This product family will be phased out soon
Extended possibilities

Your Benefits

  • MLG light grids are robust, resistant and powerful
  • Light grid status information to avoid interrupting operation
  • Customer-oriented solution based on modular beam separations improves operational safety
  • Integrated PROFIBUS, CANopen bus systems, analog outputs, and RS-485 interfaces reduce cabling time and costs
  • A fully modular system guarantees the optimum solution for the customer
  • With the MLG, the system integrator can offer a solution with the end customer in mind
  • Robust metal housing can cope with harsh environments and reduces downtime
  • Integrated software program minimizes mounting work, since no additional connection box is required

Overview

Extended possibilities

The MLG automation light grid family is ideal for applications involving measurement, such as variable height measurement or classifying objects. The
MLG offers many different configuration options and interfaces. It is available in different monitoring heights and beam spacing options. The MLG can
be pre-programmed by SICK to meet customer needs or come with standard settings.

At a glance
  • User-programmable and factory-preset versions available
  • Sensing range up to 8.5 m
  • Monitoring heights of over 3 m and up to 240 beams possible
  • Resolutions of 10 / 20 / 30 / 50 mm and customer-specific resolutions possible
  • External teach-in for optimal sensitivity settings
  • Short response time < 3 ms
  • Up to 6 PNP or NPN switching outputs and two switching inputs
  • PROFIBUS, CANopen, analog outputs, RS-485
