SICK is a leader of factory and process automation technology offering photoelectric sensors, safety solutions, machine vision and bar code scanners.

2D Machine Vision Sensors2D vision sensors

SICK offers a powerful 2D Machine Vision Sensor portfolio designed to manage challenges in all industries where a standard sensor would not work. These vision sensors provide a full toolset for positioning, inspection, measurement and reading, depending on the variant. A flexible optical design fulfills the needs of almost all applications. Simplicity is ensured by automatic setup, intelligent algorithms and a common, intuitive user interface.

2D vision sensors from SICK are easily configurable to solve a wide range of applications. With added flexibility, solving the most challenging task is easy with functionality that can be extended by programming. Together, with a broad range of 2D vision cameras for additional flexibility, you can be sure there is a suitable product to solve your automation challenges.

3D Vision Solutions

3d vision

SICK's 3D Vision series offers a wide range of powerful and flexible products designed for reliable operation in harsh industrial environments. They range from versatile high-speed cameras that deliver high quality 3D and contrast images to smart and configurable stand-alone sensors that facilitate rapid development and easy integration. Their scalability ensures a perfect fit with your 3D vision application.

The 3D vision portfolio from SICK covers the full range from powerful high-speed 3D cameras to easily configurable stand-alone 3D vision sensors. Leveraging on different 3D technologies, there is always a match to solve your application in the best possible way.

Identification Solutions

ID readers

SICK laser and Image-based Barcode Readers provide flexibility, high performance, convenience and simplicity. Even at fast conveyor speeds, SICK image code readers can reliably detect and evaluate 1D, 2D, DPM (direct part marking) and partially damaged codes.

Image-based code readers provide flexible reading of various code types, for example 2D codes such as data matrix codes, regardless of the code alignment (360°).

Fixed mount bar code scanners read bar codes at various distances and with different object sizes with just one device thanks to a large depth of field.

Handheld scanners offer mobile scanning of a variety of code types (for example bar codes and 2D codes such as data matrix codes) and ability to read the code regardless of its orientation (360°) – for maximum flexibility. Reading distances of up to 16 m for time-saving code scanning and therefore higher productivity.

Photoelectric Sensorsphotoelectric sensors

SICK’s wide range of Photoelectric Sensors utilize precise optics and advanced technology to solve measuring, detecting and positioning applications. By using the latest SIRIC and LED technologies, these sensors offer the highest level of operational reliability regardless of any interference factors.

When installation space is extremely limited or the objects to be detected are tiny, Fiber-optic Sensors are the ideal solution.

SICK has a wide range of Distance Sensors that measure from sub-micron to kilometers.

Proximity Sensors

proximity sensors

SICK's Inductive Sensors utilize the latest ASIC technology and are available in cylindrical or rectangular sensors with single, double or triple operating distances.

Capacitive Proximity Sensors are ideal for level and feed monitoring. From solid material, such as paper or wood, to granules or liquids, they reliably detect the status of the product during the production process and final inspection.

Magnetic Proximity Sensors provide long sensing ranges that can reliably detect magnetic objects, with entirely new application options opened up due to the smaller magnets.

RFID Solutions

rfid technology

Radio-based RFID Technologies in the HF (high frequency) and UHF (ultra high frequency) ranges supplement SICK’s industrial automation portfolio. In applications where process-relevant data is modified remotely, RFID makes it possible to store data on writable and rewritable media. And, in contrast to optical solutions, RFID provides reliable identification of all objects – despite dirt and everyday wear.

Ultrasonic Sensorsultrasonic sensors

Ultrasonic Sensors from SICK use acoustic properties. The sensors accurately detect objects and distances, and with excellent background suppression and resistance against ambient conditions such as dust or fog.




safety light curtains

SICK’s flexible, compact and reliable Absolute Encoders generate information about position, angle and rotation counts in type-specific angle steps.

SICK Incremental Encoders generate information about position, angle and rotation counts. The resolution is defined in the number of lines or pulses per rotation, which the encoder transmits to the control unit for each rotation.

Safety Light Curtains

SICK Safety Light Curtains reliably and cost-effectively protect against access into hazardous points and areas. They range from small and compact types to extremely robust and resistant variants that withstand special ambient conditions up to the highest safety level.


Safety Laser Scanners

safety laser scanners

SICK Safety Laser Scanners combine know-how and experience with maximum performance. Whether mobile or stationary, for area protection or access protection, indoors or outdoors – this comprehensive portfolio offers the right cost-effective package for each and every requirement. Using the time-of-flight measurement principle, the compact devices scan their surroundings and measure distances.

Safety Controllerssafety controllers

SICK's Safety Controllers provide straightforward, flexible and scalable solutions for the implementation of intelligent machine design. Flexi safety controllers create a modular hardware platform without the use of complex software. They are user-friendly and provide the ideal basis for easy integration of all safety control components. Their compact design makes these safety controllers optimally suited for a variety of applications.

Electro-Mechanical Safety Switchessafety switches

Electro-mechanical Safety Switches monitor movable physical guards both efficiently and reliably. The portfolio consists of three product groups: safety position switches, safety hinge switches and safety switches with a separate actuator. Safety switches with locking function lock protective devices securely and prevent access to areas which are protected by protective devices.
