Detects 24 stored colors quickly and offers precise adjustments
The CSS/CSX High Speed color sensor is characterized by its high switching frequency and its precise, infinitely variable sensitivity adjustment. Furthermore, the sensor outputs color values (L*a*b or RGB) as well as the similarity of a detected color to a taught-in color. Thanks to its innovative teach-in procedure, the CSS/CSX High Speed also detects color gradients and structured materials. The switching outputs of the device can be binary coded in “Coded” mode without interfaces, which enables it to output up to 15 colors. Up to 24 colors per identification task (job) can even be transferred via the IO-Link interface and saved externally. The sensor can be quickly and precisely configured for the specific application using the setup assistant in the SOPAS software.
At a glance
Switching frequency: 13.8 kHz
Output of color values (L*a*b or RGB) and color similarity
Output of up to 15 colors using the “Coded” mode
Up to 24 colors per identification task (job) can be saved
IO-Link interfaces; SOPAS software with application-specific setup assistant
CSX: installation-compatible to CS8
Quick detection of color gradients as well as precise sensitivity adjustment
With a switching frequency of 13.8 kHz, CSS/CSX High Speed color sensors are very well suited to fast processes. Thanks to the innovative teach-in procedure, even color gradients and structured materials are no problem for the sensors. Their sensitivity can also be precisely adjusted.
Quick detection of structured materials and switching tolerances that can be adjusted with process accuracy
Outputs up to 15 colors, or even up to 24 with IO-Link interface
The four switching outputs of the 8-pin variants are binary coded in “Coded” mode and therefore enable output of up to 15 colors – directly at the sensor. IO-Link opens up even more options: Up to 24 colors can be stored in one job.
Detect and sort up to 24 colors in one process – with just one sensor
Display of color similarity and output of color values
The CSS/CSX High Speed shows the difference between the taught-in color and the detected color on its display. Color values (RGB or L*a*b) can also be transmitted and stored via IO-Link.
The CSS/CSX High Speed devices show the difference between taught-in color and detected color – color values can also be transmitted and stored via IO-Link
More options thanks to IO-Link
Thanks to the smart setup assistant in the SOPAS software, the color sensor is especially quick to install. The simple diagnostics, monitoring and adjustment of the CSS/CSX High Speed during operation also improves efficiency.
Thanks to its many intelligent tools, the CSS/CSX High Speed color sensor saves valuable resources and increases system productivity through predictive maintenance.
