Introducing the microScan3 Core - the first step into a new safety laser scanner platform from SICK. The microScan3 Core is designed with an advanced, patented scan technology - safeHDDM - which improves the accuracy of the scan data and allows better filtration of nuisances such as dust, ambient light and cross talk. Within a small footprint, the mS3 is capable of up to a 5.5 m protective field and 275˚ scan angle giving it the best size-to-area ratio in the industry. A new configuration software, Safety Designer, is used to configure the mS3 Core. This software will make the setup process easier and simplify configuration of safety fields with new, innovative draw tools.
