Automation Light Grids

Sick Sensor Intelligence - Automation Light Grids

Sick Automation Light Grids, detect measure, inspect or count objects in two dimensions are typical tasks for special sensors (automation light grids).

Whether it is detecting letters, small parts, packages, persons or pallets, a complete light grid from Sick can correctly identify target objects for any machine integration demands.

Sick Advanced Automation Light Grids

Sick Advanced Automation Light Grids are ideal for more complex applications. Sick light grids can be used for material handling on conveyors, automated storage and retrieval system applications, order fulfilment and more. These Sick Light Grids come in several different beam separation options in a range of detection heights and output configurations.

MLG Standard

Sick MLG Light GridFor switching Applications

  • Up to 3 x PNP or NPN switching outputs
  • Resolutions of 10 / 20 / 30 / 50 mm and customer-specific resolutions
  • Working range up to 8.5 m
  • Detection heights of over 3 m and up to 240 beams possible
  • Short response time < 3 ms
  • Automatic teach during power on

Sick Standard Automation Light Grids

Sick Standard Automation Light Grids can be used in a number of solutions, such as detecting and counting or irregular shaped objects, checking for presence and overhand of pallet loads. Sick Light Grids offer multiple ranges, heights, sizes, orientations and resolutions. All processing of light grids is integrated for fast setup with no external controller needed.


Sick WLG Light Grid Versatile, compact, reflex light grid

  • The direct output of individual beams for measuring and switching
  • Response time 0.6 ms
  • Eight visible transmission LEDs
  • Eight PNP switching outputs and one alarm output
  • Sensitivity can be set via a potentiometer
  • Polarizing filter for reflective surfaces

Sick Smart Light Grids

Sick Smart Light Grid includes smart are sensors, smart gate sensors and smart pick-to-light-grids. At only 8mm x 25mm, these Sick Sensors fit nearly anywhere and can be imbedded inside walls, doors, conveyors and machines. These Sick Light Grids can be ordered in 120 to 1,400mm lengths in a plastic or aluminum housing. Auto muting, auto teach and an alignment aid provide more uptime. Sick Smart Light Grids are ideal for order picking, automatic doors, counting objects and other applications.


Sick SAS Light GridBetter machine control in a small housing

  • Variable detection lengths from 120 mm up to 600 mm (in 160 mm increments)
  • Set parameters via teach-in with no PC
  • Simple teach-in setup
  • Maximum range 4 m
  • Response time 18 ms
  • 25 mm resolution with 40 mm beam separation possible
  • Highly immune to sunlight up to 150,000 lx
  • Small blind zone < 11 mm
