FT 55-CM The Full Spectrum Color Sensor

The FT 55-CM is an intelligent color sensor that can distinguish up to twelve colors. It offers a wide operating range, combined with its flexible color detection. It also has reliable brightness detection regardless of distance. Color sensors usually struggle with the fact that object brightness is evaluated differently according to distance. SensoPart has solved this issue with patent-pending distance correction technology. This enables consistent brightness evaluation across an operating range up to 65mm, guaranteeing stable processes, even when objects are not supplied in the correct position.

The FT 55-CM is equipped with an IO-Link interface. Allowing for fast and user friendly communication for setup and switching between different sensor configurations. You can also output color value via IO-Link.
