LMS123-10000 Security

The sick laserscanners or LIDAR detectors are used in diverse ways: vertically as “curtain detectors” for protecting pictures and walls or horizontally as “penetration  detectors” for protecting ceilings and floors. The benefits of the SICK LMS123 include easy and almost invisible installation and the ability to protect only those areas which actually require protection. This means that visitors can view important information relating to the cycle of paintings from a close-up perspective. Moreover, cleaning measures and other work can be carried out without the need for deactivating the protection system for the artwork.
