The microScan3 safety laser scanner

The microScan3 safety laser scanner provides reliable protection for hazardous areas, access points, and hazardous points. The new generation of safety laser scanners is based on the patented safe measurement principle safeHDDM®. This new technology increases the reliability of the device when dust and ambient light is present in the environment. The status indicators, LEDs and the display are highly visible from many perspectives. Important diagnostics messages can be selected directly using pushbuttons during operation, and appear as cleartext on the display. Using the Safety Designer software, the microScan3 can be intuitively configured and is convenient to commission. Thanks to standardized interfaces, its smart connectivity saves costs during cabling.

Outstanding reliability under challenging conditions, an extensive scanning range, easy operation and all in a highly compact and rugged housing – this is the microScan3 from SICK.
