CIMTEC Automation is a Summit distributor partner of SICK, the world ‘s leading manufacturer of optical safety devices. SICK is now introducing a completely new generation of light curtains – the deTec4 Core. Ideal for the protection of hazardous areas, entrances, and hazardous points, the deTec4 can be used in any type of setting thanks to its slim profile and small resolution between beams. The resolution can be set small enough to detect a hand or even one finger, allowing the system to respond quickly when the sensor is tripped.


Day for day, the deTec4 Core safety light curtain ensures safety of personnel and productivity of machines and systems in a cost-effective manner for many industries. For example, machines for processing work pieces of all dimensions.

With the NFC technology, you have entirely new options for on-site diagnosis using a smartphone. IO-Link also makes it possible to read out diagnostic data continuously regardless of your location. The data acquired in this way can then be used for subsequent process steps, for example, taking height measurements and using a safety function at the same time. Easy configuration, completely without software, also saves time and money.


SICK has provided deTec kits to ease the ordering process and the management of part numbers for a complete solution.
