Spectrophotometer PCE-CSM 7
Automatic black and white calibration / Rechargeable battery / PC software included

PCE-CSM 7 is a portable Spectrophotometer used to measure different spectral parameters. This user-friendly, ergonomically designed Spectrophotometer automatically performs a white and black calibration when powered on. Suitable for manufacturing quality control and assurance as well as product research and development, the Spectrophotometer offers impressive measuring accuracy and comes manufacturer calibrated. An optional ISO calibration certificate can be acquired as an accessory for an additional fee. Useful for determining color difference, chromaticity index, color sample database management, and color difference cumulative analysis. Integrated camera/illumination locating for small samples.

When using the color meter, different color spaces can be selected (CIEL*a*b*C*h*, CIEL*a*b*, CIEXYZ, CIERGB, CIEL*u*v*, CIEL*C*h + Yellowness + Whiteness + Color Fastness). The color meter also offers two different measuring apertures (Ø 4 mm and Ø 8 mm) for different applications. In addition to the individual color space coordinates, deviations between readings are displayed. For example, after taking a measurement with the PCE-CSM 7, a reading can be saved and used as a standard reference value against which other readings can be compared. Up to 100 reference values and up to 20,000 samples can be stored to the internal memory of the Spectrophotometer. The measured data can be transferred to a PC via USB and analyzed using the included PC-compatible software.
