iCoSS (industrial Colour Sensor System) is a handheld standalone unit that is capable of identifying and measuring different colours. The system can be used for both reflective and refractive materials by attaching separate colour sensor modules. The system gives RGB and CIE-L*a*b* output values along with corresponding three channel 4-20mA analog output. PPM values for the residual chlorine determination is also given as output both in LCD display as well as 4-20 mA analog output.
