SICK sensors: the perfect base for the automation of your facilities

SICK is among the leading manufacturers of sensors for the automation of factories, processes and logistics systems. Thanks to its technological and commercial leadership, SICK offers sensors and solutions for industrial applications that constitute the perfect base for the safe and effective control of processes, for the protection of people and for the prevention of accidents and environmental damages.

Since April 2019, URUMAT is the Official and Exclusive Representative of SICK for all Uruguay in the following products lines

Opto-electronic protective devices

Opto-electronic protective devices are the first choice in order to implement maximum productivity for machines and plants. Unlike fences and doors, they do not limit during handling or material transport and provide a better view in the machine room. The broad portfolio comprehensively meets the requirements of hazardous point protection, access protection, and hazardous area protection. Coordinated complete systems can be built using a SICK-specific interface.

Encoders

Paths, position, angle – an encoder is the ideal solution when it comes to precise position detection in industrial automation. The same applies to measuring revolutions and rpm as well as speed and acceleration. High-resolution optical encoders and extremely rugged magnetic encoders complement one another perfectly and permit exact measurements in all kinds of applications. Rotary encoders are available as incremental and absolute encoders. Wire draw encoders and linear encoders with a measuring element are available in linear measuring technology.

Fiber-optic sensors and fibers

When installation space is extremely limited or the objects to be detected are tiny, fiber-optic sensors are the ideal solution. If it is necessary for even higher requirements to be fulfilled, such as sensing range, temperature resistance, material durability or a flexible mounting process, the intelligent combination of sensors and fiber-optic cables can provide the perfect solution. A wide range of fiber-optic cables with application-specific optical heads ensure that every need is met.

Photoelectric Sensors

SICK's vast range of photoelectric sensors offer precise optics and advanced technology, creating market-leading solutions with sensor intelligence. By using the latest SIRIC® and LED technologies, these sensors offer the highest level of operational reliability regardless of any interference factors. Additional sensor information can be used to simplify modern production processes.This extensive range of photoelectric sensors is used in many automation applications around the world.

Safety switches

Safety switches are indispensable in any application where safety is required for people and machinery. They are used for protecting movable physical guards, determining the position of dangerous movements, and the safe stop function. The portfolio is divided into electro-mechanical and non-contact safety switches, safety locking devices, and safety command devices.In conjunction with safe control solutions, SICK offers ideal complete solutions from a single source.

Sens:Control

As well as focusing on increasing productivity, intelligent machine design also delivers optimum quality and safety. sens:Control – safe control solutions by SICK meet these requirements. The product portfolio includes safe series connection, safety controllers and safety relays. The products impress with easy commissioning, modularity, and optimum integration into automation processes – for optimum interaction between human and machine.

Distance Sensors

SICK has a wide range of optic and ultrasonic solutions that measure from sub-microns to kilometers. They solve measuring, detecting and positioning applications using triangulation and time-of-flight modes. Sensors using triangulation are ideal for short-range, highly precise measurement. They can inspect miniature parts, thickness and shape, etc. Time-of-flight sensors work at longer distances, are not influenced by reflectivity or ambient light − perfect for positioning AS/RS, rail cars and gantry cranes.

Fluid Sensors

Optimized control of process parameters is the main driver for increasing efficiency and reducing input of valuable resources. Whether it's pressure measurement, temperature measurement, level control or flow metering – SICK offers a wide range of solutions for measuring process variables for liquids, gases and bulk solids and protecting against overfill and dry run. SICK devices are rugged and easy to use. Innovative sensor technology enables accurate, universal measurement independent of material type.

Proximity Sensor

Proximity sensors provide non-contact detection of a wide variety of objects and media. SICK’s sensors are perfectly suited to industrial applications and requirements. SICK’s inductive, capacitive and magnetic proximity sensors offer a long service life, extreme ruggedness and the utmost precision. SICK intelligently and reliably solves industry-specific and individual automation tasks.

Registration Sensor

The variety of tasks in automated production processes today, such as in packaging and printing machines, require sensors with the highest performance standards. Typical applications are the detection of visible and non-visible marks, labels and colors at high speeds as well as the detection of small parts and precise positioning. SICK offers a wide range of contrast, markless, color, luminescence, fork and array sensors to solve this wide spectrum of demanding tasks.

Inertial Sensor

Knowing the position of objects is essential for process automation in mobile applications in particular. SICK offers a wide range of inertial sensors for this purpose. The product portfolio ranges from conventional static through dynamic inclination sensors which deliver accurate position information at all times, even in accelerated applications.

Magnetic cylinder sensor

Innovative cylinder sensors from SICK. Features like ease of handling, the option of an analog output, optimum switching characteristics, suitability for use in the food and beverage industry, support for the latest IO-Link technology, and universal mounting options with our comprehensive range of adapters, magnetic cylinder sensors from SICK are equipped for all installation locations and conditions.

Identification Solutions

Product traceability and anti-counterfeiting solutions require reliable automatic identification products. SICK offers the three most common industrial identification technologies: laser-based scanners for 1D codes, image-based 1D and 2D code readers, and RFID readers. Integrated interfaces enable the readers to communicate inside industrial networks and innovative functionality makes commissioning and operation easy.

Detection and Ranging Solutions

The LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) laser measurement technology offers solutions for a wide range of applications. The two- or more-dimension contour data recorded can be processed both internally and externally. The technology is ideal for indoor and outdoor applications, for example anti-collision in ports, classification in traffic, detection in building automation, or position evaluation in navigation, for example.
