The sensors in the UM12 product family impress with compact dimensions in a rugged metal housing. Different output signals including IO-Link interface provide for maximum flexibility in tight installation space. Color-independent detection, high contamination tolerance, and outstanding background suppression deliver stable measurement results even under challenging conditions. With the UM12 ultrasonic sensor, SICK is now able to offer the proven technology for any application, in an M12 housing.
At a glance
Very short and rugged M12 metal housing
Wide variety of interfaces and IO-Link
Optimal background suppression
Integrated temperature compensation
Detection, measurement, or positioning with ultrasound
Regardless of material color, transparency, gloss, or ambient light
Virtually unlimited use – regardless of color, gloss, and transparency
SICK ultrasonic sensors perform measurement and detection tasks in a wide variety of application areas on colored, shiny, or transparent surfaces, which are particularly challenging for optical sensors. Even adverse ambient conditions such as dust, dirt, or fog hardly affect the measurement result. The broad detection range also allows for a large field to be monitored with just one sensor – with a measuring range of 13 mm to 8 m. No matter where they are: the ultrasonic sensors from SICK are at your side in any industry. The extensive product portfolio offers you a wide range of solutions for your application. See for yourself.

Applications in focus
Ultrasonic sensors are true all-rounders. SICK ultrasonic sensors demonstrate their reliability and precision in virtually any application, from measuring distances or detecting solid, powdered, or liquid media. No matter the industry, no matter the application.
SICK ultrasonic sensors show their strengths in the contact-free detection of objects in all imaginable applications. These all-rounders reliably and precisely master all automation requirements on your processes.
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.
