Sick High Performance Sensors more information High-performance Sensors

Contrast sensors recognize differences in material brightness and color. SICK Contrast sensors detect minimum contrast levels at maximum speeds, such as print marks on foil, packaging and print products. They detect small differences in grey values between mark and background on matte, gloss or transparent surfaces. 
Luminescence sensors recognize fluorescent markings, labels, threads, lubricants and adhesives. Color sensors identify and differentiate objects by color.  Color sensors function using a special three-color method.  Fork sensors combine the sender and receiver in a single housing. This ensures very reliable detection.  SICK offers the most distance measurement products in the industry, providing more flexibility and value for its customers. You can detect distances or other dimensions, such as filling levels or positions precisely using SICK distance measurement sensors.

Sick Machine Vision Sensors Vision Sensors

SICK's vision sensors are easy to use, rugged and reliable.  From part inspection... to verifying presence... to color sorting and optical character recognition, SICK has a solution.  SICK smart cameras can be programmed to read, inspect, locate, identify and/or measure features in the acquired image data. A PC or laptop is used for application development and the camera operates stand-alone or as a part of factory network.  The IVC-2D smart cameras come in standard VGA and high XGA resolutions and operate on gray scale images. The IVC-3D smart cameras are complete systems for high-speed capturing and analysis of true shape data. Measuring the third dimension provides knowledge about object height, shape and volume, independent of contrast.

Sick 3D Vision Cameras more information High speed 3D Vision Solutions

Ranger and Ruler are high speed 3D cameras for advanced applications and tough industrial environments. The cameras measures object shape (3D) at unmatched speed and quality at the same time as measuring other object features such as gray scale and laser scatter (MultiScan).
Measuring the 3rd dimension provides knowledge about object height, shape, or volume. In combination with the MultiScan technology, most object information necessary for a robust and reliable decision is provided by one single camera - thus decreasing solution complexity and cost.
