Business Name


SICK has a wide range of optic and ultrasonic
solutions that measure from sub-microns to kilometres. 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.

Displacement measurement sensors

Improved product
quality with highly accurate measurement down to nanometer resolution

Displacement measurement sensors are laser sensors which measure
precisely with a measuring range of up to 1,000 mm. Due to their measurement
accuracy, they are particularly suitable for use in controlling, sorting, and
inspection tasks in quality control workflows and processes that have an impact
on costs. Commonly measured characteristics include dimension, position, and
shape. Using SICK displacement measurement sensors can improve the quality of
your end product through 100% quality inspection, while at the same time
reducing material and downtime costs.

Mid-range distance sensors

The perfect
combination of range, reliability, precision and price

SICK mid-range distance sensors provide sensing ranges from 50 mm up
to 50,000 mm, enabling them to be used in
a wide range of applications. Due to their highly reliable measurements on
objects of different colours and textures, process reliability can be improved. Plus, all sensors have
easy-to-understand setup and programming, ensuring they can be commissioned quickly. The perfect
combination of range, reliability, precision and price.

Long range distance sensors

SICK long range
distance sensors designed to solve applications

Long range distance sensors from SICK combine highly precise measurement
results with great reliability and a wide measuring range. Long range distance
sensors use time-of-flight measurement technology for linear positioning and
can be used to measure a distance or to indicate a switching threshold. Due to
their large measuring range, the sensors are suitable for a variety of
industries and applications.

Linear measurement sensors

New directions in
linear measurement technology

Linear measurement sensors from SICK use highly innovative technologies
for the non-contact measurement of positions, speeds, and lengths. The OLM
sensors’ camera-based system determines the current position based on a mounted
bar code tape. This acts as a reference
point against which the OLM sensor can position itself accurately, depending on
variants, over a length of up to 10 km and as little as 0.15 mm, regardless of
whether the product travel path is in a straight line or curved.

The sensors in the OLV product family determine lengths and speeds using
the laser Doppler effect. This technology enables extremely precise
measurements to be made of almost any material at speeds of up to 80 m/s and
material temperatures of up to 1,100 C.

Ultrasonic sensors

Versatile, precise
measuring with SICK ultrasonic sensors

The sound is a natural
phenomenon that provides us with information about our environment without
physical contact, and over a range of distances. SICK ultrasonic sensors utilise the properties of sound. Objects and
distances are determined precisely and with excellent background suppression
and immunity to many types of foreign objects in the environment. The output
used switching, analogue, or both is
determined by your application


Optical data transmission

Optical data
transmission wireless communication made easy

The ISD infrared data transmission system enables wireless
communication. Typical applications include on stacker cranes in storage and
conveyor systems to enable wireless communication from the vehicle to the
control unit. The system consists of an optically aligned pair comprising
sender and receiver which can communicate bi-directionally over long distances.
This is a wear-free, cost-effective, and
highly reliable alternative to trailing cables.

Position finders

Reliable and accurate fine positioning

DMP position finders are opto-electronic sensors that are used for fine
positioning that is accurate to the millimeter. This sensor product family is
primarily used in storage and conveying, where reliability, speed, and
precision are the order of the day. Fine positioning is performed on the x and
y axes with working ranges spanning 200 mm up to 2,000 mm depending on the type
of device.
