The sturdy light grid for many standard applications

SICK offers the versatile ELG, an extremely tough switching automation light grid with different monitoring heights and beam separations. The ELG is not sensitive to glare caused by sunlight and flashing light. Typical applications are in logistics for checking for projections on pallets and counting boxes and small parts. In addition, the ELG is used for vehicle separation at tollbooths. The ELG is available with up to 128 beams and with a minimum beam resolution of 10 mm.
