Sick TranspaTect - transparent objects without a reflector

The Sick TranspaTect photoelectric sensors provides complete transparency detection without reflectors.

The TranspaTect detects transparent and semi-transparent objects as well as glossy, mirrored, or uneven surfaces reliably. Using the very latest SICK technologies, TranspaTect can detect trays and bottles without using reflectors, as existing machine parts such as panels or walls perform this role instead.

Your Benefits

  • Reliable detection of transparent and semitransparent objects without a reflector
  • Reliable detection of objects regardless of color or surface qualities
  • Freedom of machine design: no mounting system for the installation of a reflector required
  • Quick commissioning: there is no need to mount a reflector or precisely adjust the sensor
  • High operational safety: if the background becomes contaminated, object detection will continue uninterrupted
  • Machine downtime is minimized: the integrated AutoAdapt function extends the time between cleanings
  • Heightened productivity: mechanical and chemical ruggedness due to the metal housing
