The expert for high performance measurement

The OD5000 displacement measurement sensor specializes in high-precision measuring tasks, offering solutions in a wide range of applications. With a measuring frequency of up to 80 kHz, the OD5000 also measures quick and rotating measuring objects with µm-precision. The innovative analysis algorithm allows stable measurements with the highest level of repeatability on a wide range of surfaces. What's more, the OD5000 measures the thickness of transparent material with minimal effort with just a sensor head. The Ethernet interface integrated directly in the sensor head ensures quick communication and therefore maximum productivity.

Precision meets quality

With expert-developed intelligent measurement technology which proves its worth in industrial applications time and time again, SICK offers the solution to any challenge which demands maximum measurement accuracy and quality. A pioneering spirit founded on our years of experience and our own innovations in optical sensor technology. We ensure efficient processes while fulfilling the demands of even complex measuring tasks – regardless of surface, diameter, thickness, or width, and regardless of whether an object is to be positioned or measured. This is how we ensure that your products are every bit as perfect as you want them to be. Moreover, SICK’s measurement technology supports quality assurance processes and delivers cost-saving benefits. Have a look on www.sick.com/measurement-sensors

A point of light is projected onto the measuring object. The light reflected is captured by a light-sensitive receiver at a specific angle. Based on the angle between the send and receive direction, the position of the object is then triangulated (from the Latin “triangulum” = triangle).

Simple and cost-effective solution with Ethernet interface directly in the sensor head

Thanks to the Ethernet interface installed in the sensor head, quick and direct communication is possible via TCP/IP and UPD/IP protocols. The integration of an external amplifier or evaluation unit is not necessary. However, the OD5000 can be connected to the AOD1 evaluation unit as an option to make thickness measurements with two sensor heads.

SICK LifeTime Services

SICK’s services increase machine and plant productivity, enhance the safety of people all over the world, provide a solid foundation for a sustainable business operation, and protect investment goods. In addition to its usual consulting services, SICK provides direct on-site support during the conceptual design and commissioning phases as well as during operation.

The range of services not only covers aspects like maintenance and inspection, but also includes performance checks as well as upgrades and retrofits. Modular or customized service contracts extend the service life of plants and therefore increase their availability. If faults occur or limit values are exceeded, these are detected at all times by the corresponding sensors and systems.

Consulting and design Application-specific advice on the product, its integration and the application itself.
Commissioning and maintenance Application-optimized and sustainable ─ thanks to professional commissioning and maintenance by a trained SICK service technician.
Service contracts Extended warranty, SICK Remote Service, 24-hour helpdesk, maintenance, availability guarantees and other modular components can be individually combined on request.
