The new CSM color sensor in the miniature housing offers accurate color detection and is IO-Link-capable. It is perfectly suited for applications in which color features need to be reliably detected while taking up as little installation space as possible. The sensor detects and monitors objects based on object color. The small CSM color sensor can be easily configured using simple static or dynamic teach-in methods. This can be done on site via the teach-in button or remotely via IO-Link, which offers intelligent diagnostic and visualization options as well as simple configuration. With a sensing distance of 12.5 mm up to 15 mm in the extended variant, the CSM can be used in many applications without any problems.
