Minneapolis, MN–Sick, a manufacturer of sensors, safety systems, machine vision and automatic identification products for factory and logistics automation, announces its Inspector I20 Flex vision sensor. The unit augments Sick’s existing line of Inspector vision sensors by providing new features that include interchangeable lenses and an I/O extension module with up to 16 outputs. The latter makes the sensor appropriate for any high-speed sensing application in the packaging industry.

The I20 offers four different lens options that make it easy to quickly alter the field of view based on the type of application. In addition, the I/O extension module enables users to program up to 19 outputs. These additional outputs, along with the unit’s ability to logically combine detailed inspection tools, provide improved confirmation on pass/fail inspections. The I20 also allows for more precise analysis of parts, no matter what angle or orientation a product comes down the line, according to the company.
With nearly 450 patents, Sick is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of sensors, safety systems, machine vision and automatic identification products for industrial applications in the automotive, packaging, electronics, food and beverage, and logistics and material handling markets. SICK was founded in 1946 and has operations or representation in 65 countries worldwide.
