Measuring automation light grids - Sick

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.
