For Reflectance and Transmission Measurement

The X-Rite Ci7600 is a mid-range benchtop spectrophotometer ideal for color quality control, improving the measurement, management, communication and reporting of color.

Process Control for Perfect Color

Ensuring that color is right the first time, right every time means reduced rejects, rework and waste in a color-critical supply chain for both production and quality control. When combined with NetProfiler and Color iQC software, the Ci7600 delivers a complete color measurement and management solution for quality control professionals that is stable, delivers true consistency and is easier to service than any other benchtop sphere spectrophotometer in the market today. In addition, by using Pantone digital color references from the Pantone Digital Industrial Libraries with X-Rite Color iQC quality control software, operators can confidently begin production without waiting for physical standards to arrive.

The Ci7600 is designed with standards compliance in mind, including ASTM E3098 and CIE guidelines. Its internal temperature and humidity sensors record conditions each time a sample is measured for complete track and trace. Optional UV balancing is available for advanced fluorescent and optical brightener control in paper, textiles, plastics and paint & coatings. It delivers excellent inter-instrument agreement with an SCI of 0.15. And you can count on the Ci7600 for an exceptional ability to repeat identical measurements with an 0.03 delta E.


  • Fits seamlessly into operational and data environments including the ability to conform to legacy data formats.
  • Automated, software-driven set-up delivers consistent configuration across all locations. Its easy-to-read LED screen ensures operator ease of use.
  • Includes three transmission apertures, five reflectance apertures and three optional automated UV filters. The measurement lens zooms automatically when the aperture is changed.
  • Complete audit trail and internal humidity and temperature sensors ensure accurate track and trace for all measurement.
  • Compliant with industry standards, including CIE No. 15, ASTM D1003, ASTM E1164, DIN 5033 Teil 7, JIS Z 8722, ISO 7724/1.

Automated instrument setup takes the guesswork out of instrument configuration and eliminates potential for error. The Ci7600 performs fast, simultaneous SPIN/SPEX measurements to determine sample gloss levels. And its unprecedented audit trail includes device condition, sample image, and measurement parameters for each sample at the time of measurement. Its multiple aperture design accommodates measurement of complicated samples, and it is capable of performing both reflectance and transmission measurements.
