Colour detection whatever the object

Colour detection whatever the object Balluff reports that its BFS 33M true-colour sensor can discriminate all shades and colours with high accuracy, regardless of the object type. Even the slightest shades, smallest grey level differences or minimal changes to the surface properties are detected without effort.

The BFS 33M precisely detects an object and switches the corresponding output with lightning speed. Up to seven objects can be signaled on the switching outputs in this way. In addition the L*a*b colour values can also be directly output on a serial interface. Special compensation and individualised calibration means the sensor achieves extremely high accuracy over a long period.

As a true-colour sensor, the BFS 33M precisely detects every colour in the technical colour space, making it suitable for use in a variety of demanding applications including robotics, automated assembly and in the packaging industry. The sensor is always used in conjunction with a fibre-optic cable, so that applications under especially harsh conditions and tight mounting spaces can be handled. Together with an optional lens from Balluff, even ranges of up to 400 mm and beyond are easily within reach.

The high switching frequency of 1.5 kHz makes it possible to monitor even fast processes such as in the printing industry. All the sensor settings can be made and displayed using user-friendly software.
