CSS High Resolution

Even detects color nuances that are difficult for the human eye to distinguish

The CSS High Resolution color sensor impresses with its especially high color resolution and large depth of field. This means it detects even very slight color differences precisely. Thanks to an innovative teach-in procedure, the color sensor also detects color gradients and textured materials such as wood, stone and leather.

Color detection over changing distances

The CSS High Resolution detects color nuances, regardless of the distance to the object for more flexibility in use. With a sensing distance of up to 500 mm, the color sensor also detects objects of different sizes and changing distances to a process.

CSS High Resolution

Output of up to 15 colors per sensor, up to 24 colors via IO-Link

The four switching outputs of the 8-pin variants are binary coded in “Coded” mode. This is how up to 15 colors can be output via the sensor. IO-Link opens up even more options: Up to 24 colors can be transmitted and stored externally for an identification task (job).

CSS/CSX High Speed

Fast detection and output of up to 24 colors

With a switching frequency of up to 13.8 kHz, CSS/CSX High Speed color sensors detect object colors very quickly. The sensors even reliably detect color gradients and structured materials. Other advantages of the CSS/CSX High Speed: Precise sensitivity adjustment, output of color values and color similarities as well as additional adjustment and output options using the IO-Link interface.

Advantages

As wide-ranging as their applications – color sensors from SICK

Color sensors detect object colors. To do so, the sensors emit light throughout the entire visible range onto the objects to be inspected, calculate the color proportions from the reflected light and compare these with previously taught reference color values.

SICK offers the right solutions when the color makes the difference: From tight spaces and fast processes to precise testing of color nuances.

Very high color resolution over changing distances – CSS High Resolution

With its very high color resolution, the CSS High Resolution color sensor can distinguish between color nuances that are even hard for the human eye to detect. Even with different object sizes and changing distances to the sensor, the CSS High Resolution assigns color tones correctly. Other device highlights are the output of the color values, the full-color TFT display and the IO-Link interface, which, for instance, enables parallel transmission and storage of up to 24 colors.

Automatic sensing distance regulation

The CSS High Resolution automatically adjusts its color evaluation to the object distance. This ensures process flexibility.

Color value display on a full color TFT display

Color values (L*a*b or RGB) as well as the similarity of a detected color to a taught-in color are shown on the sensor display.

Monitoring and additional tools via IO-Link

IO-Link enables fast sensor commissioning, many adjustment options and intelligent real-time monitoring.

The CSS High Resolution impresses with its high performance in color resolution and sensing distance, even if it varies. Additional advantages are the output of the color values, the full-color TFT display and the IO-Link interface.

Fast detection of up to 24 colors in just one process – the CSS/CSX High Speed

With a switching frequency of up to 13.8 kHz, the CSS/CSX High Speed is particularly well suited to high conveyor speeds, for instance in sorting processes or for the fast detection of color markings. Using IO-Link, up to 24 stored colors as well as raw color values (RGB/L*a*b) can be transmitted and stored externally.

For high speeds

With a switching frequency of 13.8 kHz, the CSS/CSX High Speed distinguishes colors even at high process speeds.

Output of 15 or 24 colors

Durch Verknüpfung seiner 4 Schaltausgänge kann der Sensor 15 Farben ausgeben, mithilfe von IO-Link sogar 24 Farben.

Color values and color similarity

The CSS/CSX High Speed shows the difference between the taught-in color and the detected color. Color values (RGB or L*a*b) can also be read out via IO-Link.

The CSS/CSX High Speed devices impress with quick color detection of many objects and can be precisely adjusted to the respective application.
