Spectral Color Meter for RGB or HSL/ with two variations: for direct data transmission or handheld with optional software and RS-232 interface

The RGB Color Meter is based on a very accurate and modern microprocessor based system which operates according to the spectral method. A defined source of light illuminates the sample and the light is reflected by the surface and is measured by the spectral mode and the result is shown on the display of the RGB 2 Color Meter. This device can also take a relative measurement of a luminous surfaces, such as an LCD. The results taken by the RGB 2 Color Meter are shown on the display, but can also be transferred to a computer for later analysis by using optional software and RS-232 connector. The application uses of the device are quite extensive. It can be used in quality control for colors in production, for receipt and verification of colors being received by shipping in QM and QA systems according to DIN EN ISO 9000, for checking color distances in color tests, for color standards such as in measuring an absolute color value.
