For reliable distance measurement, both indoors and outdoors: The Dx1000 long range distance sensor with infrared laser is ideal for use on cranes, for detecting vehicles in traffic applications, and for measuring hot steel slabs in a steel mill. The Dx1000 features exceptional versatility in any application – HDDM+ (High Definition Distance Measurement with multi-echo technology) enables distance measurements with high measurement accuracy, even in the presence of ambient light, rain, snow, and fog. It excels at axial object tracking and quickly detecting the edges of objects moved in from the side. The device does all this at measurement cycle times of down to one millisecond, making it ideal for use in control loops.
At a glance
Long range distance sensor with infrared laser featuring HDDM+ technology
Measures natural objects (DT1000) or reflectors (DL1000)
Dust-proof and waterproof housing (IP 65 and IP 67) made of highly corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy
Configurable digital inputs and outputs, analog output and fieldbus interfaces (dependent on variant)
When it comes to taking reliable measurements of extremely long distances both indoors and out, the Dx1000 long range distance sensor is particularly impressive thanks to its exceptional performance. Equipped with the modern HDDM+ technology, the Dx1000 ensures stable measurement results in a rugged housing, even in inclement weather. Designed by SICK, this measuring technology is the ideal choice for adverse ambient conditions and offers a flexible range of applications at high speeds.
Reliable distance measurements in inclement weather
High reliability even under adverse ambient conditions
High measurement uncertainty with intuitive operation
In most applications, the distance sensor receives exactly one echo from the reflection on the measuring object and converts this into a distance value. In real application situations, protective windows or environmental influences such as precipitation in the measurement path could cause unwanted echos. Thanks to HDDM+ with multi-echo technology, the useful echo can be identified and selected for distance measurement. This enables distance measurements with high measurement reliability, even in the presence of multiple echoes.

Intuitive for reliable measurement thanks to multi-echo technology
Innovative distance measurement in compact housing
The Dx1000 with HDDM+ is perfectly suited for the measurement of very long distances - with relatively short measurement cycle times as little as 1 ms and low noise in measurement value data. The sensor variants DT1000 for distance measurement on natural objects and DL1000 for measuring on reflectors cover a wide spectrum of uses and offer high flexibility in application. When measuring on natural objects, the DT1000 reaches distances of over 450 m. The DL1000 has a maximum sensing range of 1,500 m when measuring on “diamond-grade” reflective tape.
Designed for all kinds of requirements
High level of application flexibility
SICK LifeTime Services
SICK’s services increase machine and plant productivity, enhance the safety of people all over the world, provide a solid foundation for a sustainable business operation, and protect investment goods. In addition to its usual consulting services, SICK provides direct on-site support during the conceptual design and commissioning phases as well as during operation.
The range of services not only covers aspects like maintenance and inspection, but also includes performance checks as well as upgrades and retrofits. Modular or customized service contracts extend the service life of plants and therefore increase their availability. If faults occur or limit values are exceeded, these are detected at all times by the corresponding sensors and systems.
