SICK Announces Launch of DeltaPac MultiTask Photoelectric Sensor which Eliminates Product Gaps on Conveyor Lines

SICK, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of sensors, safety systems, machine vision, encoders and automatic identification solutions for factory and logistics automation, has announced the launch of the DeltaPac MultiTask photoelectric sensor.

Improved production efficiency and reduced costs due to patented technology

This sensor precisely counts, detects and differentiates between successive packaging items on conveyor belts.

The IP 67-rated DeltaPac, which doesn’t require any backing up, buffering or mechanical product separation, optimizes product flow and reduces the amount of hardware in packaging applications.

This small, energy-efficient solution improves quality and reduces downtime and product damage caused by collisions.

The DeltaPac features patented Delta-S-Technology®, which uses four PinPoint 2.0 LEDs and two receivers with SICK-specific SIRIC® ASIC technology.

This technology enables the DeltaPac to seamlessly detect corners, folds and grooves regardless of object color, size, surface or background.

The DeltaPac is a pre-configured sensor that uses SICK’s flexible SOPAS-ET configuration software for easy installation, operation and customization.

With a sensing range from 30 to 40 mm to the front edge of the object, the DeltaPac is able to detect up to 200,000 packages per hour.

It can be used for controlling packaging, triggering downstream processes and ensuring package quality.
