Fast and accurate portable Colour Spectrophotometer

Measures in seconds and converts color into LaB, YxY, LCh, HiFi or Pantone. Available with specialist software for ink recycling and coloured paper broke recycling.

The SP62 Portable Sphere Spectrophotometer is convenient, cost-efficient and designed to provide fast, precise color measurement information on a wide range of materials, such as paper, paint, plastics, and textiles. Versatile and for use in lab, plant, or field operation

Absolute and difference measurements displayed on an esy to read, large, graphical LCD display. Permits quick measurement and comparison of two colours, without the need to create tolerances, or store data.

Special PROJECT Mode. Multiple color standards can be collected under an identified project as part of corporate color standards programs Pass/Fail Mode. Up to 1,024 standards with tolerances can be stored for easy pass/fail measurement
Wide Range of Aperture Sizes.To accommodate various measurement areas; available in 4mm, 8mm, and 14mm apertures Inter-Instrument Agreement.Superior agreement capabilities ensures integrity of multiple-instrument color control
Measuring Functions and Indices. Absolute and difference measurements are obtained for the following colorimetric systems, including: L*a*b*, ÄL*Äa*Äb•, L*c*h˚, ÄL•ÄC*ÄH*, ÄE*ab, ÄECMC, ÄE CIE94, XYZ, Whiteness and Yellowness per ASTM E313-98 Opacity, Color Strength and Shade Sorting. Device measures opacity, colour strength in chromatic, apparent, and tri-stimulus calculations, and 555 shade sorting for precise color control of products involving plastic, painted, or textile materials
Texture and Gloss Influence. To determine the influence of the specular component, the SP62 allows simultaneous measurement of both specular-included (colour) and specular-excluded (appearance) User-Friendly Ergonomics. A wrist strap and tactile side grips facilitate holding and a flip back target shoe adds flexibility
