    Color meter CM-12P for quality control

    PC software included / Li-ion battery / different color spaces / 

    determination of reference values and samples / white and black calibration

    The color meter CM-12P was developed for quality control and offers a high accuracy.

    When using the color meter, you can choose between different color spaces

    (CIE L*a*b*C*h, CIE L*a*b* and CIE XYZ). After a measurement with the color meter,

    the reading can be used as a reference value while other readings can be recorded as a sample

    and later be compared to the reference value easily. 

    In addition to the individual color space coordinates, the deviation between the reading is also displayed.

    When using the color meter, it is possible to store up to 100 reference values and up to 20,000 samples

    on the device. The measured data can also be transferred to a PC via the USB interface. A special PC software

    is included in the package.

    - CIE L*a*b*C*h, L*a*b* and XYZ
