Overview

Maximum performance in terms of response time, resolution, and object detection

The continued systematic development in the field of measuring automation light grids: 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. The MLG-2 Pro variant is used in challenging applications involving transparent objects and high detection speeds. With new functions such as “Transparent mode,” “High-speed scan,” or “High measurement accuracy,” the MLG-2 Pro performs new measurement tasks with the utmost precision. The pre-installed solutions in the SOPAS configuration software allow complex applications, such as object width measurement, to be configured with ease. The MLG-2 Pro uses conventional industrial interfaces so that individual solutions can be programmed via the controls.
