For Quick Color Comparisons

The X-Rite RM200QC Imaging Spectrocolorimeter simplifies color measurement from incoming material to outgoing product shipments in a portable unit that fits comfortably in your hand.

The RM200QC Imaging Spectrocolorimeter is designed to provide stable color comparisons for materials and products wherever color control is important. It is an elegant, portable instrument that fits comfortably in your hand or pocket to take with you wherever you go – from the quality control lab to the manufacturing floor to supplier inspections in the field.

Using this affordable instrument will boost your color quality when color requirements are too stringent to depend on visual evaluation alone. It is more accurate and reliable than other basic colorimeters and removes the uncertainty that can result when using color swatches as the final color comparison. This is due to the fact that everyone sees color differently, color perception is dependent on lighting conditions, and physical swatches can be damaged or deteriorate over time.


  • Achieve stable color quality throughout the entire quality control and manufacturing process, including field testing with third-party suppliers. 
  • Manage suppliers efficiently, ensuring that each adheres to a single standard.
  • Control variations between lab formulation, production, and final goods.
  • Control batch-to-batch variations during the manufacturing process, reducing waste and rework.
  • Eliminate issues related to staff experience; everyone uses the same device with an easy pass/fail indication based on approved standards.
This easy-to-use color measurement instrument delivers high reliability and accuracy, often eliminating the need for larger, more unwieldy instruments, especially for field applications. It is an exceptional tool that delivers accurate color data that takes the emotion out of color evaluation and helps gain faster customer approvals. With the RM200QC always in your pocket or purse, you’ll always be ready to accurately evaluate color – anytime, anywhere.

Storage Boxes and Fire Equipment Cabinets Are Not Equal

Jonesco Plastics had difficulty ensuring that the color of the plastic parts it manufactured was accurate. This often meant that items such as tool boxes might have had a slightly different shade between the box and its lid, which would have required remanufacture of the item.


"The RM200QC helps us to verify quickly and accurately that the output of the process is acceptable. If a recipe is incorrect, due to a whole host of reasons, we can make a change to the process much earlier than running 30 or 40 pieces before we discover the error." - Rob Mayor, Quality Manager

“Not only has the X-Rite RM200QC given us an objective basis for managing product color, but it has also taken the subjectivity out of discussions around the color of ingredients and final products, it has been a game changer for us.” - Dr. David Vollmer, Vice President of Analytical & Quality Services

“This device is a marvelous tool to assist in our worldwide control of color. It gives accurate color measurements that are accepted by both the U.S. and Chinese teams as an unbiased standard, so we can make decisions quickly to maintain customer satisfaction and introduce more colors to our product line with confidence.” - Tony Yan, Tech Manager
