The instrument is a smart colorimeter to provide color scan and color comparison for materials. It complies with relevant international CIE standards equipped with a high-precision sensor and adopts D/8 illumination geometry. With good consistency and repeatability, the colorimeter is capable of connecting with a mobile app for accurate color measurement and quality control. Using our colorimeter will boost your color quality when color requirements are too stringent to depend on visual evaluation alone.



As a portable colorimeter, the colorimeter is widely used in car paint spraying, plastics, metal, hardware, furniture industry, rubber and other fields.
