Clicked quickly: G6 photoelectric sensor with innovative connectivity

Compact design, faultless sensor performance, and clever connectivity – with these properties, the G6 miniature photoelectric sensor is the convincing choice for intralogistic modules and systems. In conjunction with Interroll, one of the world’s leading specialists in intralogistics, SICK has developed a quick-clip system, which allows the G6 to be mounted in seconds without any tools.



Der Global Sensor mit Schnellklicksystem



Global Sensor G6

All G6 sensors work with high-performance PinPoint technology. The light sender produces an extremely bright and concentrated beam of light so that the sensors can be aligned precisely. The integrated ASIC chip makes object detection particularly reliable because it provides a high level of resistance to glitches, ambient light, and cross-talk. Disruptive optical or electromagnetic influences in the operational environment do not affect the performance of the sensors. The G6 Global Sensor is, therefore, ideally suited to different tasks in intralogistics.



Innovative quick-clip system

The quick-clip system has been developed together with Swiss company Interroll, the global market leader in the material flow market. With this system, the G6 can be installed in seconds without the need for tools and is immediately ready to detect millions of packages and pallets. This saves valuable time during assembly. Interoll estimates that more than two man-days of installation work can be saved when integrating the sensor equipment into complex logistics systems with approximately 1,000 G6 sensors.


In use all over the world

Zhejiang Damon, a system integrator from China, uses up to 8,000 G6 Global Sensors in one project. The tasks of the sensor range from object detection and identification of leading edges to preventing impact caused by the storage and retrieval system.

The innovative optics and electronics, teamed with easy integration and internationally distributed operating technologies, appeal greatly to customers such as Interoll and Zhejiang Damon.
