Detect True Colors

March 16, 2008
The E3X-DAC fiber-optic sensor detects true colors in marks and workpieces. Measurements are independent of the light intensity and any sensing distance variations caused by vibration.

The slim, 10mm wide amplifier unit processes color detection through an RGB light-receiving element. The use of a single, white LED and one-package light-receiving element unifies the amplifier in both size and operation, thus lowering cost compared to conventional three-LED amplifiers. One-touch teaching simplifies set-up in registering colors, and smart functions optimize positioning of target objects for detection. All models feature a timer function with variable ON or OFF delay up to 5s. The E3X-DAC also provides remote teaching input function and a function lock that prevents sensor tampering. The E3X-DAC sensor is priced at $220.
