Elite SICK Partner

Get a sense for SICK's smart sensor portfolio to start generating and recieving data that goes far beyond traditional switching signals or measured process parameters.

As an Elite partner, Underwoods have a series of product champions that can utilise SICK's diverse sensor portfolio to solve just about any of your sensing, automation safety or industrial identification needs. 

Getting a Sense for Automation

SICK are the market leader of sensor and sensor solutions for industrial applications from factory automation to process control solutions and logistics applications.

SICK's diverse sensor portfolio can help you with monitoring and controlling your processess securely and efficiently, protecting your personnel from accidents or preventing damage to the environment, all the while improving quality, speed and precision in all lines of industry.


Sensors built for the future

Industrial automation is changing at an extremely rapid pace as the degree of digitisation, intelligence, and networking is set to continually increase in production and logistics systems. As a market leader for the development of cutting-edge sensor technology, SICK offer solutions today that are ready for the challenges of the future with intelligent sensors that collect data, evaluate it in real time, adapt to their environment, and communicate this in the network.

'Sensor Intelligence' refers to the ability of SICK's sensor portfolio to use decentralised computing power to complete tasks more reliably, more comprehensively, or more efficiently. SICK's smart sensor solutions already support dynamic, real-time-optimised, and self-organised industry processes as they record real operational statuses, convert these into digital data, and share them automatically with your process controller. 

In the factories of the future, cyber-physical production systems will organise themselves, using huge amounts of real-time information collected by smart sensors to autonomously optimise themselves. 

Efficient Communication

With superordinate control systems, Smart Sensors communicate via IO-Link: the stable communication channel which is used across the globe for sensors and actuators at the lowest field level offers many practical advantages in day-to-day industrial operation. 

Flexi Compact - New Safety Controller

The new Flexi Compact fro SICK is a compact, software-programmable safety controller that is based on a future-proof technology platform. 

Thanks to its modularity, it can be optimally configured for a wide range of application requirements and diagnostics data can be transmitted too the cloud via common fieldbus systems. 

Faster production startup, increased machine availability, and extended functions such as safe series connection with Flexi Loop increase productivity and efficiency throughout the entire machine life cycle.

SMART Sensors

Networked production and control processes in complex machine environments determine the future of manufacturing. The foundation for dynamic, real-time-optimisation, and the self-organising of industrial processes is information gathering and the further processing of that information. As providers of data, sensors are essential for Smart Factories. 

Therefore, Sensor technology from SICK is the prerequisite for the successful implementation of Industry 4.0. With sensor intellgence from SICK, every sensor, every machine, and every human involved can communicate with and among one another at any time.
