The SICK AppEngine software product integrates devices such as industrial PCs or controls into the SICK AppSpace eco-system and makes them programmable. SICK AppEngine therefore extends the portfolio of programmable devices on which SICK AppSpace can be used. Using the eco-system, sensor applications are implemented efficiently based on individual SensorApps and run on the SICK AppEngine, regardless of the area of application and sensor technology. The SICK AppEngine contains a collection of powerful software libraries for this purpose and provides application developers with countless functions using a uniform API structure. Sensor and data applications can be quickly and cost-effective solved using these functions.
