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.
Safety Scanners Comparison
|Safety Scanners||S3000||S300||microScan3 Core I/O|
The protective field range describes the maximum range of the monitored field
|Range up to 7 m||Range up to 3 m||Range up to 5.5 m|
The scanning angle describes the maximum viewing angle of the scanner
The number of field sets indicates how the scanner can be adapted to different process phases
|Up to 32 Field Sets||Up to 16 Field Sets||2 Field Sets|
(PPR= Pulses per Rotation)
|500 PPR||500 PPR||80,000+ PPR
|Size (W x H x D)|
The smaller the device, the easier it is to integrate in a system
