Innovative flow measurement with DOSIC

Multifunctional fluid sensors for greater flexibility


The new fluid sensors from SICK, such as the DOSIC® flow sensor, offer calibration-free measurements no matter which medium they are used in, ensuring a high level of flexibility. Plants do not have to be converted or operated in parallel when the fluid or medium is being changed. The IO-Link digital communication protocol also allows the process data to be integrated into an automation network.   Continue reading

FLOWSIC150 Carflow



The demand for cleaner air emitted from cars is increasingly determining the exact test technology required and the associated growing requirements on measurement technology. The ultrasonic technology from SICK has proven itself in a wide range of requirements on exhaust gas flow measurement in vehicle test stands. Practical tests prove: FLOWSIC150 Carflow is highly precise in the measurement of very short response times.     Continue reading

Accident and collision awareness with the APS driver assistance system


Multimillion-dollar damage that occurs during aircraft ground handling leads to high insurance payouts every year. As a result, ground handling services are encumbered with higher insurance premiums. In order to avoid damage, Lufthansa LEOS GmbH relies on SICK’s experience in laser scanners when tugging aircrafts and is putting the APS driver assistance system from SICK to the test for its aircraft tractor fleet.   Continue reading

3D LiDAR sensor detects the penguin even in its black tails


The darker the object, the harder it is to detect as the distance increases. But penguins in the Antarctic can now keep their black tailcoats on when a drone hovers overhead and the integrated laser scanner registers them. For researchers and scientists who map and count penguin colonies in order to collect urgently required information about the effects of global climate change, the combination of a laser scanner and flying robotics is a new technology that certainly receives a warm welcome.
