Colour recognition sensors, FES series
With over 1,000 of these colour sensors in the field they have proven to be very popular and reliable over the years. You can store between 1 and 4 colours with the ‘teach in’ function, the response time can be as little as 400us and the sensing range up to 80mm. The halogen light source allows for a massive colour spectrum and provides high performance, the object size can be as little as 1mm and the unit comes ina robust industrial package.
If you need to detect over longer distances, or if the colour you want to detect is very dark then you may need an FEL M 30 light source. This comes in a separate housing and works with the FES series of colour sensors.
