Reliable Color Sensors for Industrial Automation
With our efficient color sensors, you can verify the presence of opaque targets that can be differentiated by color faster and with greater control. A ColorMax-1000™ color sensor lets your machine see up to 15 colors and RGB intensity. Innovative technology improves sensitivity and speed, so you can maximize the pace of your manufacturing and optimize your facility’s output.
Color Sensor Highlights
Our ColorMax-1000 sensors come with a variety of key features as standard for our customers.
Of particular note, the white balance adjustment feature allows for the entry of correction factors applied to the red, green and blue color measurements which provides a means of adjusting the sensor’s readings. This functionality is useful when multiple sensors are used and setting them for a specific RGB reading of a known target is required.

Other key features of these color sensors for automation include:
- The ability to recognize 15 colors. Use fewer sensors. No need to reprogram when you change setups.
- Fast 20kHz sample speed allows for quicker manufacturing and more efficient operations
- PC-based configuration software giving you the ability to lock out unauthorized changes
Traditional color sensors output only a “match/no match” condition, but the ColorMax-1000 provides analog output values for each RGB reading. Now, machines and operators can see which color is being analyzed and how much color is present, which in turn enables tighter control. Read our application notes on how color sensors ensure error-free manufacturing across a wide variety of industries.
This unit is an accessory that interfaces with the computer or PLC controller.
