Superior to optical sensors.

Label SensorOptics-free sensing technology is at the heart of these label sensors. They see labels regular "eyes" can't see — like clear labels on a clear liner! This improved technology also makes them faster and more accurate - even on ordinary paper labels. Lion Precision's label sensors offered by IBS Precision Engineering use capacitive or ultrasonic technology so they have no sensitivity to color or contrast. The sensors are triggered by changes in thickness, not opacity or contrast.

For more information see table below with the different types of label sensors that are available.
