Sick Sensor Intelligence - Industrial Sensors Solutions

SICK industrial sensors can reliably sort, count, inspect, measure, recognise and verify the position, size and overall shape of objects. SICK's vast range of industrial sensors and sensing solutions vary from photoelectric, capacitive and magnetic proximity sensors.

Sick Capacitive Proximity Sensors

Sick Capacitive Proximity SensorSick Capacitive Proximity Sensors are ideal for industrial applications which require level and feed monitoring. Whether sensing solid material such as paper, cardboard or wood or looking for granules or liquids, Sick Capacitive Proximity Sensors reliably detect the status of a product throughout the production process and final inspection. Sensing ranges between 1 and 25mm, Sick Capacitive proximity sensors allow clearance in most installations and are extremely adaptable for a wide range of industrial applications.

Sick Capacitive Proximity Sensors are also suitable for extremely harsh industrial environment. Impurities and contamination, dust and airborne spray particles and even electro magnetic interferences have little effect on these proximity sensors. Sick Capacitive Sensors are installed in numerous diverse markets, encompassing the food industry, automobile industry, storage and conveying technologies.

More Control can supply and recommend the ideal capacitive sensing solution for any industrial application. More Control can help you select the right sensors for any automation control system.
