    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.

    At a glance
    • Beam separation: 2.5 mm, 5 mm, 10 mm, 20 mm, 25 mm, 30 mm, 50 mm
    • Operating range: 12 m
    • Functions: Cross beam measurement, 4 x zone measurement, high-speed scan, transparent mode
    • Interfaces: PNP, analog, RS485, IO-Link, PROFINET, PROFIBUS, EtherCAT®, EtherNet/IPTM, CANopen
    • Sun resistance mode with reliable switching threshold

    Advantages

    Flexible in use for length, width and height measurements

    MLG-2 measuring automation light grids from SICK are ideal for complex requirements. The sensors are modular and enable customers to select between different detection heights and beam separations. 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. The maximum height and overhang can be measured at the same time during pallet verification. The measurement data is transmitted to the programmable logic controller (PLC) using bus systems.
    The high-speed scan function offers short response times for safely detecting objects traveling at high speeds
    Length, wide and height measurement for countless applications
    Integrated functions which can be output via modern Ethernet interface

    The MLG-2 reliably identifies the length, width and height of objects, regardless of their composition, from transparent to black objects. Raw data and measurement results are output via modern interfaces.
