FZ-10 photoelectric sensor

Colour detection sensor amplifier.

Colour detection sensor amplifier

FZ-10 colour sensors are equipped with three LEDs - red, green and blue - as their light source. This contributes to a long sensor life and a high immunity against disturbances through ambient light. The RGB components of each detected colour are processed digitally, thus the smallest differences will be detected by this sensor. Even white and yellow can be distinguished.

By pressing justa single button, the sensor memorises the inspected colour as a reference. Allowable deviations from this target colour can be set with a 16-step tolerance adjuster. Four different fibres with spot diameters from 1 to 8mm and different sensing ranges are available for this colour sensor. With a response time of only 1ms, FZ-10 sensors are also suitable for high-speed colour checking applications.
