User-customisable photoelectric sensors

User-customisable photoelectric sensors

Sick has developed the SureSense family of user-customisable photo-electric sensors – a concept that enables machine builders and plant engineers to specify from a wide-range of sensing options all within a standard technology, set-up, mounting and housing.

The durable SureSense sensors can reliably detect nearly any object in any environment – ensuring machines and lines stay up and running at full capacity.

David Hannaby, Sick’s UK product manager for presence detection, explains why Sick developed the technology. “We are seeing more companies looking to use a hybrid sensor that allows flexibility in mounting either from the side or from the front. During installation and operation, SureSense’s signal strength bar gives clear indication of the sensor’s performance and making set up and operation easier for engineers.”

He continues: “The Sick SureSense enables machine builders and plant engineers to standardise on one single sensor family for the most basic to advanced applications. Users can literally build their own sensors online, expect prompt delivery and quickly commission their sensors for optimal performance.

“As a result, machine design variables, plant maintenance costs and stores inventories can be all be dramatically streamlined.”
