Easing the burden on machine controllers, boosting productivity

Start benefitting from the advantages of Sensor Intelligence. today.

Smart_Sensor_Solution

The Industrial Internet is only made possible thanks to intelligent, communicative sensors: With its Smart Sensor Solutions, SICK places great emphasis on the use of state-of-the-art sensor technologies in connection with complete integration into the control level via IO-Link. Particular attention in this regard is placed on the decentralization of certain automation functions into the sensor, both to ease the burden on the control and increase machine productivity.

Optimizing packaging processes with IO-Link

SOMIC-Teaser

Imagine a sensor that can let you know when something is about to malfunction: The IO-Link technology offers a diverse range of options for cost-effective, bidirectional communication between sensors and automation systems. The wrap-around packer from packaging specialist SOMIC is just one example of these systems. Through intelligent sensor and control technology, including with IO-Link sensors from SICK, the machine provides additional options for greater operating safety, packaging quality and output.

New MLG-2 automation light grid: No more compromises, simply more detection

MLG-2_teaser_2

MLG-2 is the new generation of intelligent automation light grids from SICK. The product family sets a new standard in terms of resolutions, response times, evaluation options and ease of use. The MLG-2 can detect anything, from transparent or small objects to fast-moving ones, even when there is hardly anything to detect at all. The light grid, which is currently available in two variants, adapts to different automation requirements, focusing on quick commissioning and simple operation. Continue reading

See ultra-black in the dark: New W2S-2 photoelectric sensor from SICK

W2S_2_Teaser Video abspielen

Even things “not graspable” are now detected reliably: Infrablack object with only 1 % diffuse light reflection can be detected dependably at a range of up to 50 mm. Innovative technologies constitute the best copy protection – and the new subminiature W2S-2 photoelectric sensor boasts plenty of those.  The new LED technology PinPoint 2.0 from SICK is 2.5 times more light-intensive than the previous PinPoint LEDs, ensuring even better switching precision and repeat accuracy.
