MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 24, 2010 – Sick Inc. has launched the SLG line of slim nonsafety through-beam light grids. Using only 8 mm of space for the optics, the devices can be hidden inside machines, frames, doors and other places where space and aesthetics are important. The compact light grids have a simple configuration interface and are used to detect an object as it moves through an area.

The SLG line is organized into three groups: the SGS models are for large areas, such as doors and gates; the SAS types are for smaller area coverage on machines and on more advanced configurations; and the SPL versions are for pick-to-light applications with automatic teach-in and job LEDs.

The sensors feature one-touch setup and can be configured and adjusted without a PC. Users can also detect small objects when the cross beam function is enabled to increase resolution to 25 mm.

The sleek and slender design saves space and creates more work area. In addition, out-of-the way installation can prevent intentional and accidental damage. The sensors are designed with cost savings in mind, offering simple “break-a-beam, get-an-output” functionality.

Typical applications include 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, buses and trains.
