Higher External Safety and Security for Industry

with New SICK OS2000 IP67 / SIL2 Outdoor Scanners. SAFETY AND SECURITY scanning for all external environments, from freight and goods yards to external plant, isolated buildings, ponds, channels and reservoirs, gates, fences, entrances and driverless vehicles, is now available with SICK's IP67 rated / PLd and SIL 2 certificated OS2000 laser scanner.

Developed by SICK, the leading manufacturer of intelligent sensors and sensor solutions, the OS2000 enables a high reliability, electronic safety and security screen to be maintained outdoors despite the harshest conditions and exposure. The system is ideal for the detection of movement of people, vehicles and objects for safety, security and collision avoidance, including emergency stops and machine control.

The OS2000 is extremely easy to install and set up, yet capable of sophisticated and multi-sensor deployment with its intelligent BUS connections. Its versatility allows it to be used for a wide variety of situations and applications, vertically or horizontally, and reconfiguration to meet changed conditions is easy.

The OS2000 is believed to be the first scanner of its type to be CE certificated to performance Level d (EN ISO 13849-1) and SIL2 (EN162061), which allow it to be used where safety demands are critical.

Use of high reliability electronics and with self testing and system status indication capability ensure its operability in situations where mechanically

based safety systems might fail or not offer the flexibility and controllability required.

The OS2000's scanning angle of 100º or 180º and range of up to 20 metres enables very effective coverage of wide areas with an economical use of scanners. The operating temperature range between -30ºC and +50ºC, and IP67 environmental protection housings, mean security whatever the weather or environment, from marine to desert, winter or summer.
