The colorimeter is designed to carry out fast and precise color measurements of surfaces. The color ranges CIE-LAB, CIE-LCh, HunterLab, CIE-Luv, XYZ, RGB of the color can be determined with the colorimeter. An LED with a wavelength of 400 ... 700 nm is built into the colorimeter as a light source. The measuring opening of the colorimeter is Ø8 mm. Despite its compact design, the colorimeter has a repeatability of ΔE* from ≤0.1.

In addition to normal color measurement, the colorimeter can also determine color differences. For this purpose, a reference measurement is first carried out with the colorimeter on any reference. Then measurements can be carried out on test objects with the colorimeter. The colorimeter in turn shows the difference between the reference and the test item. A permissible tolerance can also be stored in the colorimeter. If the tolerance is adhered to, this is indicated by a green display on the colorimeter. If the measured color is outside the tolerance, this is indicated by the colorimeter with a red display.

A connection to an Android capable device can be established with the Bluetooth interface. The free app for the colorimeter can be downloaded from the Play Store. Measurement parameters can be changed from the app to the colorimeter. In addition, the measurement can be carried out via the app. The measurement result is then displayed directly in the app. Thus, for example, measurement comparisons can be carried out via the app to the colorimeter. If measured values ​​are saved on the colorimeter, they can be read out via the app.

The colorimeter is therefore used, for example, in quality control in a print shop to check the print result or in the automotive industry to check the paint that has been sprayed on. The battery life of the colorimeter is approx. 10,000 measurements. If the battery is discharged, it can be recharged in the colorimeter via the USB-C interface.
