Configure measurement tasks with ease via the display

The continued systematic development in the field of measuring automation light grid: With the MLG-2 product family, SICK always offers the perfect solution for a variety of applications in the logistics automation and machine building industries. Simple configuration and diagnostics via a clearly arranged display: The MLG-2 Prime is suitable for all standard applications, including protrusion monitoring as well as object height and width measuring. Optical synchronization eliminates the need for wiring between the sender and receiver. The connection to the controls is established via push-pull switching outputs or analog outputs. Data can be output directly via the IO-Link interface with accompanying functional modules. The MLG-2 Prime is particularly suitable for measuring the height and width of objects. The new "object re-detection" function saves time and resources. The MLG-2 Prime can be ordered in a pre-configured version.
