From factory automation to logistics automation and process automation, SICK is one of the leading sensor manufacturers. As a technology and market leader, SICK provides sensors and application solutions that create the perfect basis for controlling processes securely and efficiently, protecting individuals from accidents, and preventing damage to the environment.
SICK's vast range of photoelectric sensors offer precise optics and advanced technology using the latest SIRIC®and LED technologies. These sensors offer the highest level of operational reliability regardless of any interference factors.
SICK offers a wide range of contrast, markless, color, luminescence, fork and array sensors to solve this wide spectrum of demanding tasks. Typical applications are the detection of visible and non-visible marks, labels and colors at high speeds as well as the detection of small parts and precise positioning.
SICK’s 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.
SICK has a wide range of optic and ultrasonic solutions that measure from sub-microns to kilometers. They solve measuring, detecting and positioning applications using triangulation and time-of-flight modes.
SICK’s automation light grids can be used in a number of inspection and counting tasks, such as detecting and counting irregularly shaped objects, people and vehicles, and checking for presence and pallet overhang detection.
High-resolution optical encoders and extremely rugged magnetic encoders complement one another perfectly and permit exact measurements in all kinds of applications. Rotary encoders are available as incremental and absolute encoders. Wire draw encoders and linear encoders with a measuring element are available in linear measuring technology.
SICK offers the three most common industrial identification technologies: laser-based scanners for 1D codes, image-based 1D and 2D code readers, and RFID readers. Integrated interfaces enable the readers to communicate inside industrial networks and innovative functionality makes commissioning and operation easy.
SICK's comprehensive portfolio of opto-electronic protective devices is ideal for hazardous point protection, access protection, and hazardous area protection. The SICK’s proprietary interface, EFI, offers additional process optimization.
SICK’s safety switches are used for protecting movable physical guards, determining the position of dangerous movements, and the safe stop function. The portfolio is divided into electro-mechanical and non-contact safety switches, safety locking devices, and safety command devices.
sens:Control – safe control solutions by SICK meet these requirements. The product portfolio includes safe sensor cascades, safety controllers, motion control safety controllers, and safety relays.
