spectro-guide sphere 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 is unique as it measures color and gloss 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 - DIN approval for gloss measurement " Tolerances for color and gloss allow quick pass/fail decisions in production."

Easy-to-use and handle The spectro-guide makes quality control simple and secure,  even for color beginners. Thanks to the Windows-like pulldown menu and the four cursor button operation, quality control has never been easier. " Light weight and small size:  only weighs 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 criteria for a 45/0 instrument is a circumferential illumination. spectro-guide 45/0 is the only instrument with a 100% circumferential illumination by using a unique, patented measurement principle. 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. Spectro-guide sphere uses the well-known sphere principle for diffuse illumination.

Always precise color values With the new spectro-guide, you can measure any colors: 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  also in extreme conditions.


Always ready to use Economical and reliable operation of a color instrument is often taken as a given. spectro-guide guarantees superior accuracy for many years and low maintenance efforts."Long lasting standard AA batteries up to 10,000 readings 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. Technical data same as color-guide, only 10 nm dat.
