Portable Spectrophotometer - Spectro-Guide 45/0 Gloss
Total Appearance Control – color and gloss in one unit

The overall appearance of a product is influenced by color and gloss. A sample of the same color but higher gloss level is visually perceived darker and more saturated than a low gloss sample. In order to get a uniform appearance, both attributes need to be controlled. The spectro-guide spectrophotometer is unique as it measures both attributes simultaneously. Thus, the cause of a mismatch can be clearly defined in any situation.

  • Color (45/0 or sphere) and 60° gloss are displayed at the same time
  • In compliance with international specifications
  • Tolerances for color and gloss allow quick pass/fail decisions in production
Easy to use and handle

The spectro-guide spectrophotometer makes quality control simple and secure – even for color beginners. Thanks to the intuitive pulldown menu and the four-cursor button operation, quality control has never been easier.

  • Light weight and small size – weighs only 500 g
  • Ergonomic design – can easily measure difficult to access areas
  • Designated buttons for standard and sample readings
  • Customization of the display to your needs
Highly repeatable on textured surfaces

The key criterion for a 45/0 instrument is a circumferential illumination. spectro-guide 45/0 is using a unique, patented measurement principle to achieve a 100% circumferential illumination. A white coated hemisphere acts as a mixing chamber and guarantees completely uniform illumination. Thus, any influence of measurement direction is eliminated and excellent repeatability even on highly textured surfaces is guaranteed.

Always precise color values

With the new spectro-guide spectrophotometer you can measure any color: dark – brilliant – steep reflectance curves. The 10 nm spectral resolution not only ensures highly precise color results, but also an excellent agreement with competitive color instruments – even bench-top units. Additionally, a patented illumination control provides temperature independent results – even in extreme conditions.

Always ready to use

Economical and reliable operation of a spectrophotometer is often taken as given. spectro-guide guarantees superior accuracy for many years and low maintenance efforts.

  • Long lasting standard AA batteries – up to 8,000 reading per set
  • 10 year warranty on the light source – no lamp changes needed
  • Rugged and compact design
  • Stable, long-term calibration – needed only every three months

Portable Spectrophotometer - Spectro-Guide Gloss S
Color and Gloss Control of automotive interior parts

Most people consider color and gloss harmony of the car interior to be a key item when judging the perceived quality of a vehicle. Consequently, the quality requirements for the interior design of a car have increased over the last years. A variety of materials are used and need to be harmonized. To achieve a uniform look among the interior trim parts, very tight tolerances are specified. Only instruments with excellent precision are able to objectively control the production.

The new spectro-guide S family offers improved technical performance for 60° gloss in the low gloss range 0 - 10 GU. The excellent repeatability of ± 0.1 can be guaranteed due to a patented calibration procedure. In addition, the spectro-guide S spectrophotometer offers unique benefits to always guarantee precise results:

  • Highly repeatable results independent of measuring direction due to a patented, true circumferential illumination
  • Long-term stable calibration – needed only every three months
  • Temperature stable color and gloss data between 10 - 40°C
  • 10 year warranty on the light source
  • 10 nm resolution for precise readings on brilliant and dark colors
  • Professional documentation with easy-link software

Color-guide Color Measurement for Specific Applications

Color Control of Small Parts

Keyboards, pens and window handles require a color instrument with a very small aperture and a repeatable sample placement. color-guide 45/0, 4 mm aperture together with the optional sample holder guarantee repeatable results and a convenient sample placement.Minimum sample size: 5 x 5 mm (0.2 x 0.2 in)

Color Control of Powdered Material

When measuring powdery or granular material like raw material pucks or grainy food, the instrument's optics must be protected. The color-guide spectrophotometer with glass sealed aperture uses a colorless, optical glass and can directly measure such products, thus saving sample preparation time.

Color Control – Easy and Secure
  • Easy to use and handle – even for color beginners
  • Stable, long-term calibration – needed only every three months
  • Highly temperature stable – even in extreme conditions
  • Uses standard AA batteries – good for 10,000 readings
  • 10 year warranty on light source – no lamp changes needed
  • Light weight and small size – only weighs 500 g
