Fast, Precision Color Sensors

June 4, 2009
VCS210 color sensors enable users to program, evaluate, process and display up to 255 distinct colors for precise performance geared to specific application needs. 

With a 100ms optimal response time, VCS210 sensors are up to 10 times faster than competitive color sensors, says the vendor. The VCS210 can evaluate the color of a target unaffected by its glossiness or brightness, according to the vendor. The 3x1.5x1.5-inch VCS210 sensors offer a range of selectable settings, including seven different evaluation methods, six different color space modes and six different output-trigger methods, yet are said to be quickly and easily programmable with user-friendly, intuitive Windows-based software.
