Product description

The COAST-56-45°-VIS-IR4 is a hybrid sensor which can perform color-, gloss- as well as structure measurments. The sensor measures at a distance of 56 mm with a spot size of 20 mm with high precision- and speed the color, gloss, and structure of surfaces. Think about foils, plastics, copper foil, but also of aluminiums, veneer, high quality textiles and artificial leather or Alcantara. Sometimes the color or gloss differences between several surfaces very minor, maar it definitely is of an other quality. The additional measurement of the structure of the surface could offer a solution here. This state-of-the-art measurement system makes it possible to get a hold on the important parameters during the production process and is an indispensible instrument for the quality manager!

About the COAST series

The sensors of the COAST Series (COlor And STructure) are hybrid sensors that comprises two sensors that only are synchronised by the LED ring light but otherwise operate independently of each other. Both sensors can be connected to a PLC or to a PC. One of the two sensors (Color sensor) provides information about the color and gloss of the product. The other sensor (Structure sensor checks the structure of the surface.

Using forward and backward scattering of object surfaces in PARA mode: Some object surfaces are very hard to differentiate if only backward scattering is used. If, however, forward scattering is used in addition, surfaces that have very similar colours but slightly different structures can be differentiated quite well. Light is directed onto the surface at an angle of -30° and +30° from the normal (vertical). Only one light source is active at a time, which allows independent evaluation of forward and backward scattering.
