The QCM50 is easy to program and troubleshoot using the onboard buttons and large integrated backlit display, which provides more intuitive, visual confirmation of sensor settings compared to traditional alphanumeric displays. The sensor can also be configured and monitored remotely via IO-Link. With IO-Link, users can visualize Red, Green, and Blue and total light intensity values of each target, for extremely fine color differentiation.
The QCM50 sensor can be configured using two different modes: color mode and best fit mode. In color mode, the sensor is configured to validate a taught color within a specified tolerance. In best fit mode, the sensor intelligently matches the target to the closest taught color, for applications where the sensor should always provide an output indicating the closest color match, regardless of small color variations.
