Color Sensor B5WC W8.4mm × L40mm × H15.9mm

Color sensors for built-in devices are finally available!
- Color changes and differences will not be missed -

Color Sensor Application Examples

Machine tool: Remote monitoring of lubricant color
By monitoring the color of the lubricating oil with a color sensor, the deterioration of the oil can be quantitatively monitored, optimizing and streamlining maintenance.

Ratio of RGB output voltage to petroleum product color standard sample*

*For ASTM Color

Drink dispenser: Automatic supply of beverages according to cup color
By automatically selecting beverage types based on the cup color using a color sensor, stores can improve work efficiency and reduce waste due to improper operation.

1. Cup color is purple → Grape juice served/2. Cup color is red → Strawberry juice served Ratio of RGB output voltage to Munsell color

Special features here!
Color sensor following the size of the B5W series for built-in device applications.

Same external dimensions as B5W-LB2 series.
