About the ColorMax VIEW™

Combining proven color sensor technology with innovative hardware and software, the ColorMax VIEW™ translucent color sensor was specifically developed for high-speed, on-line color verification of translucent glass, plastic containers and films.

Industries that could greatly benefit from this unit include:

  • Pharmaceutical
  • Food and beverage
  • Personal care

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.

For opaque color detection, see our ColorMax-1000 sensor.
