Outdoor is our fourth dimension

With the MRS1000 multi-layer scanner, SICK has developed a 3D LiDAR sensor which accurately and reliably detects and measures objects in good time and in multiple dimensions. By collecting large volumes of data on multiple scan layers and from different angles, it can detect and respond to objects on the floor as well as objects that are obstructing the path. The MRS1000 is characterized by a high degree of ruggedness even when subject to adverse environmental influences such as rain, dust, and fog. The new HDDM+ process, with multi-echo evaluation, ensures the reliable detection of objects and accurate measurement results. Versatile fields of application, both indoor and outdoor, make this an efficient all-rounder among 3D LiDAR sensors.

At a glance
  • Four spread layers and a 275° aperture angle
  • High weather resistance and reliability through HDDM+ with multi-echo technology
  • Field evaluation and measured data in one sensor
  • Easy configuration, with the ability to adapt to a changing environment
  • Convenient and customer-friendly diagnostics via web server



The MRS1000 3D LiDAR sensor is the ideal solution for indoor and outdoor applications, even under adverse ambient conditions. This outstanding performance can be improved even more with additional digital filters for preparation and optimization of measured distance values. With the filter, the user can perfectly and efficiently adjust the MRS1000 to the specific requirements of the respective application. SICK offers various filters for this purpose. This makes it possible to prevent virtually all faults.
See how versatile and rugged the MRS1000 is in application, and experience the increased flexibility regarding its application possibilities.
The MRS1000 is not bothered by environmental influences such as rain, fog, dust and ambient light.
The innovative HDDM+ technology enables measurement at long distances and is characterized by low noise in the measured value data as well as multi-echo capability.

High availability even under unfavorable ambient conditions and very good reliability when detecting objects

The MRS1000 stands out due to its high performance. It allows for scanning over four spread-out layers at a horizontal aperture angle of 275°, and can even measure at different angles nearly simultaneously. The MRS1000 therefore has a much more detailed level of visibility than a 2D LiDAR sensor. The MRS1000 can not only detect in two dimensions, but can also detect three-dimensionally throughout the additional layers, thereby identifying objects lying on the ground as well as objects which protrude into the vehicle path from above.
The MRS1000 features an innovative ground reference evaluation (GRE) system and can therefore continuously scan the floor and react to obstacles on the ground as well as the lack of an underground.
For instance, the MRS1000 simplifies quick and collision-free entry into a truck by detecting and monitoring the driving path.
The MRS1000 allows for correct positioning of the transport fork of an automated guided vehicle during the approach and reception of the pallet without stopping the AGV.

Powerful technology in a cost-efficient device

Strong performance, versatile in use

The large selection of accessory components enables variable adjustment of the MRS1000 to the respective application requirements. This increases flexibility when it comes to application possibilities in your industry, while at the same time reducing storage costs and expenditures for different variants as well as integration. The easy and convenient sensor diagnostics via web server as well as the user-friendly operation round out the exceptional profile of the MRS1000.
Always well protected From simple brackets to mountings for fine adjustment and weather hoods for protection against weather conditions - the right solution for any application.
Always well connected Large selection of cables and power supply units up to connection modules.
No worries about space Rotatable connections also enable flexible mounting, both indoors and outdoors.

High flexibility during installation, convenient parameterization and simple diagnostics via web server

SICK LifeTime Services

SICK’s services increase machine and plant productivity, enhance the safety of people all over the world, provide a solid foundation for a sustainable business operation, and protect investment goods. In addition to its usual consulting services, SICK provides direct on-site support during the conceptual design and commissioning phases as well as during operation.

The range of services not only covers aspects like maintenance and inspection, but also includes performance checks as well as upgrades and retrofits. Modular or customized service contracts extend the service life of plants and therefore increase their availability. If faults occur or limit values are exceeded, these are detected at all times by the corresponding sensors and systems.

Consulting and design Application-specific advice on the product, its integration and the application itself.
Commissioning and maintenance Application-optimized and sustainable ─ thanks to professional commissioning and maintenance by a trained SICK service technician.
Service contracts Extended warranty, SICK Remote Service, 24-hour helpdesk, maintenance, availability guarantees and other modular components can be individually combined on request.
