Luminescence color sensor

SPECTRO-3-UV Series - Luminescence color sensors
High-speed color detection of fluorescent objects

In addition to brightness differentiation, the luminescence color sensors of the SPECTRO-3-UV series also perform color differentiation. Teaching of the fluorescent objects can be performed either with the SPECTRO3-Scope software, with the TEACH button that is integrated at the sensor, or through digital input INØ. The 40 kHz scanning frequency and the 30 kHz switching frequency also guarantee a reliable detection and recognition of fast-moving fluorescent marks.
