Spectrophotometer CM-600d/700d/CM-600d

Portable Handheld Spectrophotometer With Vertical Alignment And Sphere Geometry

Konica Minolta  CM-700d spectrophotometer is built with wireless communication and color LCD screen offering excellent portability, perfectly suited for precise and repeated color measurements of shape and curves samples. With just a click, measurement data of specular component included (SCI) and excluded (SCE) are taken simultaneously to analyze the color and surface condition.

The spectrophotometer features a USB and a wireless data communication via BluetoothÍä as well as a large size color LCD screen for spectral graph, pseudocolor, color difference graph and numerical data display brings color measurement to level never experience before. In addition both the spectrophotometer has a large data memory capacity allows users to store up to 1000 targets and 4000 measurements set. With the “Auto Target” function, the instrument searches for the closest target to any measured color.

CM-700d spectrophotometer is designed with interchangeable dual target mask Ø3mm and 8mm measuring aperture to perfectly adapt to small to large samples size.

  • Eligible ISO 17025 Certification
  • Includes aperture size of 4mm, 8mm, and 25.4mm
  • Measures reflectance and transmittance to accurately evaluate opaque, transparent, translucent, and fluorescent samples small to large in size, including solids and liquids
  • Tight inter-instrument agreement measures consistently with other instruments of the same model, allowing color values and specifications to be communicated, shared, and coordinated throughout the supply chain
  • Numerical Gloss Control measures level of relative gloss for more control of a sample’s appearance
  • Conveniently measures SCE and SCI simultaneously for more consistent readings and to accommodate the surface conditions of each sample
  • Numerical UV Control performs measurements with and without UV simultaneously for more control of a sample’s appearance, particularly with optical brighteners
  • Built with a footprint about the size of an average laptop computer to easily fit in small spaces
  • Hand assembled with quality parts, making it durable and reliable to keep customer operations running as smooth as possible
  • USB connection conveniently allows users to connect to a PC or laptop
  • Conforms to international standards conforms to CIE, ISO, ASTM, DIN, and JIS measurement requirements
  • Integrates with SpectraMagic NX software for color quality control, as well as Colibri software for color formulation
