The ability to teach up to four colors can lead to faster changeovers and shorter downtime. The CS8 series offers high switching speeds – as fast as 6 kHz (85 µsec) – enabling higher throughput. And, the sensor maintains the extreme precision of the lightspot; this sharp, well-defined spot provides tighter process control and more consistent object detection. A bar graph display enables easy setup and provides information about the color quality and detection reliability.
