Outdoor safety: moving beyond limits

Outdoor safety: moving beyond limits
Outdoor safety: moving beyond limits

Achieving a high level of productivity is a primary concern of our customers not only for indoor but also outdoor applications. The fields of application for outdoor automation are numerous and extend from monitoring hazardous areas outside right through to integrated logistics processes inside and outside buildings.

When sensors are used outdoors, the robustness of the hardware and intelligence of the software are decisive factors. With our safety solutions, we support you reliably and efficiently even in rain, snow, direct sunlight or fog – and we are certified to do so.

Even in the harshest environments, like open pit mining or the agricultural sector, we solve your challenge. This offers you a completely new potential for increasing productivity and opening up new applications.

Kollisionsvermeidung durch 3D-Assistenzsystem Visionary-B

Visionary-B 3D assistance system prevents accidents when driving backwards

Pfeifer & Langen chose the Visionary-B intelligent driver assistance system not only on account of the reliability of the safety solution during the huge logistic effort and also the more stringent weather-resistance requirements, but it was SICK's willingness to collaborate with them on-site to develop tangible solutions that really impressed one of the leading sugar manufacturers in Europe.
