Color Plot Spectrocolorimeter

Portable Imaging Spectrocolorimeter

Color Plot Spectrocolorimeter

The Color Plot Imaging Spectrocolorimeter bridges the gap between color appearance and material - from incoming material batches to outgoing product shipments - in an elegant, portable unit that fits comfortably in your hand.

The Color Plot is lightweight, easy to handle and comes ready to use. In barely more than a second you get a reading on your sample and a report that tells you how close your color is to a measured standard. That’s it. You won’t need to connect to a software program; it’s all right at hand.

The Color Plot is designed to provide stable color comparisons for materials and products wherever color control is important. Here are just a few of the industries where Color Plot makes a difference:
Color Plot Spectrocolorimeter Applications
  • Appliances & Housewares
  • Building Materials
  • Consumer Electronics
  • Food and Baked Products
  • Apparel/Textiles
  • Soft & Hard Home Products
  • Toys
  • Accessories
  • Plastics
  • Paints & Coatings


Build a Complete Color Program

For the ultimate in performance, the Color Plot is ideal for use with Munsell/Pantone color standards. The production of these standards requires tight manufacturing tolerances, promoting a synchronous relationship between visual and measured results of color evaluation at any location. This, in turn, provides the consistency needed to maintain an accurate, reliable color program.
Color Plot Spectrocolorimeter Color Program
  Quickly and easily measure and compare samples with intuitive user interface.

Create and store up to 20 standards using the averaging function for highest accuracy. Measure samples and display Pass/Fail warnings. Save up to 350 samples with voice or text tags. Simple to understand color plot shows the difference between standard and sample.  
Color Plot Spectrocolorimeter Color Program
  Color Plot provides accurate L*a*b*C*H* standard, sample and color difference values.

Verbal color descriptions help to understand and describe the direction of color difference. Gray Scale and Strength functions are included for textile assessment. Color Plot offers superior ergonomics for this application and improved performance (compared to visual evaluation). On board Opacity measurement provides accurate and flexible functionality for coatings and plastics.  

The Color Plot automatically creates conformance reports in PDF and Excel formats, for the stored samples against each standard. These can be output to a computer or directly to a compatible printer (Printers supporting USB Memory stick with PDF file type). Color Plot Spectrocolorimeter Sample Report


Increased Quality Control

The Color Plot allows you to measure up to 20 reference standards and store these on the device, each date and time stamped with the option to name them using the onscreen keyboard. A maximum of 350 sample measurements can be stored on the device and compared to the reference standards. Test results are easily seen with:

• Graphical Pass/Fail indicator
• Display of dE for all common methods i.e. CIELAB, CMC, CIE 94, 2000
• Display of measured and delta differences with L*a*b*C*hº for standard and sample
• Graphical L*a*b* plot
• Verbal color difference description

Tagging your samples whether using the onscreen keyboard for text or the built-in voice recorder makes it easy to identify your measurements.

If you need a more in-depth report, Color Plot automatically creates PDF and CSV files that can be
accessed on your computer with the device set in the “USB Report Mode”. It’s as simple as plugging
in a memory stick!


Quick Responsive Tools

When you want just a quick check, Color Plot provides:

  • “Color Compare” automated measurement for standard and sample comparison.
  • “Opacity Check” measurement function to control the covering power of coatings.
  • “Gray Scale” measurement for stain and color change assessment on textiles. Color Plot offers superior ergonomics for this application (compared to a benchtop spectrophotometer measurement), and improved performance (compared to visual evaluation).
  • “Strength” measurement for any manufacturing process that requires control and adjustment of
    color component strength.
