Safety and Security For Construction, Quarrying and Mining With Sıck Outdoor Scanners

Safety and security scanning for all external environments from large construction and civil engineering sites to conveyors and other heavy moving plant above or below ground is now available with SICK’s IP67 rated / PLd and SIL 2 certificated OS2000 laser scanner.

Developed by SICK, the OS2000 enables a high reliability, electronic safety and security screen to be maintained outdoors despite the harshest conditions and exposure. The system is ideal for the detection of movement of people, vehicles and objects for safety, security and collision avoidance, including emergency stops and machine control.

The OS2000 is easy to install and set up, yet 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, and reconfiguration to meet changed conditions is easy.

The OS2000 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.

Use of high reliability electronics and with self testing and system status indication capability ensure its operability in situations where mechanically based safety systems might fail or not offer the flexibility and controllability required.
