deTec4 - the new safety light curtain from SICK
SICK Safety Assistant
The SICK Safety Assistant App reads configuration and diagnosis data from the safety light curtain deTec4 by using NFC communication.
Safe and intelligent
With the NFC technology, you have entirely new options for on-site diagnosis using a smartphone. IO-Link also makes it possible to read out diagnostic data continuously regardless of your location. The data acquired in this way can then be used for subsequent process steps, for example, taking height measurements and using a safety function at the same time. Easy configuration, completely without software, also saves time and money.
Unnecessary downtimes and machine failures rapidly impact productivity. deTec4 provides support to machine operators and maintenance personnel in the efficient operation of machines and systems. The extended range of functions provided by the deTec4 is an innovation, ensuring increased availability. With the automation and measurement functions, you already have an eye toward the future. With the innovative SP1 and SP2 system plugs, you can easily activate the desired functions without software.
Intelligent protection for more productivity
Become a technology leader
Increased productivity and short downtimes—the future of mobile maintenance
Safety guaranteed on all levels
With the deTec4 light curtain, your safety solution is ready to use quickly. Thanks to the uniform housing design, standardized connectivity, and compatible accessories for the entire deTec product family, implementation into the machine design is always the same. Featuring sophisticated modularity, the deTec enables necessary functions to be activated using the matching system plug. An improved alignment display directly on the safety light curtain saves time, making additional software unnecessary.
Day after day, the deTec safety light curtain ensures safety of personnel in a cost-effective manner for many industries. The intelligent device concept illustrates the innovative approach to productivity and future viability: rapid commissioning, resulting in significantly faster system effectiveness, which in turn improves system efficiency.
Increase productivity with greater machine safety
Intelligent protection for more productivity
Time is money – simple mounting, alignment, and commissioning in a matter of minutes. The DIP Switch Assistant in the smartphone app or in the IO-Link configuration software shows the right settings for the system plug.
SAFEST UNDER HIGH PRESSURE WHEN USING IP69K
Safety and quality are paramount in the production and processing of food: Supply contaminated or inedible goods, and you will be faced with considerable financial losses and damage to your reputation. That is why hygienic packaging and cleaning processes as well as a safe machine design are so important in the food industry.
deTec IP69K and deTem IP69K: The introduction of the deTec safety light curtains and the deTem multiple light beam safety devices has made protecting hazardous points and access points easier than ever. All of our application knowledge has been packed into the optimized protective housing with enclosure rating IP69K, resulting in a high degree of productivity.
For our newest generation of safety light curtains and multiple light beam safety devices with enclosure rating IP69K, we did not only rethink the design. We also kept in mind the wish for more flexibility in the application. You can see this in a variety of different applications.
VERSATILE APPLICATION - SAFETY AT ALL TIMES
A safe and rewarding investment
Increased productivity thanks to long service life and high durability
SAFETY IN EXPLOSIVE ENVIRONMENTS
Explosive environments are governed by particularly stringent safety regulations and standards. As a global leader in the supply of opto-electronic protective devices, SICK develops innovative solutions, such as the explosion-proof enclosure for safety light curtains, to ensure these standards are adhered to. deTec Core safety light curtains can be used to implement different Ex zones depending on the application.
Safety light curtains make a crucial contribution to the effective protection of people and working environments. When combined with SICK’s deTec variants, the field of application of these devices can be expanded to include industries that require explosion protection measures and compliance with applicable standards.
