Color meter PCE-CSM 8 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 and spectrophotometer PCE-CSM 8 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, and LUV) and 45/0 optics angle. After a measurement with the color meter, the reading can be used as a named reference value while other readings can be recorded as a sample and later be compared to the reference value easily for Pass/Fail determination. 

In addition to the individual color space coordinates, the deviation between the reading (delta E) is also displayed. When using the color meter, it is possible to store up to 1000 reference values and up to 10,000 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.
