As the iCPlate2 calibration is done automatically, no calibration or “zeroing” on the plate is needed. After inputting into the device the appropriate settings, measurements can be executed without any further calibration.
A zeroing on the plate is however required for the “Visual Coverage” value. This zeroing is done by a measurement on the medium (e.g. plate ground).
To check the absolute accuracy of the iCPlate2, X-Rite offers the iCPlate2 Target. With the help of this tool, the device can be checked and calibrated.
