Color measuring technology is able to capture color information objectively. Colors are quantified and precisely defined.
A person, or an object, can distinguish different colors based on the wavelength they are emitting. As it's well-known, every color emits a different wavelength. This needs to be measured precisely and accurately.
There are variations in color perception when it comes to humans. But not when it comes to machines. Like our new Click board™ - Spectral click.
Spectral click is a light sensing device, which uses a high-precision IC for true-color sensing. The Click board™ provides a direct reading of the XYZ color coordinates.
Spectral click carries the AS7261, an XYZ chromatic white color sensor that has NIR with electronic shutter and smart interface. This multispectral sensor incorporates 6 photodiodes. Every photo element gets filtered through the Gaussian filters.
This Click board™ can be used in various applications that require color measurement, color matching, or color calibration.
Unlike weight, or length of an object, its color is not easy to measure, at least in the physical sense.
Imagine you have two apples in front of you, one is red, and the other one is light green and smaller. How would you describe the color of them, and the difference between the two, to someone who has never seen colors?
Describing colors with words is not precise at all. That is why people have turned to more scientific ways of defining colors. Every color has a different hue, saturation, and lightness. By combining these features, and assigning a number to each one, we can have numerical representations of color.
