Color sensors are used to enable a machine to sense the presence of a target, for example, to determine if a part was painted or not. Color sensors can also be used for sorting by color, for example, in packaging. They are also used in medical laboratory equipment. Some sensors can recognize different colors or distinguish between shades of a color, in a cosmetic or textile process, for instance. Other color sensors don't actually detect color but rather the contrast of a color mark against a background. Most color sensors detect three or more wavelength bands to determine color.Learn more

Specialists in finding sensor technology for various applications.
UV (ultraviolet light) luminescence sensors are ideal for sensing the presence of a target in a machine process. They are often used instead of vision systems and other types of photoelectric sensors if the target is transparent, its orientation is variable, its color is similar to the background color, or markings on a product need to be invisible to the end user. Many industrial materials - such as rubber, starches, UV-curable gaskets, and grease - are naturally UV luminescent. If the target is not UV luminescent, UV markers can be applied or added to the formula of almost any material.Learn more
