SICK SENSORS ENSURE A GOOD WORK CLIMATE

Company employees park comfortably

Einfahrt

A company that builds a parking lot for its employees has different requirements for it than a public parking lot. The basic requirement in such cases is it can be used safely and comfortably by authorized persons. When you have more than 1100 parking spaces, short entry and exit times are a major factor. Siemens and Magnetic Autocontrol use SICK sensors to meet these requirements. Continue reading

FENCE AND FACADE MONITORING (PERIMETER SECURITY)

Storing goods securely before distribution

Logistikzentrum_klein

As a secure shipper in accordance with the German Aviation Security Act, a company that sends air freight to the USA must protect the goods from being accessed by unauthorized parties. As a non-certified shipper, the goods must be X-rayed, which means extra costs and time expenditure. An intrusion or manipulation can cause a huge amount of damage for the company. The company’s deliverability would be limited, which would be detrimental to its relationships with its customers. In a Southern Baden distribution center, Siemens is using a fence and facade security system, which works using SICK sensor technology, for exactly this purpose. Continue reading
