Color Meter PCE-CSM 20
High-quality spectrophotometer / 
Powerful lithium-ion battery / Single or average value measurement / 
Evaluation via SW over USB / 4-color LED as light source

PCE-CSM 20 is a handheld spectrophotometer / colorimeter used for high-quality color measurement. Featuring a single 8 mm aperture and including SCI and SCE specular modes for industrial color measuring applications, the PCE-CSM 20 offers a long battery life, 4-color lamp and an easy-to-use portable design. The powerful battery allows up to 5000 measurements. The lighting used on the spectrometer is designed to carry out three million measurements. Camera/illumination locating for small samples.

The high-quality processing of the spectrophotometer is very fast. The ability to choose aperture size and light source allows the user to discriminate between colors that may look the same. Four color space choices allow the user to choose the best color for their samples. The 256 image element double array CMOS imager allows measurement from 400 to 700 nm in 10 nm increments. The measured data can be transmitted to a computer via included USB. Sophisticated analysis software is also included in the delivery contents.
