High-resolution Contrast Sensor

Jan. 23, 2008
The CNTX contrast sensor is billed as the highest-resolution white LED contrast sensor on the market, and the only sensor able to reliably detect up to 50 gray-scale levels.

Unlike standard contrast sensors with rectangular light spots that can be mounted in only one direction—parallel to the mark on the target—the CNTX sensor’s round spot allows it to be mounted in any orientation. The CNTX has a two-digit display that shows the values of a background and a mark to indicate available switching margin. The CNTX has the ability to lock the controls so the operator cannot change the settings and cause errors. Single-unit pricing is $300, with quantity discounts available.
