Product description:

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 ProNet device is using 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.
