FILED IN:  Controls  > Sensors

The high resolution results in a minimum detectable object size of just 2 mm. HLG light grids are through-beam style switching light grids, providing a fast and reliable switching output any time one of the beams is blocked. Features of the self-sufficient HLG include no external controller box, rugged aluminum housing, cable synchronization for quick and easy setup, and teach-in automatic sensitivity adjustment for detection of translucent objects and wrappings.
