Distance sensor is an all-rounder

27 September 2022

The next-generation OD2000 distance sensor from SICK combines precision reliability with economy to deliver a versatile ‘all-rounder’ for multiple applications in factory automation and intralogistics.

The stand-alone and compact SICK OD2000 has been developed to provide a universal product family with minimal variants, while making configuration and parameterisation ‘plug and play’. 

With IO-Link as standard, the sensor offers versatile machine integration possibilities, while providing for diagnostics and condition monitoring.

With a measuring range up to 1,200mm and a measuring frequency of up to 7.5 kHz, the OD2000 is suited to a wide range of positioning and quality control tasks in automated production and assembly, including robotics. 

Using its high-precision triangulation measurement principle, it achieves high repeatability and linearity, and is said to be able to detect the smallest differences in height, even in the micrometre range .  

With five different measuring ranges between 25 and 1,200 mm, the sensor is suited to use in demanding, high-speed measurement regardless of surface, diameter, thickness or width. It is can also solve challenging background suppression applications where precise distance differentiation or small hysteresis settings are required.
