True Color Sensor with IO-Link
Balluf BFS 33M offers sensing ranges up to 400mm and can be configured and store up to 256 true color programs.
Balluff’s BFS 33M true color sensor with IO-Link is able to detect the smallest nuances or shade differences while disregarding surface textures. A true color sensor can check only a small spot of color, but it can check this spot amazingly fast—up to 1.5 kHz with a range of 400 mm. Unlike a color sensor camera, which will focus on the object’s surface pattern and might cause false readings, the true color sensor will ignore patterns, thus providing more accurate color detection. Balluff’s true color sensors use white LEDs to provide a greater color spectrum evaluation. Combine this with the CIELAB Lab color space and the result is a color sensor that meets or exceeds the human eye. Lab color space includes all possible colors, exceeding the range of the RGB color model. The sensor offers flexibility through configuration and parameterization with IO-Link and can be configured and store up to 256 true color programs.
