Fog is detected reliably and causes a safe stop at a visual range below 50 m.

You are prepared for changing weather conditions with the outdoorScan3

Accessories specially developed for outdoor use reduce the impact of weather

In outdoor areas, the outdoorScan3 is exposed to changing weather conditions. Use the offered accessories that can be individually assembled for your application requirements to increase the availability of the safety laser scanner.
The airWiper mounted on the safety laser scanner channels compressed air to remove water drops from the optics cover. This ensures the high availability of the outdoorScan3.
Thanks to the splash guard with special foam insert and weather protection hood, you reduce unwanted downtime in wet conditions.
The mounting system optimizes the interaction of the accessory components and enables rapid integration of the sensor into your application solution.

Modular accessories for high performance of the safety laser scanner

Intuitive operation of the outdoorScan3 for smooth operation

Both commissioning and handling during ongoing operation are as easy, self-explanatory and convenient as with the safety laser scanners from SICK for indoor areas.
Highly visible LEDs and a multi-color display facilitate operation.
Intuitive handling of the Safety Designer configuration and diagnostic software.
With its rugged design and the unique shape of the optics cover, the outdoorScan3 is perfectly suited for outdoor use.

Unites the proven integration and operating concept of indoor safety laser scanners with high profitability
