Color Sensors for Color Detection, Sorting & Innovative Automation Tasks


Determination, measurement and detection of colors in industrial applications are complex measurement tasks. Compared to other physical quantities, it is difficult to define color: what exactly is color? State-of-the-art color measurement technology from Micro-Epsilon does not only answer this question but also offers solutions for industrial applications.

In addition to the quality impression, color can be used as an indirect measurement variable and can be used for process control. For example, color sensors are used to monitor the presence of adhesive beading, to sort parts or to determine active ingredients. Color sensors are in most cases the more cost-effective solution as they provide more precision than conventional switching sensors do.
