Paint Testing Equipment with Bluetooth interface / Pass-fail function
Approx. 10,000 measurements per battery charge / Wavelength range 400 ... 700 nm /
Measured value memory / Color ranges CIE-LAB, CIE-LCh, HunterLab, CIE-Luv, XYZ, RGB

The paint testing equipment is designed to carry out fast and precise color measurements of surfaces. The color ranges CIE-LAB, CIE-LCh, HunterLab, CIE-Luv, XYZ, RGB of the color can be determined with the paint testing equipment. An LED with a wavelength of 400 ... 700 nm is built into the paint testing equipment as a light source. The measuring opening of the paint testing equipment is Ø8 mm. Despite its compact design, the paint testing equipment has a repeatability of ΔE* from ≤0.1.

In addition to normal color measurement, the paint testing equipment can also determine color differences. For this purpose, a reference measurement is first carried out with the paint testing equipment on any reference. Then measurements can be carried out on test objects with the paint tetsing equipment. The paint tetsing equipment in turn shows the difference between the reference and the test item. A permissible tolerance can also be stored in the paint tetsing equipment. If the tolerance is adhered to, this is indicated by a green display on the paint tetsing equipment. If the measured color is outside the tolerance, this is indicated by the paint tetsing equipment with a red display.

A connection to an Android capable device can be established with the Bluetooth interface. The free app for the paint tetsing equipment can be downloaded from the Play Store. Measurement parameters can be changed from the app to the paint tetsing equipment. In addition, the measurement can be carried out via the app. The measurement result is then displayed directly in the app. Thus, for example, measurement comparisons can be carried out via the app to the paint tetsing equipment. If measured values ​​are saved on the paint tetsing equipment, they can be read out via the app.

The paint tetsing equipment  is therefore used, for example, in quality control in a print shop to check the print result or in the automotive industry to check the paint that has been sprayed on. The battery life of the paint tetsing equipment is approx. 10,000 measurements. If the battery is discharged, it can be recharged in the paint tetsing equipment via the USB-C interface.
