Contrast sensors gauge how often light the target reflects in order to distinguish between two hues. Most of the time, the difference between target and background colours correlates to the shift in contrast. Contrast sensors are frequently employed in packaging and printing equipment to detect print marks.
The Global Contrast Sensors market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
Contrast Sensor Technology Leaps Forward with the SICK KTS/KTX. The KTS/KTX family of contrast sensors, introduced by SICK, offers a potent next-generation technology that sets new standards in dependability, accuracy, and adaptability for print, labelling, converting, and packaging applications.
In sheet- and reel-fed manufacturing, even under difficult circumstances, the SICK KTS and KTX family of monochrome and colour contrast sensors achieves unprecedented levels of detection accuracy and switching frequency speed. The sensors have small, lightweight housings made of durable ABS, IO-Link data transfer, and an intuitive on-board display for quick setup and enhanced diagnostics.
The sensors include SICK’s ground-breaking Twin-Eye Technology, which has a larger sensing distance tolerance and superior depth of field for improved contrast detection. Greater grey-scale sensitivity allows for even better detection of registration marks in monochrome or colour, even on very glossy packaging.
Customers can select various degrees of functionality to meet their needs from the product’s variety of “core” and “prime” options. The KTS and KTX are easily able to handle up to 250 packs per minute and compensate for high-speed flutter on reel-to-reel material edges thanks to their up to 70kHz switching frequency and down to 3 sec jitter rate (a level of performance never before attained).
Common applications like print mark detection and industrial labelling process management will instantly reap the benefits of the new technology’s enhanced process stability and reduced machine downtime. The increased variety of sensor alternatives now offers more possibilities for application areas like wafer detection, reel change management, and quality control.
