Color Sensors

Color is one of the last qualities still being checked by human eyes in most applications. Color sensors such as the CS24D are changing this. Electronic color sensors are increasingly being used in automated applications to reduce automation errors and improve quality at production line speeds.

Color sensor in a factory

Delta’s color sensors and sorters are based on our patented pulsed LED technology and offer the benefits of rugged, long-life, solid-state lighting with a wide range of colors from blue to near-infrared.

While most color sensors use a single white LED and filtered detectors, Delta's color sensors are different. They use multiple ultra-high intensity LEDs for smooth, bright lighting and unfiltered large-area precision photodiodes for better signal-to-noise ratio. And the resulting large sensing areas provide superior performance on textured materials.

Be confident the color you want is traveling down your production line. Delta’s color sensors provide superior performance in a wide variety of applications, even with textured and other difficult materials.
