SICK’s automation light grids can be used in a number of these solutions, such as detecting and counting irregularly shaped objects, people and vehicles, and checking for presence and pallet overhang detection.
The tasks are so versatile that one light grid cannot fulfill the requirements of every application. Light grids from SICK offer multiple ranges, heights, sizes, orientations, and resolutions which simplify integration through high flexibility and performance.
Measuring automation light grids are ideal for more complex applications. They come in several different beam separation options, a range of detection heights and output configurations. These light grids can be used for material handling on conveyors, automated storage and retrieval system applications, order fulfilment, and more. For example, in pallet verification applications, maximum height and pallet overhang can be measured. This data can be forwarded to the PLC via bus systems.
Resolutions of 10 / 20 / 30 / 50 mm and customer-specific resolutions
External teach-in for optimal sensitivity settings
Short response time < 3 ms
Up to 6 PNP/ NPN switching outputs and two switching inputs
