German manufacturere SICK has developed a new IP67 rated/PLd and SIL 2 certificated OS2000 outdoor laser scanner system that detects the movement of people, vehicles and objects for safety, security and collision avoidance including emergency stops and machine control.

New scanning sensor for vessel or shore side safety.

According to the company, the OS2000 is ideal for all external environments from vessels to harbours, docks, cranes, container parks, bridges and vehicles and it is believed to be the first scanner of its type to be CE certificated to performance Level d (EN ISO 13849-1) and SIL2 (EN162061), which allow it to be used where safety demands are critical.

The OS2000t is said to be extremely easy to install and set up, and is capable of sophisticated and multi-sensor deployment with its intelligent BUS connections. Its versatility allows it to be used for a wide variety of situations and applications vertically or horizontally, with simple reconfiguration to meet changed conditions.

Use of high reliability electronics and with self testing and system status indication capability ensure the scanner’s ability to operate in situations where mechanically based safety systems might fail or not offer the flexibility and required level of control.

The OS2000’s scanning angle of 100º or 180º and range of up to 20 m enables very effective coverage of wide areas with an economical use of scanners. The operating temperature range between -30ºC and +50ºC, and IP67 environmental protection housings, mean security whatever the weather or environment, from marine to desert, winter or summer.
