    Overview

    Flexible in use for length, width and height measurements

    With the MLG-2 measuring automation light grid, SICK is offering the right solution for a wide range of applications in logistics and factory automation. The MLG-2 Prime, MLG-2 Pro and MLG-2 ProNet device variants are used in challenging applications with transparent objects and high object speeds, to name a couple of examples. With a resolution of up to 1.25 mm, the new “cross beam measurement” function and the “transparent” mode, the MLG-2 masters measuring task with high precision. The pre-installed solutions in the SOPAS ET configuration software allow even complex applications, such as object width measurement, to be parameterized with ease. The MLG-2 Pro and MLG-2 ProNet feature common industrial interfaces such as the RS845 or Ethernet interfaces.

    MLG-2

    Flexible in use for length, width and height measurements

    MLG-2 measuring automation light grids from SICK offer the right solution for a wide variety of applications in logistics and factory automation. The MLG-2 units are used to monitor the material flow in conveyor belts, in automated storage and retrieval systems, in order processing and many other areas. For example, the light grid simultaneously determines the maximum height and overhang when measuring pallets. The sensors are modular and enable customers to select between different detection heights and beam separations. A clear display ensures easy configuration and diagnostics. Optical synchronization eliminates the need for wiring between the sender and receiver. SICK also offers a wide range of different types and interfaces.

    The MLG-2 reliably determines the length, width and height of objects. A wide range of applications can be reliably solved thanks to the modular sensor design and the broad product portfolio.

    MLG-2 Prime

    MLG-2 Prime for standard applications

    The MLG-2 Prime is suitable for all standard applications, including protrusion monitoring or object height and width measurement. Connection to the control is established via push-pull switching outputs or analog outputs. Data can be output directly via the IO-Link interface and the associated function blocks. The new "object re-detection" function saves time and resources. The MLG-2 Prime can be ordered in a pre-configured version.

    Determining the position of the baggage cart in the robot cell
    Switching from lengthwise to transverse transport
    Protrusion monitoring of pallets

    The MLG-2 Prime solves your standard applications with high measurement accuracy and is quick and easy to configure.

    MLG-2 Pro

    MLG-2 Pro for demanding applications

    The light grids of the MLG-2 Pro variant are used in demanding applications to detect transparent objects and at high object speeds. With functions such as “Transparent mode,” “High-speed scan,” or “High measurement accuracy,” the MLG-2 Pro performs challenging measuring tasks with the utmost precision. The pre-installed solutions in the SOPAS configuration software allow even complex applications to be configured with ease. The MLG-2 Pro uses conventional industrial interfaces so that even individualized solutions can be programmed via the control.

    “High-speed scan” function offers short response times for safe detection at high object speeds.

    The “Sun and dust” mode allows the MLG-2 to operate trouble-free, even in harsh environments.

    “Transparent mode” function for reliably detecting and measuring transparent materials.

    The MLG-2 Pro masters even complex tasks in demanding environments. Resistant to ambient light as well as dust and thanks to various operating modes, the light grid is ideally equipped for your tasks.

    MLG-2 ProNet

    MLG-2 ProNet: Easy integration

    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.

    Easy parameterization via SOPAS.

    PROFINET, EtherCAT®, EtherNet/IPTM, CANopen and PROFIBUS

    The MLG-2 ProNet is optimally equipped for your interface: Matching function blocks reduce the time and effort involved in the commissioning process.
