Innovation, formal quality, functionality and ecological compatibility are just some of the criteria on which the decision is based. The international Red Dot jury bestows the quality seal only on products which set themselves apart with their good design from comparable objects on the market.

microScan3: providing a new platform for safety

With microScan3, SICK is embarking on a new era for safety. This new generation of safety laser scanners is based on the patented safe measurement principle safeHDDM™. The new technology creates improved reliability when dust and ambient light is present in the environment. The status indicators, the LEDs and the display are easily visible from many angles. Important diagnostic messages can be selected directly via keys while the machine is running and are shown in plain text on the display. What this has resulted in is outstanding reliability under challenging conditions and an extensive scanning range – all in a single highly compact and rugged housing.
