Contrast sensor Glare - SICK

The Contrast Glare sensor is specially designed to recognize and differentiate objects on the basis of their gloss in order to control production processes.

The Glare sensor from SICK analyzes the spatial distribution of reflected light using Delta-S technology, which allows the sensor to determine the gloss level of flat object surfaces and to differentiate between objects of differing gloss levels. The measurement result is transmitted to the process controls either via two digital switching outputs or IO-Link.Several operating modes are available, making the Glare sensor perfectly suited to a range of different applications.
