spectro2guide Color Control Handheld Spectrophotometer

The Revolution in Color Measurement: spectro2guide

Handheld Spectrophotometer Revolutionizes Color Control

Color, Gloss, Fluorescence, Jetness with Highest Performance

The spectro2guide is the only portable spectrophotometer on the market that not only combines color measurement with a 60° gloss meter, but also offers an integrated portable fluorimeter. This opens up completely new perspectives to not only control color harmony, but also to analyze the long-term color stability with measurement of fluorescence. The spectro2guide Pro version additionally shows an outstanding technical performance to accurately measure black and describe its undertones no matter how deep black the color might be. The new spectro2go XS with a reduced measuring aperture (Ø 5 mm) for color quality control of small parts now completes the family.

What they all have in common is the innovative, high performance LED technology used as light sources. As a result, a superior accuracy and excellent inter-instrument agreement allow the use of digital standards.

Handheld Spectrophotometer with Built-in Fluorimeter

Prediction of Color Stability 

The impact of fluorescence on your color data is dependent on type and age of light source used. Therefore, you will get different results on fluorescent samples with different type of color meter. The spectro2guide is the only color meter guaranteeing repeatable results that correlate with the visual perception under any illuminant. 

The combination of a handheld spectrophotometer with a fluorimeter opens up the possibility to control color harmony, identify fluorescence and even predict color change due to fluorescence decay

Handheld Spectrophotometer Operates Like a Smartphone

Brilliant Color Display

The portable spectro2guide offers an optimal space for the icon-based menu on its large 3.5-inch color touchscreen. Color data tables and graphics provide intuitive, smartphone-like operation. Operation is by touch or swipe, and it even works with gloves on.


Handheld Spectrophotometer Performs Auto Diagnosis

Calibration Always Guaranteed 

As first handheld spectrophotometer on the market, the spectro2guide comes complete with a docking station offering an auto diagnosis and an automatic calibration reminder. 

This is made possible by the built-in white checking standard, which is well protected in the docking station. Moreover, the docking station automatically charges the instrument.

Handheld Spectrophotometer with Integrated Camera

Live View of Measurement Spot

A live preview of the measurement spot ensures precise positioning and prevents false readings on imperfections or scratches.

The measuring spot is enlarged by a factor of 5:1 to ensure that not a single speck of dust remains hidden. Just press the measurement button halfway and the live preview is active.




Handheld Spectrophotometer and smart-chart Software

Color Control made easy even with BIG DATA

smart-chart offers an online mode for instant data analysis - ideal for use in the lab.
The readings are displayed in a data table with Pass/Fail information and shown in scatter or line graphs. Any color equation can be selected for single or multiple illuminants (metamerism).

For routine process control data are saved in a database and efficiently analyzed with easy filtering and trend charts.
