  •                Color meter CM-16P for quality control PC software included /

    Li-ion battery / different color spaces / black and white calibration determination

            of reference values and samples / white calibration / 3.5" touch screen


    The color meter CM-16P was developed for quality control, offers a high accuracy and comes with a 3.5" touch screen display. When using the color meter, you can choose between different color spaces (CIE LAB, XYZ, Yxy, LCh, LUV, LAB&WI&YI). 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 1000 reference values and up to 25000 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.
