While on the industrial theme this might be a good time to highlight the new safety scanner from Sick. Sick specializes in providing scanners that are used for security and for protecting people that operate dangerous machinery in real time.
Sick’s microScan3 Core safety laser scanner features a 5.5-m range and a 275-deg scanning angle ideal for area and access guarding. The microScan3 features safeHDDM (high definition distance measurement) scanning technology. This scanning technology, based on time-of-flight, is designed to improve scan accuracy when faced with dirty environments, weld sparks, or cross talk for less downtime.
