The G2 Flat is a miniature photoelectric sensor for use in particularly compact plants and robotics systems. With powerful background suppression (BGS), the sensor can be relied upon to detect objects at distances starting from just 8 mm – virtually regardless of object size and surface. This makes it an excellent solution for all kinds of tasks wherever space is at a premium and opens up entirely new possibilities for miniaturization in industrial environments. Sensor integration and handling could not be easier. As one of the smallest photoelectric sensor product families from SICK, the G2 Flat is the smart application solution in a miniature format for industrial automation.

Very high performance for miniature plants
The miniature housing of the G2 Flat is enabling new and even more compact designs to be developed without compromising on high-performance detection. The sensor can be integrated into very narrow gaps and tight installation spaces without problems. As such, it is opening up virtually endless possibilities for reliable object detection in applications involving the conveying of small parts in logistics.
Nearly limitless machine design: The G2 Flat is opening up entirely new possibilities for the design of miniature plants and robotics systems. The sensor is flexible and can be adapted to meet individual OEM requirements.
Sophistication through simplicity
SICK developed the G2 Flat to make it easy and straightforward to use miniature sensors in compact machine and plant configurations. The sensors are flexible to mount and easy to install as through-beam photoelectric sensors in close proximity to one other. Thanks to type-dependent sensing ranges, they are also highly versatile in application. Thanks to their rugged design, the sensors require little maintenance, enjoy a long service life, and will deliver reliable detection results in long-term operation.
Tough yet easy to handle
Flexible in application: Thanks to its rugged design and countless application possibilities, the G2 Flat is suitable for all kinds of application environments
