Color sensors are generally used for color detection, color measurement, and color control. Typical color sensors convert the primary color components of light, namely red (R), green (G), and blue (B) to analog voltage outputs. In color sensor systems, three electronic light transmitters such as light emitting diodes, are used to illuminate an object whose color is to be measured by emitting light pulses in a predetermined narrow-band range of wavelengths. The reflected light is decomposed by means of lenses and standard color filters into the primary colors, red, green and blue. The intensity of the individual color components is then converted into electrical signals by photosensors. An evaluation device which is coupled to the electronic light receiver then makes a color determination based on the intensity of the received individual electrical signals arriving in the course of the control cycle. Among color sensors, color sensors using multi-junction semiconductors are considered to be favorable since they can detect each spectrum of the incident light without distribution thereof by color filtering and the like. A typical spectrophotometer gives color information in terms of measured reflectances or transmittances of light, at the different wavelengths of light, from the test surface.
