With the ColorMax VIEW, you will be able to accurately detect and verify transparent or translucent color, the kind of which you will find on tinted materials, pharmaceutical or food and beverage packaging and containers, and more. It’s a great option for improving aesthetics and maintaining product uniformity, and even protecting from the damaging effects of light.
Detecting color in an opaque material is an easy process, by comparison, as little if any light passes through the material itself. This enables a sensor to simply shine a light directly on the target and “see” the color.
However, when you’re dealing with a transparent, translucent or tinted material, a standard sensor can’t detect or see that color because the clear target simply allows light to go through.
Luckily, we developed the ColorMax VIEW specifically for high-speed on-line color verification of translucent materials, combining our field-proven sensor technology with innovative hardware and setup.
Essentially, by utilizing a separate light source at the end of its cable, you can put the ColorMax VIEW in any position and pass the material through, allowing those colors to reach the sensor itself and then be accurately verified.
By establishing pass/fail criteria for color characteristics, you will be provided with real-time quality control while eliminating defects. With color variation of .5% and a 20 kHz switching frequency, you’ll be making use of the best specs in the industry.
Serial data output allows external systems to measure color and optimize the concentration of colorant, which improves efficiency and reduces cost, and external level monitoring is available through analog RGB output channels. Plus, the ColorMax VIEW is built to last with rugged construction and M30 housing to hold up to the demands of an industrial environment.
