SICK KTS/KTX Compact Contrast Sensor

June 26th, 2017 · No Comments · News, Sensors

SICK KTS KTXKTS and KTX powerful contrast sensors are the result of a forward-looking, innovative platform. The patented TwinEye technology for improved contrast detection and sensing distance tolerance (+- 5 mm), the specially developed three-color LED with its high-precision, color-mixed light spot, and the jitter that has been minimized to a level never before seen, coupled with absolute high-speed switching frequencies, open up a world of new possibilities when it comes to detecting contrasts and colors.

IO-Link and additional integrated functions such as recipe management ensure maximum versatility, while the innovative, multifunctional 7-segment display guarantees simple yet customized sensor setup, operation, and visualization.

With the KTS and KTX, you can control your packaging processes quickly and precisely. Thanks to TwinEye-Technology®, the KTS and KTX detect high-gloss materials and complex contrasts, even on heavily fluttering materials. The integrated color mode also enables reliable detection of even the most minor contrast differences and color features.
