Sick Stegmann has introduced BKS Wire Draw Encoders, a compact wire draw measurement system that includes an integrated absolute encoder to minimize the size of the unit. Designed to provide high resolution (to 0.05mm) position or distance information for linear measurement paths to 5 m at speeds to 3.5 m/sec, even under difficult mounting positions.
offers its line of CVS color vision sensors, which include the
industry's first true optical character recognition sensor (OCR) CVS
family includes four color vision sensor solutions: the CVS1 Easy,
CVS2, CVS3, and the CVS4.
Sick has launched two new vision sensors for packaging applications. The Area Gloss Detector (AGD) detects the gloss from a product, making it useful for bottle rotation or checking for weld seams or label presence; the AGD uses reflections created by its own integrated light source in order to detect orientation.
Sick, Inc. offers its new DCI vision sensor that checks the number of pixels on a package’s date or lot code to verify clear printing. This process ensures that only products with the proper date or lot codes reach consumers.
Sick has added more than 20 new safety interlocks to its product line to include safety position switches, safety locking devices, noncontact safety sensors, safety operating and emergency stop switches, and safety switches with separate actuators.
The Omni-2110 from Sick is an individually configurable, omni-directional scanning system from Sick (Minneapolis, MN) suitable for the most demanding sortation, item-tracking, and package-handling environments.
New versions of magnetic proximity sensors from the MM12 and MM18 series are now available from Sick (Minneapolis, MN). These new sensors conform to NAMUR, and may be used in Explosion Protection Zone 1.
C4000 is a safety light curtain with a self-contained, noncontact control that combines high resolution with a small size. From Sick (Minneapolis, MN), it features a small-profile cross section with protective heights ranging from 300 mm to 1꼀 mm (1 to 6).
The CLV 450 bar-code scanner from Sick (Bloomington, MN) is compact with a long reading range of 8” to 63”. Has dynamic focus control and is equipped with SMART (Sick’s Modular Advanced Recognition Technology), which enables the scanner to read bar codes that cannot be read by other scanners, the company says.
Sick’s (Bloomington, MN) OD optical displacement sensor finds even small objects and measures them to detect depressions, unevenness or rippling. The OD comes with either an LED light source with a scanning range of 25 mm or a laser light source with a range of 50 mm.
Sick’s (Bloomington, MN) CLP 100 bar-code scanner is offered in front or right-angle enclosures to perform 500 scans/sec from as far as 2.2” away. The larger model of this compact scanner is 2.17”x0.79”x2.17”.
The CLV 490 bar-code scanner from Sick (Bloomington, MN) reads codes at distances from 20” to 82.7”. Sick’s Modular Advanced Recognition Technology (SMART) allows it to recognize bar codes on labels that are tilted, damaged or partly hidden from view.
Sick’s (Bloomington, MN) W.1000 photoelectric sensor offers teach-in capability so an operator can set up the sensor for use by touching 1 button. A molded lens eliminates the need for a separate polarizing filter.
The KT10 from SICK Optic-Electronic (Bloomington, MN) is a 10-color contrast sensor that is said to read any contrast in color 25ꯠ times/sec. The operator pushes a button to "teach" the sensor, which then "looks" at the contrast it is required to sense and selects the proper light source for best results.
An interactive CD-ROM from SICK Optic-Electronic (Bloomington, MN) displays the new CLV 410 bar-code scanner. Available in Mac and Windows formats, the CD-ROM enables users to explore all parameters of the scanner, which is designed for applications such as pharmaceutical/product verification and test-tube tracking.
SICK Optic-Electronic (Eden Prairie, MN) offers inductive proximity sensors designed to detect metallic objects. Their fully encapsulated design includes no moving parts or contacts, providing low maintenance and protection against vibration, shock, dust, dirt and humidity.
The LUT 3-8 luminescence sensor from SICK Optic-Electronic (Eden Prairie, MN) combines high switching frequency and a fast response time with the convenience of a semiconductor UV light source and a more compact design.
The WLL 160T is a fiber-optic sensor from SICK Optic-Electronic (Eden Prairie, MN) that offers small size and an intelligent push-button teach-in process for use in a variety of applications and industries.
SICK Optic-Electronic's (Eden Prairie, MN) W.27-2 series of photoelectric sensors offer a long sensing range and protection against crosstalk interference, making them suitable for many industrial applications.
SICK Optic-Electronic's (Eden Prairie, MN) smallest bar code scanner is the new CLV 220. Measuring only 4.9" x 2.7" x 1.4", it offers features usually found only in large scanners, including a 1겨-Hz scan rate, adjustable focus control and a broad reading range.
The WT4 is SICK Optic Electronic's (Eden Prairie, MN) smallest photoelectronic proximity sensor. It measures about 1 sq" and weighs 20 g. The WT4 has a variable scanning distance of 20 to 80 mm (0.788" to 3.152") to allow sensing of any color object against any reflective background.
The KT 5 Contrast Scanner is a high-speed solid state registration control scanner from Sick Optic-Electronic (Eden Prairie, WI) that provides good sensitivity at ranges up to 40 mm (1.57") even at 10ꯠ operations/ sec.
