SICK Launces New Ultra-Compact Safety Laser Scanner

SICK announced it is launching its newest ultra-compact safety laser scanner, nanoScan3. This product combines smart safety functions with excellent measurement data quality for accurate and reliable localization.

With an overall height of just over 3 in., this space-saving sensor can be used wherever machines and vehicles require maximum performance, but have minimal mounting space. This enables manufacturers to use small AGVs or mobile robots equipped with SICK’s safety technology.

Based on microScan3 technology, the 2D safety sensor, nanoScan3, uses patented safeHDDM® scan technology. This enables the nanoScan3 to hold up well even in harsh or challenging ambient conditions. It is impervious to interferences like dust, contamination, and ambient light.
