BriteX Brightness Sensor OVERVIEW
The BriteX™ brightness sensor employs our field-proven, patented technology to provide a simple solution for on-line monitoring and detection of a wide variety of materials in manufacturing and packaging applications. Our brightness sensors can detect differences in color, brightness, and surface texture at a lower cost than competing products making them an ideal solution for multi-point sensing applications. BriteX brightness sensors improve process control by allowing more measurement points for real-time process feedback. Tighter control of processes can reduce operating costs and minimize quality variations.
The BriteX sensor measures relative brightness defined by ISO 2470 as a reflectance factor of diffused blue light at 457nm. The BriteX features a 2-digit display that provides an indication of signal strength, making set-up and integration quick and easy. The versatile sensor provides user set-up parameters including light source intensity adjustment, detection threshold, and gain selection.
Brightness Sensor Applications:
- BriteX-1000P™ – For in-line process control of paper brightness, paper bleaching, and de-inking, paper grading, and textile applications
- BriteX-1000S™ – Effective reflectance measurements of raw or refined ICUMSA* sugar color on-line using field-proven, patented technology.
