SICK is once again setting the standard in the field of distance sensors with the new generation of Dx50-2 sensors, which provide the perfect combination of measurement performance and size. Based on the patented and improved HDDM™ time-of-flight technology, the new product family supports precise and reliable measuring, with ranges of up to 10 m on black targets and up to 30 m on white targets. The Dx50-2 sensors feature an intuitive display, saving time during installation and commissioning. The high output rate of the sensors delivers up to 3,000 distance values per second for maximum throughput and process quality. The Dx50-2 sensors have a rugged housing and provide reliable operation despite extreme temperatures and harsh ambient conditions. Since the settings for speed, sensing range, and repeatability can be adjusted to meet current requirements, the Dx50-2 sensors can be customized to suit each and every possible application.

Dx50-2 – infinite possibilities – finally available
With the measurement technology, which has been optimized in contrast to the Dx50, combined with the most advanced micro-controller technology, SICK is offering a mid range distance sensor which adapts to the given market requirements. The Dx50-2 solves tasks which were previously considered unsolvable.
The Dx50-2 was developed to increase productivity and is always the right choice when you need a bit higher measurement performance.
As co-founder of IO-Link, SICK offers one of the broadest IO-Link portfolios on the market. Smart Sensors with IO-Link generate and receive data and information which goes beyond conventional switching signals or measured process parameters. This allows them to create substantial increases in efficiency, more flexibility, and better planning security for predictive maintenance of machines and systems. Benefit from SICK’s extensive experience with a wide range of sensing technologies, and now also in combination with the SIG100 and SIG200 Sensor Integration Gateways.

The IO link allows you to use a simple output signal switching device as a communication interface. This enables quick batch changes and simple commissioning, maintenance and diagnostics.
The Dx50-2 distance sensors can be used for the most challenging stationary and mobile applications:
Positioning of track-bound vehicles, gripper arms and crane systems
Collision avoidance in ports and intralogistics
Quality control and process monitoring in the automotive industry
Noticeably more performance for complex tasks in the mid range distance sensor segment.
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.
