As the degree of automation of a plant or machine grows, so too does the amount of cabling required – and therefore also the work involved in planning, installation, commissioning, and maintenance. But not with the MLG-2 ProNet from SICK. It offers all the advantages of a measuring automation light grid and now features integrated interfaces such as PROFINET, EtherCAT®, EtherNet/IPTM, CANopen and PROFIBUS. Thanks to corresponding function blocks, commissioning is quick and simple. Solutions are preinstalled in the SOPAS configuration software. This allows for even complex applications, such as object width measurement, to be configured with ease. It is also possible to change the format automatically via fieldbus.
