KTS Prime / Contrast and color sensor

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The new KTS are both contrast and color sensors in one device. Their velocity and precision is most frequently used in printing and packaging but may also be applied other industries such as wafer production or cap welding. They detect even high gloss or flickering material. Complementary to the compact and slim housing, the rotatable connector facilitates use in tight-fitting working positions. Seven segment displays and multifunctional adjustments allow customized settings and simplify handling and usability. Highlighted fixing points are SICK´s typical design features, realized here in a high performance polymer that underlines the product’s durability and quality.
