SICK microScan3 safety laser scanners

Tuesday, 09 August, 2016 | Supplied by: SICK Pty Ltd


The SICK microScan3 is the latest generation of safety laser scanners. Using safeHDDM scanning technology, the range satisfies stringent international safety standards and is designed to provide protection for hazardous areas, access points and hazardous points.

safeHDDM combines a compact design and large scanning range in one device. It can scan 275° and the protective field has a scanning range of 5.5 m. Even a dark object with just 1.8% remission, eg, black clothing, can be detected. With safeHDDM, microScan3 is claimed to be more reliable than standard measurement methods in ambient light, dirt and dust.

The scanner has a wide range of applications: it protects hazardous areas at loading and unloading stations, multisided access points to machines and material gates, machines in harsh environments and hazardous points with an object resolution of up to 30 mm. It also ensures presence detection to prevent machines from being restarted inadvertently.

The safety laser scanner is adaptable and attuned to different ambient conditions. Protecting hazardous areas therefore doesn’t require any changes to work processes. The sensor is easy to commission, with no need for special preparatory work when installing it in the system. Due to the use of smart connection technology and standardised M12 plug connectors, the cabling is simple and saves on connection costs.
