competitively priced.
The S300 has a 270 degree angle of view and can also be operated vertically.
The new 'baby' is just one of SICK's large range of industrial safety systems, such as photoelectric switches, light grids, laser scanners and interlocks, many of which will be on display at The Safety Show Sydney.
