Controlled Depth of Field
While being highly diffuse horizontally, the special optics collimates the light vertically. Not only is this a very efficient use of the light generated by the LEDs, it also allows for a controlled depth of field and excellent color calibration without requiring a background surface/roller that must be kept very clean. WECO Free-Space Optics eliminate the need for controlled backgrounds and the associated maintenance.
ChromaxHD sorters are full spectrum sorters operating over the entire visible and infra-red spectrum. Multiple color spaces are used to make the sorters extremely flexible tools for performing a wide variety of sorting tasks. Modeled after human color perception, the sorter is very intuitive to setup and fine tune in operation.
The WECO ChromaxHD sorters have very low power requirements and do not require active cooling. There is no need for fans or chillers even in ambient temperatures over 100° degrees F.
In the unlikely event a ChromaxHD optic module fails, it can be replaced in a few minutes on site by a WECO technician without requiring alignment or calibration. This limits the risk of lengthy and costly down-time.
