Dynamic height measurement in materials handling systems

The MLG-2 automation light grid precisely measures the height of a wide range of objects. This is particularly important in the case of height-optimized storage, where the MLG-2 easily copes with transparent or film-wrapped objects. At an operating temperature of as low as –30°C, the automation light grid is also suitable for use in cold storage units, and the innovative mounting of the MLG-2 minimizes installation costs. Because of its reflection safety, high resolution, and fast data output, the automation light grid is also recommended for vertical storage applications.
