CHROMA METER CR-400

CR-400
KONICA MINOLTA CHROMA METER CR-400

User-friendly, Portable Colorimeter With Unmatched Ruggedness & Application Flexibility

Chroma meter CR-400 is the successor to CR-300.  It is more compact, more powerful and versatile then ever. The CR-400 measurement head can perform measurement without connecting to the data processor DP-400. Full data compatability with the CR-300. What’s more, you can connect the measurement head directly to a PC by simply install the optional software and your PC can function as the data processor.

Konica Minolta CR-400 offer enhanced usability and functionality such as re-designed data process featuring a large backlit LCD screen for numerical or graphic display or measurement data, several new color spaces and PASS/FAIL formulas as well as indices for whiteness and yellowness enhance the usage into various filed of application. The new “user indices” function allows the input of up to 6 different user or application specific equations using XYZ, Yxy or CIELAB values. In addition it has larger memory storage capacity can store up to 100 targets and 2000 measurement.

The CR-400 has many accessories available to accomodate various types of application including powder, paste and opaque liquid samples.

APPLICATIONS:
Food | Plastic | Automotive | Ceramic | Surimi | Furniture | Textile | Coating | Paint etc.

Chroma Meter CR-400

  • Easy-to-use – easy-to-understand menus and buttons
  • Portable – can be battery powered for optimal portability, or use an AC adapter, take measurements anywhere thanks to its light-weight design
  • Data processor – measuring head can measure alone or with the data processor, allowing advanced features to be used and labeling on-site is easy with the built-in high-speed printer
  • User defined evaluation formulas – allows users to configure the color calculation formula and evaluation formula as desired; useful for customized or industry-specific formulas
  • Easy to upgrade – the successor to, and compatible with, its predecessor, the CR-300
  • LCD screen – capable of displaying pass/fail information and color-difference graphs
  • Text entry – data processor allows the user to enter calibration channels and the names of color difference target colors, as well as input comments
  • Six languages – English, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, French, and German
  • Stores Measurements – can store up to 1,000 measurements on its own, or 2,000 when the data processor is attached
  • Calibration function – when the instrument needs to be calibrated it automatically notifies user
  • Abundant accessories – many available accessories
