SICK LMS 111 laser sensor

Sick LMS100 and LMS111 series of non-safety rated laser measurement system sensors. The LMS111 Laser Measurement System is a non-contact sensor designed for outdoor anti-collision environments. The LMS100 is designed for indoor profiling applications. Both sensors have advanced filtering technology to eliminate false trips in measurement applications.

These compact laser measurement sensors have adjustable mounting configurations and are rated IP67, able to withstand wet weather conditions. The LMS100 and LMS111 also offer extremely flexible software that is well suited for a variety of applications, the company says, including those in outdoor environments, material handling, robotics, and mobile vehicles. By using the free Sick Sopas configuration tool, a user can configure the sensors with up to 10 detected fields, multiple I/O, and Boolean logic.

The LMS111 is ideal for container ports, retrofitting RMG and RTG type cranes for anti-collision applications. Applications for the LMS100 Laser Measurement System are in the material handling market.

Sick says it is among the world's leading manufacturers of sensors, safety systems, machine vision, and automatic identification products for factory and logistics automation.
