Sick’s TiM310 field detection laser scanner for anti-collision and presence detection is enclosed in a compact aluminum housing with an IP 65 enclosure rating. It is approximately the size of a baseball and weighs about a third of a pound. It features a 270° scanning range that is suitable for simple, discrete I/O and field detection applications in the robotics, logistics and building automation industries. Its small size, 3W power consumption and large detection range make it particularly suitable for small vehicles. With 16 preconfigured fields, the TiM310 can be configured in less than five minutes, which reduces installation time and costs. A “Touch and Teach” button further simplifies setup since no manual computer settings are required.
