Omron Electronics B5WC Color Sensor provides a 40mm sensing distance, 5VDC power supply voltage, and an I2C communication method. This sensor delivers stable equipment operation by detecting the objects by colour and can be built into equipment due to its compact form and a high degree of installation flexibility.

The sensor delivers reliable detection of changes and differences in colour that can contribute to equipment automation. The colour sensor emits light employing a white LED as a light source and receives reflected light determined by the colour of the detected object.

The output voltage value changes depending on the colour of the liquid, and different output voltage values depending on the colour of the sensing object.

The device is suitable for machine tools and beverage production equipment.
