Product Description



Portable color measurement instruments include colorimeters and spectrophotometers. Colorimeters use color sensors to measure colors; because of the huge error, colorimeters are not desired in applications. Now, most national and international leading instrument companies have stopped advertising for colorimeters.

Spectrophotometers use spectral analysis to measure the color of objects. They are high accuracy and super stability.


Pigment, Paint, Print, Food, Textile, Dye, Plastic, Chemical, etc. Please inquire us for more details.




1).Uses CLEDs light source – spectrally balanced LED light source
LED light source that has balanced intensity across visible spectrum avoids the spectral deficiency in certain parts of the spectrum in common white LEDs, which guarantees the speed and accuracy of the measurement results.

2).ETC Every Test calibration technology
Currently, most instruments use standard white boards for calibration. When white board is damaged, the instrument’s accuracy or precision can not be guaranteed. Our spectrophotometers use innovative ETC(Every Test Calibration); standard white board is included in the optical system, and therefore has reliable accuracy and repeatability for every measurement.

3).Automatic gloss compensation technology
Different gloss or different instrument’s light source or observe angles greatly affects the measurement of color. The automatic gloss compensation technology guarantees the accuracy of color measurement data for surfaces of different gloss. This research finding is published in international leading SCI included journal Optik.

4).Innovative light splitting SCS optical engine
Adopt innovative single-grating-dual-light-paths light splitting system SCS optical engine which creates the best measurement repeatability for portable spectrophotometers, and guarantees accurate measurement of materials surface color.

5).Camera view, can accurately see the region being tested
In previous measurement instrument, we can only aim at the testing area approximately, and it may introduce errors. Our new spectrophotometers include a camera, so the user can clearly see the testing area to avoid measurement errors.

6). Free Color QC Software
Our spectrophotometer comes with free color QC software, which is applicable in various industries’ quality control and management of color data. It turns color into numerical data, compares color differences, generate testing reports. provides measurement data under different color spaces and customizes color management for each customers.

7).The most complete and color indicators in similar instruements.
Comparing with similar products, our spectrophotometers offer 28 kinds of standard light sources and 40 measurement color value indicators; It can also customize measurement methods according to your requirement to satisfy all your color measurement needs.
8).Optional color matching software and find color components quickly
This color matching software is widely used in industries such as paint, plastic, ink, weaving, printing, paper, glass, cosmetics, dental care and other color related industries. Software offers a complete color management platform, which includes color matching, save fixes, color matching formulas and quality control. We offer customers more practical color management plans according to the production and working processes of the customers. Computer optimized calculations can help the customers to save time and raw materials.
