Spectrophotometer PCE-CSM 20
High-quality spectrophotometer / 
Powerful lithium-ion battery / Single or average value measurement / 
Evaluation via software / 4 color LED as light source

PCE-CSM 20 is a handheld spectrophotometer 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, a long life 4-color lamp and an easy-to-use portable design. Camera/illumination locating for small samples.

The high-quality processing of the spectrophotometer is very fast. Whilst working with the spectrometer the high measuring accuracy of the device is important. In production grade and quality assurance, a spectrophotometer is often used. Here it is important that a constant quality is always produced and that individual parts not only look similar, but look identical. For this, a high measurement quality is of great importance. Depending on the model, the measured data can be transmitted to a computer via included USB. Appropriate software is also included in the delivery contents.
