The Revolution in Color Measurement: spectro2guide
Color. Gloss. Fluorescence.
The spectro2guide spectrophotometer represents the next step in the evolution of color measurement. Color and 60° gloss are measured simultaneously. Completely new is the prediction of color stability by measuring like a fluorimeter with monochrome illuminations.
Raise your expectations: spectro2guide ensures color harmony and analyzes color stability - objective measurement results for today and the future.
Excited. Emitted. Shifted.
The combination of a spectrophotometer with a fluorimeter opens up completely new perspectives to control color harmony and guarantee color stability.
The new index DFl is a measure for the amount of fluorescent light – important to know as sunlight exposure can cause color fading. In addition, the new DEzero predicts the color change of a sample pair after the fluorescence has degraded.
Our vision has always been to create a high-tech color instrument to guarantee a top performance, but at the same time follow our customers’ wish to “Keep it Simple”. By “thinking-out-of-the-box” and working with new and innovative technologies from Design to R&D to Production that vision is now reality with the spectro2guide.
Digital Standards. Superior Performance.
A superior accuracy and excellent inter-instrument agreement allow use of digital standards. One binding reference eliminates sources of error and physical standards no longer need to be exchanged.
Thus, color control data are reliable and communication among all parties is seamless and efficient.
Digital standards bring the complete supply chain on target.
High-tech. Smart. Experienced.
The spectro2guide uses innovative, high performance LED technology as light source. Smart testing combined with our long-standing experience guarantees an outstanding performance.
Short-term, long-term and temperature stability as well as a homogeneous illumination spot are unsurpassed in the industry.
The long life time of our LEDs, guaranteed for 10 years, ensure low maintenance - no lamp replacement needed.
“One of the biggest challenges was the positioning of the calibration standard. As an absolute novelty we mounted it into the docking station to be protected and to guarantee reliable readings with automatic calibration.”
Heinrich Henssler, Head Designer – Henssler & Schultheiss
Swipe. Touch. Measure.
As for mobile phones, there is a trend towards ever-larger displays. The spectro2guide is completely in line with this trend offering a 3.5” color touchscreen – the largest on the market.
An icon-based menu, colorful data tables and graphics ensure an intuitive smart phone like operation.
You can touch or swipe with your fingers - it even works when wearing gloves.
Strike. Score. Save.
An integrated camera shows a live preview of the measurement spot. To ensure precise positioning and to prevent false readings on imperfections or scratches, the measurement spot is magnified by a factor of 5:1.
It is so easy – just press the measurement button halfway and the live preview is active.
Color control of cosmetic products is a challenge as they are available in liquid, pasty and powdery form.
Check out our variety of cosmetic sample holders to standardize your sample preparation.
Park. Charge. Control.
Accurate readings require reliable calibration.
As first spectrophotometer on the market, the spectro2guide offers auto diagnosis and an automatic calibration function.
The spectro2guide with the docking station make a perfect couple – the white calibration standard is always protected and a reliable calibration is guaranteed.
Moreover, the docking station automatically charges the instrument.
Big Data. Easy. Automated
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.
Data is transferred via USB or WiFi.
