SICK’s MLG-2 automation light grids detect and measure transparent, small and fast-moving objects even under harsh conditions. A small beam spacing of 5 mm ensures the thinnest objects are detected while a new “Transparent Mode” function provides measurement, location tracking and hole tracking on transparent materials. An aluminum housing with an enclosure rating up to IP 67 makes the MLG-2 resistant to glare and ambient light. In addition, commissioning can be easily completed using the intuitive display or SICK’s SOPAS software tool. These light grids feature two analog outputs, up to three switching outputs and optical synchronization. The MLG-2 Pro — a more advanced variant — includes transparent, high-speed and high-resolution modes, wired synchronization, IO-Link 1.1, and troubleshooting via SOPAS software.
