Our colorimeter is a portable multifunctional colorimeter with D/8° (SCI) optical geometry design. The color analyzer is equipped with a 3.5-inch IPS color capacitive touch screen, which has an excellent operating experience. The colorimeter integrates multiple natural color charts, which can quickly match the measured color to the closest color codes. The color difference meter also has a color difference comparison function, supports a variety of standard color addition methods, the color difference threshold can be set. The color difference formula can be flexibly selected, which can realize rapid QC testing. 


Please watch the video as above to learn more about features and operation.


The colorimeter usually used in paint, metal, stone, ceramic tiles and plastics industries for color measurement and management, color difference quality control. It is illuminated by an integrating sphere diffused light source, which is very suitable for color measurement of high-gloss samples.
