Proximity sensors provide non-contact detection of a wide variety of objects and media. SICK’s sensors are perfectly suited to industrial applications and requirements. SICK’s inductive, capacitive and magnetic proximity sensors offer a long service life, extreme ruggedness and the utmost precision. SICK intelligently and reliably solves industry-specific and individual automation tasks.
Reliable, powerful, rugged. Inductive proximity sensors from SICK Millions of inductive proximity sensors are currently in use in virtually all industries. They detect metal objects without contact, and are characterized by a long service life and extreme ruggedness. With the latest ASIC technology, SICK's sensors offer the ultimate in precision and reliability.
Sometimes you just need to know what is hidden behind a surface. For example behind a wall or cover, or what is inside in a storage container or shipping container. Capacitive proximity sensors are ideal for level and feed monitoring. From solid material, such as paper or wood, to granules or liquids, they reliably detect the status of the product during the production process and final inspection. Is there something behind that cover? Is the filled package really full? How much paint is still left in the tank? For capacitive proximity sensors, these are easy questions to answer.
SICK offers an extensive portfolio of magnetic proximity sensors in metric (MM) and rectangular (MQ) configurations. Magnetic proximity sensors provide long sensing ranges that can reliably detect magnetic objects, with entirely new application options opened up due to the smaller magnets. MM sensors in NAMUR design for the use in explosion-hazardous areas complete this comprehensive product family. MQ sensors offer all the advantages of a magnetic proximity sensor in a compact plastic housing.
