The Frame Light Grids (FLG) by SICK detect and count parts as small as 4 mm and feature closed- and open-side designs on applications that require counting parts on conveyors and machines. Courtesy: SICKSick Frame Light Grids (FLG) are designed to detect and count parts as small as 4 mm in size. With the sender and receiver installed in one frame, the FLG reduces downtime due to its simple adjustment and alignment. Adjustable sensitivity, dynamic and static operating modes, and pulse lengthening features provide additional application flexibility. The FLG is enclosed in a rugged metal housing and includes an adjustable pushbutton lock that protects against unwanted parameter adjustments during operation.

The FLG features both closed- and open-side designs for applications that require counting small parts on conveyors, ensuring parts are ejected from stamping or presses, detecting feeder parts on machines, or pick-to-light part selection. The FLG can be used in consumer goods, food and beverage, machine building and automotive markets.
