- Industrial Sensors
SICK Industrial Sensors reliably sort, count, inspect, measure, recognize and verify the position, size and overall shape of objects. This vast array of industrial sensors encompasses photoelectric, inductive, capacitive and magnetic proximity sensors.
- High Performance Sensors
SICK provides sensing solutions for the most difficult applications. Their wide range of specialty sensors includes:
- Contrast Sensors
- Color Sensors
- Luminescence Sensors
- Distance Measurement Sensors
- Registration Sensors
- Safety Opto-Electronic Devices
Since their inception, SICK has led the world in opto-electronic Safety Solutions for hazardous machines and work areas. SICK continues to develop innovative point-of-operation devices, optical perimeter and area guards. Advanced functions of their safety control devices include fixed, floating, and multiple point floating blanking, Presence Sensing Device Initiation (PSDI) and multiple configurable muting controls.
- Safety Switches
SICK products easily withstand harsh conditions, such as impact and vibrations. Non-contact safety switches from SICK can be used for the safe monitoring of movable guards as well as for position monitoring. You have a choice among three operating principles (magnetic, transponder and inductive), and different designs allow you to select the solution that best fits the application requirements.
- Vision Sensors
SICK's vision sensors are easy to use, rugged and reliable. They are designed to be a cost-effective solution for applications that would otherwise require more complicated and expensive vision systems. From part inspection... to verifying presence... to color sorting and optical character recognition, SICK has a solution. SICK smart cameras are high-speed cameras for advanced applications
- Identification Solutions
SICK bar code scanners speed up logistics automation. Excellent reading performance ensures the process flow even when the bar codes are damaged or printed poorly. Their high scanning frequency enables high process speed. Whether 1D or 2D, or direct marked codes (e.g., laser, dot peening, ink jet) on metallic, plastic or on paper, they provide an ideal solution for nearly every application.
