Micro-Epsilon colour recognition sensors Micro-Epsilon says it has launched a new range of colour recognition sensors designed for high precision true colour measurement in industrial applications. The new colorSENSOR CFO100 and CFO200 true colour sensors are suitable for a range of industrial applications, claims the company, including colour inspection of interior parts in the automotive industry.

It’s claimed the sensors offer high colour accuracy (colour difference CFO100 ΔE ≥ 1 / CFO200 ΔE ≥ 0.6), good reproducibility (ΔE ≥ 0.5/ / CFO200 ΔE ≥ 0.3), high light power (>220 lm) and a fast measuring rate (up to 20kHz), which the company says enables the sensor to reliably detect the finest of colour graduations, even in high speed measurement tasks and on low reflecting surfaces.
