SICK, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of sensors, safety systems, machine vision, and automatic identification products for factory and logistics automation, today announced the launch of its new SLG family of non-safety, through-beam light grids.
The SLG is the slimmest light grid on the market. Using only 8 mm of space for the optics, the SLG can be hidden inside machines, frames, doors, and other places where space and aesthetics are desired. In addition to its small size and simple configuration interface, the SLG is also the lowest-cost solution for detecting an object as it moves through an area.
Typical applications are pallet jut-out or overhang detection on conveyer belts, opening doors for door and gate access control in factories and distribution centers, part ejection detection in wood and metal fabrication, and door control on mass transit, such as subways, busses and trains.
