High-precision inline color measurements
The colorCONTROL ACS7000 color measurement system not only recognizes reference colors by comparison, but identifies individual colors clearly from their coordinates in the color space. With its high speed spectrometer, the colorCONTROL ACS7000 is suitable for applications where colors and shades have to be examined online with the highest accuracy.

The standard sensor ACS1 is used for common measuring tasks. The transmitter and the receiver inside the sensor are arranged at an angle of 30°/0° to each other, producing a working distance of 50 mm. An optionally available adapter permits applying the sensor even in tactile measurements.
The circular sensor ACS2 is used for color measurement of structured and highly reflective surfaces as well as lustrous metals. In the sensor, 24 lighting optics are circularly arranged around the receiving optics and provide a constant lighting permitting that the measurement can be executed independently from the angular position of the measurement object. There are two ACS2 versions with different measurement distance and spot size.
The transmission sensor ACS3 is applied for measurements of self-luminous objects and transparent objects as well. Measuring the color of self-luminous objects requires only the receiver unit, whereas a transmitter and a receiver unit are necessary when detecting transparent objects. The transmitter and the receiver unit can easily be fixed by means of a mounting set.
