A healthy splash of colour!

Remit: Vital 100% quality control using correct colour control and sorting

In medical technology in particular, the correct choice of colour is in many cases of decisive, even vital importance.

Colour channel/colour contrast regulation is therefore essential in achieving 100% quality control in industrial image processing and in the cameras, lighting and optical components used.

With the help of various colour differentiation algorithms and the universal flexible vcwin® operating software, pictor® series smart cameras and also vicosys® series multi camera systems can determine these colour qualities and subsequent sorting can be conducted using various communications and control protocols.
