The LGM Series measuring light grid is the latest member in the Pepperl+Fuchs family of automation light grids. It features 16 predefined measuring options that are integrated into the unit. Users can select the optimum mode for their application from the evaluation methods and receive direct measured values in millimeters, such as the object height, lowest or highest object position, sum, average, etc. The values are digitally transmitted at fast cycle times, even with beam crossover activated, using IO-Link, which enables convenient commissioning and maintenance from the control level. Parameterization and configuration are completed via a PC-no external programmer, no additional software.
The light grids have an ultra-low profile to fit into tight spaces. Tool-free mounting accessories make installation, alignment, and replacement fast and easy. The IP67 aluminum housing withstands harsh environmental conditions even at cold-storage temperatures. The light grid is available with various resolutions and field heights up to 3200 mm, permitting large measuring ranges.
