Switching automation light grids - SICK

Switching light grids from SICK for a variety of applications.

Switching light grids from SICK are equipped with various technologies and can be used in a variety of applications: the detection and counting of irregular objects, presence and protrusion monitoring, and all this in very different installation situations or environmental conditions. Whether the application requires small beam separations, high ambient light immunity, large ranges, varying monitoring heights or very thin housing dimensions, the switching light grids will meet your requirements.
