Detects even very slight color nuances and masters changing distances
With its high color resolution and an innovative teach-in method, the new CSS High Resolution color sensor can even distinguish between fine color nuances. It also detects color gradients and structured materials like wood. Besides sensing distances of up to 500 mm, the CSS High Resolution comes with an automatic sensing distance regulation feature: The CSS High Resolution detects colors precisely even at changing distances and with varying object sizes. Furthermore, the full color TFT sensor display shows color values (L*a*b or RGB) as well as the similarity of a detected color to a taught-in color. Up to 24 colors per identification task (job) can be transferred via the IO-Link interface and saved externally. Thanks to an application-specific setup assistant, the sensor can be quickly installed via the SOPAS software.

Detects even very minor color differences
With its especially high color resolution and large depth of field, the CSS High Resolution color sensor can distinguish between color nuances that are even hard for the human eye to recognize. Color gradients and structured materials and surfaces such as stone or fabric also present no challenge thanks to the innovative teach-in method.
Thanks to its high performance and numerous application areas, the CSS High Resolution color sensor is an attractive alternative to expensive color measurement systems.
Innovative feature: the automatic sensing distance regulation
Different distances to the object normally affects the color perception of a sensor. SICK compensates for this effect with the automatic sensing distance regulation feature, using which the CSS High Resolution can correctly sort colors even with varying object heights. The automatic sensing distance regulation enables the sensor to detect different object sizes at changing distances in a process without having to teach in the device again. This saves time and ensures flexibility.
The automatic sensing distance regulation makes the CSS High Resolution suitable for applications with changing distances and object sizes.
Precise color value display on a full color TFT display
The CSS High Resolution color sensor shows color values (RGB or L*a*b) on its display. It can also determine and visualize the difference between the taught-in color and the detected color. Not only raw data but also processed data are therefore available.
On its full color display, CSS High Resolution shows not only the RGB values but also L*a*b values as well as the similarity of the detected color to a taught-in color.
More possibilities thanks to IO-Link
Thanks to the smart setup assistant in the SOPAS software, the color sensor is especially quick to install. Furthermore, the simple diagnostics, monitoring and adjustment of the CSS High Resolution during operation provides efficiency gains.
Thanks to its many intelligent tools, the CSS High Resolution color sensor saves valuable resources and increases the system productivity through predictive maintenance.
