SICK AppSpace Software Tools
SICK AppEngine

Your Benefits

  • SICK AppEngine extends the portfolio of programmable devices and offers new application possibilities for SICK AppSpace
  • Quick and easy programming of SensorApps based on countless APIs which are ready to use right away
  • Low-cost development of sensor applications thanks to comprehensive SICK AppSpace toolchains (e.g. SICK AppStudio, SICK AppManager)
  • Customized visualization of sensor data on flexible web-based user interfaces
  • Low development effort due to reusable SensorApps and their world-wide availability via SICK AppPool


The SICK AppEngine software product integrates devices such as industrial PCs or controls into the SICK AppSpace eco-system and makes them programmable. SICK AppEngine therefore extends the portfolio of programmable devices on which SICK AppSpace can be used. Using the eco-system, sensor applications are implemented efficiently based on individual SensorApps and run on the SICK AppEngine, regardless of the area of application and sensor technology. The SICK AppEngine contains a collection of powerful software libraries for this purpose and provides application developers with countless functions using a uniform API structure. Sensor and data applications can be quickly and cost-effective solved using these functions.

At a glance
  • Countless functions with over 3,000 APIs for sensor data processing, sensor communication and integration
  • Countless security features
  • REST support for all APIs
  • Web-based user interface on integrated web server
  • Seamless integration into the SICK AppSpace eco-system
  • Availability for other devices on request


Countless functions for safe and efficient sensor applications

SICK AppEngine is a software that helps to meet the challenges of cybersecurity with numerous security functions. As an application developer, secure your SensorApps with read and copy protection. Encrypted communication protects the connectivity of your devices and systems, and regular updates of the SICK AppEngine keep your device up to date at all times. We follow the industry standard IEC 62443 for this purpose.
HTTPS-encrypted communication via MQTT or OPC UA protect the connectivity of your devices.
Our security measures are based on industry standard IEC 62443 and the BSI (German Federal Office for Information Security).

Regular security updates from SICK AppEngine keep your device up-to-date and secure at all times.
