Model #: ci52
Ci52 Sphere Spectrophotometer
The Ci52 is an affordable, versatile sphere spectrophotometer for consistent measurement of color and appearance for a wide range of materials, ideal for quality control applications.
Versatile color measurement for quality control
Looking for a fast, affordable quality control tool to monitor batch-to-batch variations and inconsistencies between customer specifications and production output? Need a way to speed up the creation and approval of samples?
- Large target window for ease of measuring larger objects or samples.
- Easy to operate. Its ‘close and play’ operation, supported by an LED visual and audible status indicators are ideal for operators at all skill levels.
- Fast, accurate reads with a measurement time of 2 seconds on standard flat samples and complex shapes.
- Simultaneous measurement of both specular-included (color) and specular-excluded (appearance) to determine influence of specular components and deliver accurate color and appearance data.
- On-board NetProfiler system optimizes instrument performance and allows for remote certification, ensuring the instrument is always accurate with up-to-date calibration. Delivers good inter-instrument agreement with other X-Rite color measurement instruments.
