Color is one of the last qualities still being checked by human eyes in most applications. Color sensors such as the CS24D are changing this. Electronic color sensors are increasingly being used in automated applications to reduce automation errors and improve quality at production line speeds.

Delta’s color sensors and sorters are based on our patented pulsed LED technology and offer the benefits of rugged, long-life, solid-state lighting with a wide range of colors from blue to near-infrared.

While most color sensors use a single white LED and filtered detectors, Delta's color sensors are different. They use multiple ultra-high intensity LEDs for smooth, bright lighting and unfiltered large-area precision photodiodes for better signal-to-noise ratio. And the resulting large sensing areas provide superior performance on textured materials.

Be confident the color you want is traveling down your production line. Delta’s color sensors provide superior performance in a wide variety of applications, even with textured and other difficult materials.

Model Features
Accurate color detection—even on textured or uneven surfaces
Teach to recognize up to fifteen different colors
Optimize performance with easy-to-use ColorSense software (included)
Teach with eight readings per color to accommodate normal color variations
Discrete 12-24VDC I/O for compatibility with any PLC
Four Analog 0-10VDC outputs, proportional to diffuse reflected light from the sensing area

RMCLink .NET Assembly and ActiveX Control

RS-232 Monitor portNote: If the serial settings on the second RMC75S RS-232 port are identical to the fixed RS-232 Monitor port settings, RMCLink can communicate with that port. The RMCLink component enables direct communication with any of Delta Computer System's RMC family of motion controllers from numerous programming languages and applications.


RMC70 Series Motion Controllers

Open Loop ControlRamp the Control Output smoothly between two values, or ramp the Control Output down as the position approaches the final position, for hard-to-control systems. The RMC70 provides an extensive set of motion commands and programming capability for quick and easy yet flexible motion control for virtually every motion application.


Motion Controllers

Features such as synchronized moves, splines, position-pressure or position-force control, and fast user programs provide higher throughput, improved quality, and reduced machine wear and breakage through optimized control. Delta’s motion controllers provide precise closed-loop position, velocity, pressure, force, and position-pressure or position-force control for electric, hydraulic, and pneumatic applications.



Delta designs, manufactures and markets single and multi-axis motion controller and accessory products for industrial hydraulic, pneumatic and electric closed loop position, velocity and pressure/force applications. We strive to be the industry leaders in responsive support and training, before, during and after the sale of new and legacy products.
