SICK is presenting a worldwide innovation with the outdoorScan3

Feb 16, 2024

Don Horne Sponsored content With the outdoorScan3 safety laser scanner, SICK is now entering the outdoor areas of industrial environments. With this product, SICK has closed another gap in the complete automation of industrial processes and strengthened the functioning collaboration between humans and machines. One of the applications SICK has its eye on is the safe and reliable navigation of automated guided vehicle systems outside the gates, despite weather influences such as sun, rain, snow or fog. Many others are currently in the works and a wide range of other applications is imaginable. This brings us one step closer to a real self-controlling value-added chain in the spirit of Industry 4.0. With the jump from indoors to outdoors, the manufacturer of intelligent sensor solutions is once again pushing the limits of the possible – worldwide. Functionality in all weather conditions The outdoorScan3 has its increased resistance to sunlight, rain, snow and fog to thank for its excellent outdoor qualities. It uses the newly-developed outdoor safeHDDM scan technology for this purpose. This technology means the laser scanner can work without errors when exposed to sunlight with an illumination intensity of up to 40,000 lux. In addition, the intelligent software algorithm of the outdoorScan3 detects rain and snow, easily filtering out these environmental influences – rain, for example, up to a precipitation intensity of 10 mm/h. Even in fog with a meteorological visual range of up to 50 m, the outdoorScan3 detects all obstacles with total reliability, due to its special fogSight fog function. Outdoor use poses even greater challenges to safety sensors than indoor use. Inside halls, weather conditions have no influence and the light and temperature conditions do not change so extremely. However, sensors have to be sensitive outside when they need to detect weak signals to safely detect people. At the same time, they must ignore signals that disturb their work. The outdoorScan3 reliably masters these challenges and can be used in temperature ranges from -25 to +50 °C. Versatile range of applications With the development of the outdoorScan3, SICK is leading the way and showing its innovative strength. SICK is also setting standards for when it comes to legislation. A completely new standard should answer the question of safety in outdoor areas in general terms. The internationally valid standard IEC 62998 was initiated by SICK, the outdoorScan3 will also be ensuring safety worldwide in outdoor areas, and is coming to Canada in April 2019.
