Advanced automation light grids Interfaces/bus functionality Cross beam function 50% Interfaces integrated in each device mean there is no need for any additional hardware. Addressing of each bus-compatible MLG is via a separate address. Due to the cross beam function, the resolution of the light grids can be increased even further. The resolution in the central area between sender and receiver is twice as high. This ­ nables even small objects to be reliably detected. e Basic software functions MLG setup software comes with multitude of pre-programmed basic functions e.g., “Last Beam...

Advanced automation light grids Modular light grids (MLG) are used in various logistics areas. Particularly in automatic warehousing systems, checking for projections with height measurement is essential. In mail distribution centers, they determine the position of p ­ arcels on the conveyor and transfer the data to a PLC via bus systems. With their integrated basic functions, they enable dynamic warehousing systems to optimize workflow and space. MLG automation light grids are used at turnstiles in airports to ensure no unauthorized persons e ­ nter secure airport areas or exit the...

Advanced automation light grids Diameter detection The XLG advanced automation light grid d ­ etects log diameter so that the log is c ­ entered in the bark stripper. Log measurement XLG advanced automation light grids are used to measure the length and diameter of logs. Using the acquired data, any large roots on the log are detected and the log is then fed via the b ­ ypass to a butt reducer. Key tasks for toll systems are the fast separation of vehicles and their unique classification. The XLG’s absolute i ­mmunity to infrared light and sunlight, the optional heated protective housing...

Advanced automation light grids Product description The MLG Standard offers a high level of switching flexibility in applications. The standard models perform like a typical through-beam photoelectric sensor and provide an output if any of the beams is interrupted. They offer fast response time and are highly modular. A range of different resolutions and detection heights are available. In addition, the MLG Standard automation light grid offers a wide spectrum of application options and excellent durability. •• Detection heights of over 3 m and up outputs •• Resolutions of 10 / 20 / 30 / 50...
