There’s a new smart colour sensor from SensoPart Industriesensorik (Gottenheim, Germany).
Called the FT 55-CM, it’s said to be ideal for diverse color detection and sorting applications.
The sensor can distinguish up to twelve colors, and it’s this extensive operating range and flexible color detection function, that enables a multitude of applications. For example, the differentiation of differences in color on automotive fuses, or the identification and assignment of bottle tops, or color labels in the packaging and beverage industry.
The large integrated LCD display and remote configuration via SensoVisual, and IO-Link, is aimed at setting new standards in ease of use and connectivity. The FT 55-CM is available in three different operating ranges (12-32 mm, 18-22 mm or 30-150 mm).
The color setting options are also flexible, with two operating modes: color detection and color assignment (Best Fit).
