Color detection sensors are photo-electric sensors which generally use light to voltage, light to frequency and light to digital techniques to sense color and light. Trans-missive and reflective sensing are two major color sensing systems used in the market. In case of trans-missive sensing, the sensor identifies the color of light that is reflected from a source of light, while in reflective sensing, the sensor identifies the color of light from a particular surface. These sensors provide reliable solutions to difficult automation challenges. They are mostly used for different purposes such as detection of components, verification of stages in manufacturing processes, matching colors of adhesive tape and various components, detection of color marks on parts and packaging of products among others. Moreover, color detection sensors have wide range of applications in the industrial automation sector. With advancement of technology, different color sensors have been developed with significant improvements like smaller package size, high precision and detection of more colors among others.
