Precise color sensors for integration in BUS environments


The precise True Color sensors can now be optionally integrated into a BUS environment. This is possible either directly via Modbus TCP or RTU or via an interconnected gateway for PROFINET or EtherNet/IP (Modbus RTU). The Modbus TCP and a corresponding gateway can also be used to integrate the colorSENSOR CFO into an EtherCAT environment.

The CFO color sensors quickly measure up to 320 colors and the finest of color shades on metals, plastics, glass and textiles with highest precision. The measurement process is performed on a non-contact, wear-free basis at up to 30 kHz. These modern sensors are thus designed for fast, automated inspection tasks as within a second, the color accuracy of up to 15,000 parts are inspected with ∆E ≤ 0.3.

The measurements are performed without contact and wear-free. Moreover, the sensor heads can be individually adapted to customer applications.


  • Integration of the systems into BUS environments
  • Measuring up to 320 colors
  • Fast measurements up to 30 kHz
  • High color accuracy of ∆E < 0.3
