Bright ideas for measuring!

IO-Link Provides Measurement Output Data in Millimeters

The days of complex single-beam evaluations for standard tasks and cumbersome configuration are over. The new LGM Series measuring light grid is the latest member in the Pepperl+Fuchs family of automation light grids.

values directly in millimeters

"What makes this product stand head and shoulders above other measuring light grids on the market are the 16 predefined measuring options that are integrated into the unit," says Carsten Roth, Product Manager. "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 extremely 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 LGM light grids have an ultra-low profile to fit into tight spaces. Innovative, 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 LGM is available with various resolutions and field heights up to 3200 mm, permitting large measuring ranges.

"Unlike complex products with single-beam output that evaluate each beam," says Roth, "these measuring light grids provide measured values in millimeters without time-consuming calculations and set new standards with their compact design, functionality, and unique price/performance ratio."
