Product and System Support
On-Site Technical Support
When you simply want a SICK representative on-site for help, you can rely on SICK’s experienced network of field service and application professionals. These individuals are strategically located throughout the US and can respond quickly to resolve product and system related issues.
24/7 Helpline Support
To accommodate customers who have extended hours of operation, SICK offers a program that grants phone access to Technical Support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Sold on an annual per-site basis, the 24/7 Helpline Support Program connects customers to a Technical Support team equipped to troubleshoot and diagnose product and system problems.
Remote service capabilities improve the ability to troubleshoot and reduce costly downtime. SICK’s Remote Service Program was specifically designed for customers as a secure and safe way for SICK’s authorised Field Service personnel to connect to a product and assist with problem diagnosis. Sold as a one-year subscription on a per-site basis, Remote Service requires hardware and/or software to be initially installed. Ideally, travel costs are eliminated as further technical help is received remotely instead of on-site.
SICK offers the option of Extended Warranties to its customers who want to have additional service protection for their products and systems beyond the original factory warranty period. The program is designed to provide an affordable and planned alternative to unpredictable repair expenses.
