SICK SafeVisionary2 safety camera sensor

SICK has launched its SafeVisionary2 safety camera sensor, a 3D time-of-flight camera with performance level c safety certification. The safety camera sensor makes safe three-dimensional environment perception for advanced safety concepts possible, thereby enabling users to enhance the productivity of their machines. The 3D measurement data delivered by the sensor enables users to solve automation tasks at the same time.

To enable mobile robots to navigate safely through halls, they must be able to sense their surroundings. As a versatile solution, eg, for collision protection and side protection, the safety camera sensor increases the availability of vehicles. The camera also delivers three-dimensional environment data so that mobile robots can autonomously find their way.

The safety camera sensor also features a compact design, with dimensions of just 70 x 80 x 77 mm. This allows users to integrate the camera into their machine design, even when installation space is tight.

The safety camera sensor is also designed to be ready for use in no time, due to its standardised connection technology and the intuitive Safety Designer configuration software. Users can also employ software functions such as protective field evaluation to quickly engineer their safety application.

Diagnostics and optimisations are also quick and easy, to enhance productivity. The safety camera sensor enables service robots to safely detect people and obstacles that are in the direction of travel, thereby avoiding accidents. Even stairs or ramps are no longer a hazard due to the detection of fall edges. Cleaning robots in shopping malls, for example, also stop safely in front of escalators. By combining two cameras, the PL d performance level required by the IEC 63227-2021 standard for fall protection can in many cases be achieved.
