Product Details Supplier Info More products

Micro-Epsilon has launched a range of colour recognition sensors designed to enable companies to select, monitor, grade and sort various types of coloured objects involved in manufacturing, automated handling, warehousing, packaging, wrapping and other production processes.

According to the company, the Colorsensor series provides up to 20 times higher resolution than conventional colour recognition sensors and offers more stable colour measurements, even on shiny or reflective surfaces.

The sensors — which are suitable for applications in sectors such as automotive, cosmetics, medical, food and beverage, agricultural and security — are also able to recognise small variations in colour along a target object or material, for example, in the production of leather goods, wood veneers and vehicle interiors.

The range includes the Colorsensor LT sensor, which is connected to an optical fibre that is guided to the measurement targeted; colour detection therefore takes place very close to the object, reducing any environmental effects that could adversely affect measurement reliability.

The Colorsensor LT series includes options ranging from low-cost entry-level sensors through to high-precision multi-channel colour recognition systems.

Key features

  • Measuring distances from 2mm to 100mm
  • 255 colour memory locations
  • 2,000 types of fibre-optic cable
  • Large number of lenses
  • RS232 or USB digital interfaces
  • LED light sources

With over 45 years experience and more than 15,000 customers worldwide, Micro-Epsilon understands the need for accurate, robust, intelligent sensors and measurement systems.

If you are measuring any type of displacement / position, temperature, speed or colour parameters, Micro-Epsilon sensors and systems provide market-leading performance, together with the fastest measuring rates, highest operating temperature ranges and smart interface capabilities. From simple, low cost sensors to high volume, customer-specific OEM solutions, Micro-Epsilon will have athe correct measurement solution for your application.

Using both contact and non-contact measurement techniques, Micro-Epsilon boasts one of the largest ranges of displacement sensors including 1D, 2D & 3D laser optical, confocal chromatic, eddy current, capacitive, inductive, draw-wire and time-of-flight technologies. Measuring ranges are from nanometers to kilometers!

For temperature measurement, there is a comprehensive range of non-contact infrared temperature sensors and thermal imaging cameras capable of measuring up to that include intelligent software packages to support configuration, analysis and management during the application. LED analysers, fibre optic sensors and Colour recognition sensors measure true colour using L*A*B and CIE.

Micro-Epsilon sensors are used throughout almost all industries: from automotive to aerospace, motorsport to metal production, semiconductor to subsea. Whether it’s an R&D, test, inspection, OEM or a process control application, Micro Epsilon measurement engineers can provide the right measurement solution.
