G10 Photoelectric Sensor Can Be Mounted and Aligned in Seconds

The G10 is a cost-effective sensor that can be mounted and aligned in less than 10 seconds, drastically reducing commissioning and installation time.

SICK, one of the worlds leading manufacturers of sensors, safety systems, machine vision, encoders and automatic identification solutions for factory and logistics automation, today announced the launch of the G10 photoelectric sensor with Q-Lock mounting. The G10 is a cost-effective sensor that can be mounted and aligned in less than 10 seconds, drastically reducing commissioning and installation time.


The G10 incorporates precise PinPoint LED technology to ensure simple alignment and reliable object detection at sensing distances up to 1,200 mm with background suppression. Since no reflector is required, installation time is reduced. An easy-to-use potentiometer and bright 360° indicator LEDs ensure easy adjustment and status monitoring. In addition, universal DC and AC/DC power supplies provide even greater application flexibility.

The G10 is a complete product family that features a wide range of cables, reflectors and mounting accessories. It provides reliable detection regardless of dust, dirt, humidity and extreme temperatures, making it ideal for a variety of logistics and machine building applications.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
