Color recognition sensor

PD12 fiber-optic-based "true color" recognition sensor includes a microprocessor-controlled amplifier that uses a complex algorithm to store and analyze up to four colors. With a teach-in process, the unit employs an RGB (red, green, blue) principle to accurately measure color and distinguish between subtle shades of similar colors.

PD12 fiber-optic-based “true color” recognition sensor includes a microprocessor-controlled amplifier that uses a complex algorithm to store and analyze up to four colors. With a teach-in process, the unit employs an RGB (red, green, blue) principle to accurately measure color and distinguish between subtle shades of similar colors. Up to four colors can be stored in the amplifier’s memory. Each color has an independent output with a built-in timer that allows for delays up to 5 s. One-channel and four-channel amplifiers are available. Sensing ranges are from 2 to 60 mm, depending on fiber selected. Each sensor comes with one meter of cable. www.gavazzionline.com Carlo Gavazzi Inc.
