Canandcolor Color Period

The Canandcolor integrates both sampling and integration into one time value, which acts as the effective “exposure” of the sensor. Like a camera, lower exposure lengths will capture fast moving colors better, but also require higher light intensities to work properly. Higher exposure values can detect colors in lower light setups, but may saturate in bright environments. The default value is 40 milliseconds, which is both the fastest refresh rate and recommended for the vast majority of operating conditions.

The recommended proceedure if this value needs to be tuned is to increase it one step at a time until the color is accurately detected.
