SICK’s 2D LiDAR Sensor Keeps it Simple

When a single-field laser scanner is all that is needed, SICK’s TiM100 2D LiDAR Sensor offers users a budget level solution with high-resolution performance for reliable security protection of valuable artefacts in museum and galleries.

With a 200° field of view, and the ability to be mounted and aligned to the object needing protection, the TiM100 offers unobtrusive, compact laser scanning for non-contact security of paintings or artefacts without the need for physical barriers.

Part of SICK’s wide range of TiM and LMS laser scanning solutions for industrial, building and internal security applications, the TiM100 is the ideal choice when a simple, compact and low-cost device is all that’s required.

The TiM100 has a monitoring range of up to 3 metres and a maximum 15.7 square metre scanning area. With the benefits of IO-Link interface, it is quick and easy set up. Teach-in can be performed by digital input, or via a PC, and all parameters can be stored for downloading to another device or replacement if required

With SICK’s innovative HDDM+ technology built in, the sensor is able to deliver time-of-flight scanning with consistently stable results which are not affected by the presence of dirt, dust, moisture or ambient light.

Says Neil Sandhu, SICK’s National Product Manager for Imaging, Measurement and Ranging: “When a compact, simple detection device is the most appropriate and affordable solution, the TiM100 is straightforward to set up and configure.

“With simple teach-in and IO-Link capability, the TiM100’s parameters can be easily cloned to provide ‘plug and play’ set-up when a sensor needs to be replaced.”

The TiM100 is the economy option within the TIM series of LIDAR detection and ranging devices, which are installed all over the world. Backed by this experience, SICK’s field evaluation algorithms integrated in the TiM100 ensure excellent reliability and consistency of detection.

The 100mm high by 60mm wide TiM100 device weighs only 90g, so is suitable for many applications where conventional laser scanning detection devices are too large or too conspicuous. Installation is quick and low-cost with a click-in mount and, with a 2.2W power offtake, running costs are low.
