The PCE CSM 7 3 light source Color Meter is portable and used to measure different spectral parameters. This user-friendly, ergonomically designed device automatically performs a white and black calibration when powered on. Suitable for manufacturing quality control as well as product research and development, the color meter offers impressive measuring accuracy and comes manufacturer calibrated. An optional ISO calibration certificate can be acquired for an additional fee. Useful for determining color difference, chromaticity index, color sample database management, and color difference cumulative analysis. Integrated camera and illumination locating helpful for small samples.

Manufacturers depend on the quality of their products, so to achieve and observe the optical requirements, our portable color meter features the best reliability. When high quantities of goods are produced, all products should have the same look; therefore, the portable color meter facilitates this job and protects the manufacturer against any expensive failures. It does not matter what product it is, because our portable color meter encapsulates a big color gamut for required measurements. The measurements can be analyzed with our provided software.
