Balluff introduces BFS 33M true color sensor with IO-Link

April 13, 2018 - Verification of product color is a constant challenge for many industries.  Balluff announced the BFS 33M true color sensor with IO-Link that works to provide a solution to this challenge.  This sensor is able to detect nuances or shade differences while disregarding surface textures.

Due to the technology, a true color sensor can check only a small spot of color, but it can check this spot 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.

Features

  • Configuration and parameterization with IO-Link
  • Configure and store up to 256 true color programs
  • Fiber optic-based, with sensing ranges up to 400mm
