spectro-guide ColorControl

Color Control of solid colors

Total Appearance Control

Color and Gloss in one

The spectro-guide simultaneously measures color and gloss. Thus, the cause of a visual mismatch can be clearly defined.


  • Color and 60° gloss are displayed at the same time
  • In compliance with international specifications
  • Tolerances for color and gloss allow quick pass/fail decisions

Reliable data at any time

BYK LED Technology

spectro-guide guarantees superior accuracy for many years and low maintenance efforts.


  • Stable, long-term calibration – needed only every three months
  • Temperature stable color and gloss data between 10 - 40°C
  • Long lasting standard AA batteries – up to 8,000 readings per set
  • 10 year warranty on the light source – no lamp changes needed
