Proximity sensors from SICK

Category: Tag:


Proximity sensors provide
non-contact detection of a wide variety of objects and media. SICK sensors
are perfectly suited to industrial applications and requirements. SICK inductive,
capacitive and magnetic proximity sensors offer a long service life, extreme
ruggedness and the utmost precision. SICK intelligently and reliably solves
industry-specific and individual automation tasks.

Inductive proximity sensors

Reliable, powerful,
rugged. Inductive proximity sensors from SICK

Millions of inductive proximity sensors are currently in use in virtually
all industries. They detect metal objects without contact, and are
characterized by a long service life and extreme ruggedness. With the latest
ASIC technology, SICK’s sensors offer the ultimate in precision and
reliability. SICK can provide the right solution to meet your requirements
every time from cylindrical or rectangular standard sensors with single,
double or triple operating distance, to special sensors for explosive zones and
harsh environments. Our sensors are the intelligent, reliable route to
implementing industry-specific and customized solutions to any task involving

Capacitive proximity sensors

Detection of metallic
and non-metallic objects

Sometimes you just need to know what is hidden behind a surface. For
example behind a wall or cover, or what is inside in a storage container or
shipping container. Capacitive proximity sensors are ideal for level and feed
monitoring. From solid material, such as paper or wood, to granules or liquids,
they reliably detect the status of the product during the production process
and final inspection. Is there something behind that cover? Is the filled
package really full? How much paint is still left in the tank? For capacitive
proximity sensors, these are easy questions to answer. Capacitive proximity
sensors from SICK are never far from the action. Sensing ranges between 1 and
25 mm allow them to be used in nearly all installation situations, making them
extremely adaptable for a wide range of applications. These sensors are also
remarkably resistant to faults. Impurities, contamination, dust, and airborne
spray particles have little effect on them, nor does electromagnetic
interference. No wonder they are installed in a wide range of industries, such
as food, automotive, or in storage and conveyor systems.

Magnetic proximity sensors

Magnetic proximity
sensors with maximum operating distances and a minimal design

SICK offers an extensive portfolio of magnetic proximity sensors in metric
(MM) and rectangular (MQ) configurations. Magnetic proximity sensors provide
long sensing ranges that can reliably detect magnetic objects, with entirely
new application options opened up due to the smaller magnets. MM sensors in
NAMUR design for the use in explosion-hazardous areas complete this
comprehensive product family. MQ sensors offer all the advantages of a magnetic
proximity sensor in a compact plastic housing. Magnetic proximity sensors are
designed specifically for use in harsh environments and are unaffected by dust,
heat, or vibrations. Typical fields of application are also those where other
sensors reach the limits of their technology.
