The new generation of safety laser scanners for stationary applications
With microScan3 Core, SICK is starting a new safety laser scanner product family for the protection of stationary applications such as hazardous areas, entrances, and hazardous points. The innovative safeHDDM® scanning technology increases the reliability of the microScan3. It is outstanding in dust and ambient light. It increases the productivity and availability of machines. The housing is rugged. Smart connectivity facilitates safe integration into networks and cuts cabling costs. Using Safety Designer software, the microScan3 can be intuitively configured and commissioned. The operational status can be called up and read clearly on the multicolored display or via the network. What can first impress, and repeatedly generate enthusiasm? The microScan3 from SICK.
At a glance
Innovative safeHDDM® scanning technology
Protective field range: 5.5 m, scanning angle: 275°
Up to 8 freely configurable fields
Up to 4 simultaneous protective fields
System plug with configuration memory and M12 plug connectors
Safe machine integration via I/Os or via network with EtherNet/IP™ CIP Safety™ or PROFINET PROFIsafe
The innovative safeHDDM® scanning technology sets new standards for safety laser scanners. By combining a compact design and a wide scanning range, it ensures that the microScan3 retains its field of view even in challenging ambient conditions.
safeHDDM® is based on SICK's proven HDDM process (HDDM = high definition distance measurement). The safeHDDM® scanning technology sets a new benchmark in the analysis of time-of-flight measurement. The process patented by SICK delivers unrivaled measurement results for safety laser scanners by filtering and analyzing numerous single pulses. In this way, safeHDDM® enables a very high level of resistance to ambient light and dust. And the most important part: safeHDDM® ensures safety throughout. Even an object with a remission of just 1.8%, for example black clothing, can be recognized safely by the laser scanner.
How it works
The microScan3 is significantly more reliable than standard measurement processes thanks to the safeHDDM® scanning technology, thus increasing your productivity.
20 years of experience with safety laser scanners in harsh industrial day-to-day work has been incorporated into the development of the microScan3. It has a high load capability and is characterized by its durability.
Excellent durability and productivity
The microScan3 has been developed with demanding and harsh industrial applications in mind down to the last detail. It is the perfect combination of safety and productivity.
The safe network integration of the microScan3 with CIP Safety™ over EtherNet/IP™ is quick and easy. This enables safe communication in addition to centralized configuration and diagnostics. The microScan3 uses standardized M12 plug connectors and the device is easy to replace, saving time and helping to keep costs low.
Low cabling costs and fast device replacement with plug and play
The microScan3 facilitates machine integration and device replacement through standardized interfaces and integrated configuration memory, thereby saving you time and money.
Using Safety Designer software, the microScan3 can be intuitively configured and is convenient to commission. The multi-colored display clearly indicates the operational status of the laser scanner. Pushbuttons can be used to access details and additional information in cleartext.
Straightforward commissioning and intuitive operation
The microScan3 is intuitive to use. After the Safety Designer software has been configured, you can carry out device diagnosis during operation using the display and pushbuttons.
