The system can be used to measure liquids, at high or low temperatures, electro static environments, etc.. Places other colour sensors won’t last.

Various digital in- and outputs and ethernet make it easy to connect the system to external hardware like a plc or pc.

The sensors modular setup provides solutions for a wide range of applications. sensor

  • Optimisation of distance from substrate and area of measurement.
  • Adjustment of measurement angle to accommodate gloss and texture.
  • Fibre optic modules for transmission measurement of transparent, semi transparent and liquid materials.
  • The X5 can be controlled stand alone by the membrane keyboard on the sensor itself.
  • Multiple sensors can be linked and controlled from one central PC by use of ethernet, allowing inspections at various positions in the process.
