S3000 Anti Collision with a sensing range up to 15 Meter at Jungheinrich

Now made possible: More vehicles in narrow aisles

Narrow isle

In mobile applications, the S3000 Anti Collision safety laser scanner offers by far the largest sensing range for a field where safety is key: 15 meters. Working closely with Jungheinrich, SICK has developed a solution to provide efficient protection for narrow aisle trucks. Thanks to this new solution, two or more industrial trucks can now be used in one narrow aisle for the first time ever. It forms the ideal basis for improving throughput and flexibility while still ensuring maximum safety. Continue reading

Sim-4-Safety: world’s first safety design allows monitoring of up to four protective fields simultaneously

Sim--Safety

Equipping adjacent machines with only one safety component is extremely economical. In the context of the Scanner Plus! campaign, SICK has adopted this approach as a mission, developing the Sim-4-Safety solution based on the S3000 laser scanner and the Flexi Soft safety controller. The result constitutes the world’s first safety design that allows monitoring of up to four protective fields simultaneously. Continue reading
