Balluff BFS 33MBalluff’s BFS 33M true color sensor can detect objects with a varying color pattern, on an uneven surface and in tight quarters. Moreover, the company says that this sensor delivers:

  • The detection of even the slightest shades, smallest grey level differences or minimal changes to surface properties.
  • 7 channels and 3 digital outputs for set-point detection, and the flexibility to use the serial interface to not only configure the unit, but also output color data to perform color evaluations.
  • The direct transmission of lab color space values via a serial interface.
  • A sensing range up to 400 mm.
  • Fiber-optic cable-based optics that allow the placement of the detection optics in very tight spaces.
  • A 1.5-kHz switching frequency that makes it possible to monitor fast processes.
  • The flexibility to make and display all sensor settings using user-friendly software.
  • A high degree of flexibility through fiber adaptation.
  • Simple configuration and visualization using software.
  • A robust metal housing.
