You are well prepared for any weather with the outdoorScan3

High flexibility of the outdoorScan3 for designing your individual automation processes

The flexibility of the outdoorScan3 enables individual configuration variants via the Safety Designer software, therefore allowing for optimal adjustment of settings for different tasks. One example is the automatic, weather-dependent AGV speed adjustment.
You can configure 8 simultaneous protective fields and 128 fields with individual settings
With individual definition of multiple sampling and the resolution for each field, protective fields can be switched depending on the weather
Protection and localization in just one device

Safety laser scanners for customer-specific automation processes

Intuitive operation of the outdoorScan3 for smooth operation

Both commissioning and handling during ongoing operation are as easy, self-explanatory and convenient as with the safety laser scanners from SICK for indoor areas.
Highly visible LEDs and a multi-color display facilitate operation
Intuitive handling of the Safety Designer configuration and diagnostic software
With its rugged design and the unique shape of the optics cover, the outdoorScan3 is perfectly suited for outdoor use

Unites the proven integration and operating concept of indoor safety laser scanners with high profitability
