Sick TiM300 laser scanner

Monday, 25 June, 2012 | Supplied by: SICK Pty Ltd

The TiM300 laser scanner has a range of 2 m and is suitable for applications such as collision prevention and reversing protection on mini-AGVs and mobile platforms or monitoring projections and occupancy on storage and retrieval devices.

The scanner has a compact and robust metal housing, a scanning angle of 270°, integrated teach-in function and four switching outputs. Power consumption is below 4 W.

The device operates with an infrared transmitter light and gives good detection capability, even with black surfaces with just 10% object reflectivity. Suspension monorails can be reliably distanced even in curves, the company claims; the drive paths of autonomous vehicles (as well as the vehicle itself) can also be monitored laterally; and double-depth shelves can be checked for occupancy as well as for any projections.

The TiM300 offers up to 16 triple field sets in the form of signalling, warning and stop fields. They permit vehicles to react to the position and distance of detected objects depending on both the current situation and in advance. Four switching outputs are available for this purpose.

The scanner has pre-parameterised triple sets ex works covering the most common monitoring cases. The SOPAS interface from Sick is claimed to offer comprehensive programming for which the TiM300 has a USB interface. An alignment aid is also available.
