Business Name: Sick Pty Ltd


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 proprietary interface, EFI, offers
additional process optimization.

Safety laser scanners

Safety first efficient
solutions for industrial protection

SICK uses its vast to create safety laser scanners with maximum
performance. Whether mobile or stationary, for area protection or access
protection our comprehensive portfolio offers the right cost-effective
package for every requirement and task. Like optical radar, the compact systems
scan their surroundings and measure distances by using the time-of-flight
principle of measurement. The integrated rotating mirror creates a
two-dimensional scan for freely defined protection areas.

Safety light curtains

Flexible, cost-saving
installation and maintenance with the highest safety

Safety light curtains reliably and cost-effectively protect against access
into hazardous points and areas. Depending on the variant, different machine
functions are integrated or can be selected via safe control solutions. The
range from small and compact types to extremely robust and resistant variants
that withstand special ambient conditions up to the highest safety level.

Safety camera systems

Quick and easy
protection for hazardous points and hazardous areas

Safety camera systems from SICK are electro-sensitive protective devices
based on image processing technology. Sender and receiver are integrated into a
single housing. The compact camera systems do not require any additional
software and can be commissioned at the push of a button.

Automated alignment makes for high flexibility when defining the protective
field. and the high degree of freedom in the machine design optimizes
ergonomics for the operator.

Multiple light beam safety devices

Economical, efficient
multiple light beam safety devices

Multiple light beam safety devices are electro-sensitive protective devices
with two or more light beams. If one or more of the light beams is interrupted,
a deactivation signal is sent to the machine so that any dangerous state on a
machine or system can be stopped. A system consists of a sender and a receiver.
In active/passive systems, the sender and receiver are located in a housing
unit while a deflection unit on the passive side provides beam deflection.

Single-beam photoelectric safety switches

Photoelectric safety
switches for use in extreme application conditions

Single-beam photoelectric safety switches comprise either self-testing
senders and receivers or testable senders and receivers combined with an
evaluation unit. They have long sensing ranges and come in a variety of types
and sizes. They comply with Type 2 or Type 4 to EN 61496, and PL c or PL e to
EN ISO 13849. Fields of application include robots, processing machinery,
machining centers, palletizer systems, high-bay warehouses, and transfer lines.

Mirror columns and device columns

Stand-alone mounting
solution for access protection

Free choice of space for the safety: Mirror and device columns from SICK
are used in applications where it is difficult to mount optoelectronic
protective devices. Used together, mirror and device columns are the ideal
solution to protect multi-sided areas in machining centers or material transfer
applications. The optoelectronic devices can be mounted to freestanding device
columns to ensure hazardous areas are properly safeguarded. Mirror columns are
used in conjunction with device columns to deflect the beam from the sender to
the receiver. Since multiple sides of a machine can be protected with a single
pair of devices, the overall wiring is reduced. In addition to reliable device
protection, the device columns have two external mounting grooves, which enable
muting arms to be installed.

Upgrade kits for opto-electronic protective devices

The simple solution for
replacing used protective devices

upgrade kits are perfectly matched to the product they are replacing.
Protective devices from SICK offer reliable operation over many years. However,
if a device does experience a failure after several years of operation, SICK
offers upgrade kits allowing it to be replaced quickly and easily: the latest
technology, built and prepared for seamless integration into existing systems.
