Best performance in the market: X-Rite Ci7800 or Ci7600 Benchtop Spectrophotometer
From concept through final product, color accuracy across the entire supply chain is the optimal goal. Whether you are in textiles and apparel, paint and coatings, or plastics, you can bring the full weight of X-Rite’s color measurement and management expertise to bear on your color network when you invest in the next generation of X-Rite benchtop spectrophotometers.

Like the Ci7600, the Ci7800 can measure opaque, translucent, and transparent samples. However, with tighter inter-instrument agreement and repeatability, it’s ideal for manufacturers that need to seamlessly communicate, share, and coordinate color-critical values and specifications. The Ci7800 works with X-RiteColor iQC quality assurance software to quickly identify whether a sample is within tolerance, and if not, provides direct feedback to get it on target. Embedded NetProfiler status lights verify device is optimized for measurement performance.

Versatile Control for Opaque, Transparent, Translucent, and Fluorescent Samples

The Ci7800 offers up to five reflectance and four transmission apertures to measure color and appearance on a wide range of samples in port up, port down, and port forward positions. It can be fitted with various accessories to measure textured materials, odd shapes, liquids, powders, and gels, and uses up to 3 UV filters to control optical brighteners in textiles, plastics, paint, coatings, and paper.

Ensure Operator Confidence and Consistent Measurements

The Ci7800 delivers consistent configuration across all locations and eliminates the potential for error using automated, software-driven setup. The on-board digital camera with preview and active targeting (remove the word to) guarantee accurate sample targeting. It can also capture images for future retrieval so any smudges, scratches or imperfections can be detected and accompany the measurement data for audit.

Maintains Performance

The Ci7000 Series is stable and will notify the operator if calibration is required to maintain measurement accuracy.

Temperature and Humidity Sensors

Instrument humidity and temperature sensors above the drawer ensure the environment is suitable for measurements.
