SICK, Inc: Light grid sensors
Sick has introduced the MLG and ELG lines of light grid sensors. They have five different beam spacing options, more than 20 detection heights, and 10 different output configurations.
The versatile MLG and ELG can be used for handling items on conveyors for order fulfillment or in other packaging applications. The light grids come in standard and programmable models. Standard models perform like a typical through-beam sensor and provide an output if any of the beams are interrupted. Programmable models are more flexible in application due to their ability to detect interpret and give outputs based on which beams are interrupted.
