The SICK MicroScan3 is an innovative safety laser scanner designed for use in manufacturing applications. Built with SICK safeHDDM™ scanning technology, the MicroScan3 outperforms other safety laser scanners.
The scanner features a 275° scanning angle and an industry-leading 9-meter protective range. With a sleek and compact size (112mm x 163.1mm x 111mm) and a durable aluminum construction, the MicroScan3 can be installed where other safety devices cannot.
The MicroScan3 utilizes non-proprietary connection ports to reduce the cost of cabling and installation and features the easy-to-use SICK Safety Designer programming software. A single scanning unit can be configured to monitor four protective fields simultaneously and store up to eight different configurations.
The key to the MicroScan3’s reliability and accuracy is SICK’s safeHDDM™ scanning technology. The scanner has a wide field of view and protection range, reaching 9 meters of protected area in a 275-degree view. The second longest protection range is a mere 5 ½ feet. The MicroScan3 also filters and evaluates 88,000 individual pulses per revolution overcoming challenging ambient conditions such as dust, debris, and changing lighting.
The scanner features a die-cast aluminum housing making it sturdy, compact, and lightweight. Advances in component technology also allows the MicroScan3 to have industry-leading electromagnetic compatibility. It is easy to install and re-install with configuration memory making relocation easy.
The MicroScan3 integrates with existing industrial safety networks via CIP Safety™ via EtherNet/IP™ or PROFIsafe via PROFINET via any desired access point in the network. They can also pull configuration data from the network allowing for quick changeover.
