Photoelectric sensors

Get a better perspective - with the EventCam from SICK

Your Benefits

  • Event tracking possible
  • No data flood – the only data that needs to be analyzed is data taken from the relevant time period, before and after an event
  • Remote analysis and quick setup – data access and individual configuration of the camera via SOPAS Air
  • Flexible data backup – data transmission via FTP to a server or directly onto the camera’s internal memory
  • Reliable data transmission – industry standard, wired network connection (10/100 Mbit) to a selected IP address on the company network


Get a better perspective - with the EventCam from SICK

Why has there been a fault in the production process? Why has my scanner triggered? Want to find out the answers to these questions, without having to physically monitor the production process yourself? If so, look no further than the SICK EventCam, which uses real video footage and images to help you identify the cause. The SICK EventCam supplies an image or video of a defined time period, occurring immediately before or after a trigger signal. Information on the cause of protective field violations or why material was rejected ensure greater process transparency and increase system throughput. The camera integrates seamlessly into SICK’s industrial sensor technology, and data can be transmitted directly via FTP to a server and stored inside the camera itself.

Targeted process optimization in detection tasks and advanced diagnostics for protective devices

The SICK EventCam is particularly helpful when identifying the optimum configuration for new production facilities or improving the quality of existing processes and reducing downtime. If the machine stops repeatedly and unexpectedly, the SICK EventCam can provide a rapid, purposeful diagnosis of the situation. The recorded image or video sequences allow the person responsible for the system to identify the disturbance visually and take appropriate corrective measures.
A Smart Sensor detects an incorrect pattern, thereby triggering the EventCam, which takes pictures of the pattern
A protective field violation triggers two EventCams which record videos
The EventCam delivers image material before and after the trigger time
