    The SIM4000 Sensor Integration Machine – part of the SICK AppSpace eco-system – is opening up new possibilities for application solutions. Data from SICK sensors and cameras can be merged into a point cloud, evaluated, archived, and transmitted. 8-gigabit Ethernet interfaces are available for 2D or 3D cameras, and in some cases feature a voltage supply over Ethernet (PoE). Sensors can be integrated via IO-Link for distance and height measuring purposes. Thanks to the high-performance multi-core processor featuring hardware support, the SIM4000 enables image preprocessing and handling of input and output signals in real time. The integrated HALCON library also makes it possible to find solutions for sophisticated image processing tasks.
