Model #: ci62-rl


For Large Aperture Retail Paint Measurement

Designed for anti-graffiti use and outdoor surfaces, the Ci62L+RTL handheld sphere spectrophotometer features a large aperture and smart averaging for fast, accurate color matching.

Simple workflow. Outstanding results.

Finding the right color match to cover unsightly graffiti or paint other outdoor surfaces can be challenging. The Ci62L+RTL handheld sphere spectrophotometer has been specifically designed for use by anti-graffiti workers and for other activities requiring the painting of outdoor surfaces, such as stucco and concrete. It provides more accurate measurements due to its larger aperture, and smart averaging delivers a faithful representation of color on rough or textured surfaces.

Software capabilities allow for easy storage and retrieval of up to 4,000 samples, as well as comparisons between original walls and repaired areas for quality control. With this capability, the Ci62L+RTL can be used to quickly determine the best match for painting over graffiti, providing the paint color closest to the color of the original wall, and ensuring that the final work meets specifications.


  • Simple, intuitive user interface and paint matching workflow requires minimal training.
  • 14mm measurement area is ideal for accurate measurement of rough or textured surfaces.
  • The compare feature allows operators to quickly determine the best area to match.
  • Provides data for tracking and quality control to ensure that results comply with specifications; stored samples make it fast and easy to retrieve data for frequently used or standard colors.

The Ci62L+RTL spectrophotometer with ColorDesigner PLUS software is a complete, closed-loop system for determining the best paint mix to cover graffiti or paint other outdoor surfaces. It delivers fast, accurate results that save time and money, reduce rejects and rework, and give operators the confidence to quickly move through their paint matching tasks.
