A spectrophotometer / color meter is a tool for measuring color that is used to record and assess color. Manufacturers use spectrophotometers / color meter to monitor color correctness throughout manufacturing, and brand owners and designers use them to specify and convey color as part of a color control program.

Spectrophotometers / Color Meter assist guarantee that color remains consistent from conception to delivery by measuring a wide range of materials, including liquids, plastics, paper, metal, and textiles.

The “fingerprint” of the color is the spectral reflectance curve that a spectrophotometer / color meter produces.

Color may be measured and quantified on a number of surfaces using color spectrophotometers / color meter. Spectrophotometers / color meter are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, including small handheld models, substantial tabletop models, and inline devices that measure color right on the manufacturing line.

Why Choose Portable Spectrophotometer / Color Meter

In order to help you regulate color consistently and correctly, from inspiration and communication through formulation and quality control, X-Rite, the world leader in color trends, science, and technology, provides a comprehensive range of high-performance color measuring devices which is spectrophotometer / color meter.

Reflective surfaces can be difficult to assess since the gloss effect can alter how color’s look. In order to determine a color measurement that closely resembles human vision, a spherical spectrophotometer / color meter examines the light reflected at all angles. Spectrophotometer / Color Meter is frequently used for measuring color that has been applied to shining or mirror-like surfaces like metallic inks, printing over foil, and other extremely glossy surfaces as well as textured surfaces like fabrics, carpets, and plastics.

A white surface that is very reflecting and has a light source on the back make up a spherical instrument’s interior. It diffusely illuminates the sample since a baffle precludes direct lighting. The detector of spectrophotometer / color meter views the sample and gloss angle at an angle of 8° from perpendicular, and here is where the specular port is situated. To take into account variations in lighting, the reference beam port keeps an eye on the spherical wall.

A spherical spectrophotometer / color meter is similar to a standard bench-top spectrophotometer / color meter in terms of features, and it has the ability to measure reflectance in two different ways: specular included (SPIN) and specular excluded (SPEX). The specular port shuts in order to incorporate gloss into the measurement. The specular port opens to allow the specular component escape in order to exclude gloss. Particularly with reflecting material, fabrics, and textile materials, the texture and/or gloss impact of samples might vary substantially. While a SPEX test captures a sample’s whole appearance, a SPIN measurement accurately assesses color without regard to gloss or texture.

The dependable Ci60 spectrophotometer/ color meter line of laboratory instruments from X-Rite are excellent for heavy usage in challenging environments because of their tough construction. The spectrophotometer / color meter clear screen interface with a wavelength range of 400 nm to 700 nm, an ergonomic design, and a straightforward pass indicator with a green tick are key characteristics. With optional cuvettes and sample cells, dual spot switchable medium and small apertures (4 and 8 or 14 mm) offer additional versatility for measuring a wider range of sample sizes and allow for speedy measurement and quality control readings on challenging-to-hold samples. The spectrophotometer / color meter flip-back shoe has a dependable detent lock and is made to resist rigorous wear.

The Ci60 spectrophotometer / color meter series includes models ranging from the standalone Ci60 to the sophisticated and exact Ci64, which is offered in a number of configurations and has simultaneous measurement of the specular component (SPIN/SPEX), correlated gloss, and a UV option to efficiently measure uneven surfaces on a range of goods and packaging types. The L*a*b*, DL*Da*Db*, L *C*h°, DL*DC*DH*, DE*ab, DECMC, DE CIE94, and XYZ absolute and difference measurements are available from any of the nine illuminant/observer combinations using the Ci60 series. according to ASTM E 313-98, whiteness and yellowness
