Your Benefits

  • High measurement accuracy for detecting even very small objects reliably
  • Transparent mode function for reliably detecting and measuring transparent objects
  • The high-speed scan offers short response times for safely detecting objects traveling at high speeds
  • The SOPAS ET configuration software with menu-driven wizard for quick configuration
  • Ambient light immunity enables greater reliability
  • Integrated interfaces and matching function blocks reduce the time and effort involved in the commissioning process
  • Simple maintenance without the need for specialist staff thanks to the cloning function with IO-Link



With the MLG-2 measuring automation light grid, SICK is offering the right solution for a wide range of applications in logistics and factory automation. The MLG-2 Prime, MLG-2 Pro and MLG-2 ProNet device variants are used in challenging applications with transparent objects and high object speeds, to name a couple of examples. With a resolution of up to 1.25 mm, the new “cross beam measurement” function and the “transparent” mode, the MLG-2 masters measuring task with high precision. The pre-installed solutions in the SOPAS ET configuration software allow even complex applications, such as object width measurement, to be parameterized with ease. The MLG-2 Pro and MLG-2 ProNet feature common industrial interfaces such as the RS845 or Ethernet interfaces.
