The KTM, which has a high grayscale resolution, is particularly suitable for detecting black and white or color materials as well as matte or shiny objects. With OES4 ASIC technology, a switching frequency up to 15 kHz and a short response time of 35 μs, the KTM is able to reliably detect contrast differences in a wide range of packaging applications. It includes both static and dynamic teach-in options for flexible commissioning.
