The outdoorScan3 safety laser scanner ensures high productivity in outdoor areas

Thanks to the outdoorScan3, humans and machines now also reliably work together outdoors. This greatly increases their productivity.

Among others, the basis for the certification was standard ISO 13849-1 and standard IEC 62998 specially for outdoor areas.

Productivity in all areas

High speeds of automated guided vehicles (AGVs) in outdoor areas
Hazardous area protection on machines such as lifting platforms in outdoor areas
Protecting people when docking and undocking airbridges

Reliable for the safe and efficient cooperation between humans and machines

The outdoorScan3 stands for high availability, even in bad weather

The outdoorScan3 works safely and reliably, even under challenging weather conditions. The patented outdoor safeHDDM® scan technology differentiates between real safety risks and interfering environmental influences.

High performance of the outdoor safeHDDM® scan technology even with sun, precipitation and fog

The outdoorScan3 does not get dazzled by sun beams of up to 40,000 lx
Rain and snow are reliably filtered thanks to high-precision measurement data
Fog is detected reliably and causes a safe stop at a visual range below 50 m

You are well-prepared for any weather with reliable safety technology from SICK

High flexibility of the outdoorScan3 for designing your individual automation processes

The flexibility of the outdoorScan3 enables individual configuration variants, therefore allowing for optimal adjustment of settings for different tasks.

Configuration using the Safety Designer software, just as you need it

8 simultaneous protective fields and 128 fields with individual settings can be configured
Multiple sampling and resolution can be defined individually for every field
Safeguarding and navigation in just one device
