Sick UK will showcase its innovative LMS 100 series laser sensors and the RFH620 RFID sensor on stand D3612 at Drives and Controls 2010.
According to the company, the LMS 100 laser sensor benefits from an ability to avoid false signals, broad usability and competitive price; as such, it will be attractive for security, safety and presence detection applications, both indoors and outdoors.
Sick LMS 100 series laser sensors are compact devices with a short to medium distance measurement range of up to 18m and 270-degree detection fields with 0.5 degree object detection. They eliminate the need for transmitter/sensor pairs and costly associated wiring, are easy to mount and set up on site, and can be configured for monitoring up to ten defined fields.
Double pulse evaluation technology enables LMS 100 sensors to eliminate distracting minor beam reflections such might be caused by rain or fine water spray, or dust on the sensor surface, and they can even be mounted behind glass.
The self-contained RFH620 RFID sensor offers the same look and feel as a barcode reader. The parameterisation, operation and communication functions of this scanner are implemented using SOPAS software. According to Sick, the RFH620 boasts high transmission rates, and it can achieve ranges of up to 16cm and rapid signal and data processing, enabling object speeds of up to 3m/s to be used.
