SICK’s ‘Tiny TiMs’ first to plug the low-risk safety gap

SICK’s ‘Tiny TiMs’ first to plug the low-risk safety gap
SICK has launched the first 2D LiDAR sensors safety-certified to PL b, specifically designed to plug a gap for lower-risk applications where safety-rated integration is needed in small, low-speed Automated Guided Vehicles and Carts, service robots or collaborative robots. The SICK TiM361S and TiM781S 2D LiDAR sensors are economical, lightweight and compact with a safety certification to EN ISO 13849-1:2015 PL b and can be integrated inconspicuously into low-speed, small or lightweight mobile or stationary applications, following completion of an appropriate risk assessment.

Brickstream people counting sensor with employee filter solution

Brickstream people counting sensor with employee filter solution
FLIR Systems has announced the latest generation of the FLIR Brickstream 3D Gen 2 people counting sensor. This new version includes an employee filtering feature designed to provide retail and shopping businesses with more accurate customer traffic data and sales conversion metrics. The employee filtering feature uses a combination of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology and employee-worn tags to automatically identify and remove staff from customer counts, a process that can otherwise be manual or missing in retail environments.

SICK shrinks UHF RFID read/writing with smallest industrial device

SICK shrinks UHF RFID read/writing with smallest industrial device
SICK has launched the smallest industrial UHF RFID read/write device of its kind, the RFU610, creating new opportunities to integrate RFID track and trace capability in automated machines and mobile vehicles across production, materials handling, and logistics environments. Almost half the size of SICK’s next-level, mid-range RFU620 reader, the RFU610 needs an installation space of just 80x92x38mm and achieves an impressive scanning range of ≤0.5m.
