Paint Test Equipment PCE-CSM 1 for quality control
PC software included / Li-ion battery / 3 different color spaces / D

etermination of reference values and samples / White and black calibration


The paint test equipment was developed for quality control and offers a very 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 paint test equipment, 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 paint test equipment, 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.
