Whether mobile or stationary, for area protection or access protection – SICK’s comprehensive Safety Scanner portfolio offers a cost-effective package for every requirement and task. 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 monitoring freely defined, software configurable protection areas.
