Product News: SICK’s ultra-compact safety laser scanner

April 10, 2020
Combines smart safety functions with excellent measurement data quality.

SICK is launching its newest ultra-compact safety laser scanner, nanoScan3, which combines smart safety functions with excellent measurement data quality for accurate and reliable localization, according to its maker.

SICK's nanoScan3

With an overall height of about three inches, this space-saving sensor can be used wherever machines and vehicles require maximum performance, but have minimal mounting space, per SICK. This enables manufacturers to use small AGVs or mobile robots equipped with SICK’s leading-edge safety technology.

Based on its microScan3 technology, the 2D safety sensor nanoScan3 uses patented safeHDDM scan technology, which enables the device to perform in harsh or challenging ambient conditions. It is impervious to interferences like dust, contamination and ambient light, according to SICK.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Small housing, measuring only 3.15 inches in height
  • Two pairs of OSSD safety outputs
  • Design suitable for industrial use and easy to integrate with standard M12 connectivity
  • Up to 128 freely configurable fields and monitoring cases
  • Direct static and encoder inputs for flexible monitoring case switching
  • Protective field range of three meters with a scanning angle of 275-degrees
  • High-precision measurement data output for navigation support via ethernet interface
  • Maximum detection reliability even when subject to challenging ambient conditions
  • Intuitive Safety Designer software enables flexibility in configuration and diagnostics
