Combining proven color sensor technology with innovative hardware and software, the ColorMax VIEW™ Translucent Color Sensor was specifically developed for high-speed, on-line color verification of translucent packaging containers used in the pharmaceutical, food, beverage, personal care and other industries.

The white balance adjustment feature allows the entry of correction factors applied to the red, green and blue color measurements effectively providing a means of adjusting the sensor readings. This new functionality is useful when multiple sensors are used and setting them for specific RGB readings on a known target is needed.

For more color detection, see our ColorMax-1000 sensor.

  • Establishes pass/fail criteria for color characteristics of translucent packaging materials to eliminate defects
  • White Balance Adjustment software provides a graphic user interface that simplifies the calculation of the correction factors and the process of transmitting them to the sensor
  • On-line measurement allows real-time quality control
  • Modulated, wide spectrum white LED light source
  • Software control enables comprehensive control of sensor settings
  • Serial data output allows external systems to measure color and optimize the concentration of colorant, improving efficiency and reducing cost
  • Three analog output channels (red, green and blue) for external level monitoring
  • Adjustable brackets provide quick set-up and integration
  • Laser position sensor indicates container positioned for measurement
  • Rugged construction and exclusive M30 housing
