ColorMax VIEW™ Overview

Translucent Color Sensor

Verify the color of translucent glass, plastic containers, and films with in-line, high-speed, accurate, and reliable measurements. The ColorMax VIEW™ translucent color sensor combines our field-proven, patented technology with innovative hardware to provide an easy-to-use system for measuring color in a wide variety of applications. Many products require tight control of color for aesthetics, product uniformity, and often to protect them from the damaging effects of light. Establishing pass/fail criteria for the color characteristics of various translucent packaging materials and providing inline verification eliminates defects and allows real-time quality control of these processes. The ColorMax VIEW system provides a reliable solution, allowing each and every item to be verified to meet its color requirement.

Translucent Color Sensor Application:

  • Translucent packaging
  • Pharmaceutical containers
  • Food packaging
  • Personal care products
  • Glass containers
  • Plastic bottles
  • Translucent films


Easy White Balance Adjustment

The white balance adjustment feature of the ColorMax VIEW™ translucent color sensor allows the entry of correction factors applied to the red, green and blue color measurements effectively providing a means of adjusting the sensor readings. This new functionality is useful when multiple sensors are used and setting them for specific RGB readings on a known target is needed.

Dedicated Software

The ColorMax Application Program provides a comprehensive approach to sensor set-up, color channel management, and real-time sample analysis display. Low color variation of 0.5% and a 20kHz switching frequency are the best specs in the industry, providing the performance required by demanding applications. The metal alloy case and glass lens provide robust construction expected in an industrial environment.
