The CM-26d is the next generation of portable sphere spectrophotometer with a horizontal alignment, a design convenient for measuring the color of flat or large samples and narrow spaces and easy operation by right or left handed users.
The CM-26d portable spectrophotometer offers unprecedented accuracy/inter-instrument agreement (IIA), usually reserved for laboratory-grade instrumentation. This precision will allow superior color communication throughout the supply chain from supplier to final assembly. The CM-26d has an IIA of 0.12 DE* (average of 12 BCRA tiles), which is approximately 40% better than its predecessor.
The CM-26d can switch between Ø8mm and Ø3mm measurement areas for measuring parts of different sizes. And is equipped with an illuminated viewfinder for accurate positioning on patterned subjects or small parts, and instrument surfaces which come in contact with the measurement subject are designed to minimize subject damage giving repeatable results.
With its lightweight ergonomic design, optional Bluetooth™ and high-resolution TFT color display, the CM-26d is perfectly suited for applications in the field. Being able to filter stored data based on additional information (tagging) as well as image-based workflows for easy and simple usage by operators with limited instrument experience, it sets a new standard for easy and fast data handling.
The CM-26d offers additional features to improve work flow, eliminate waste/rework, and offer customers general cost savings on color related processes. The new Job function allows for graphical representation/instructions for routine color measurements to be made within specific processes. Combined with a reduced measurement time, this allows users of all levels to maintain high levels of productivity, accuracy, and consistency. Also available as a free download is the CM-CT1 Configuration Tool software that allows users to create/write instrument settings as well as compile it into a file and share it within its supply chain to ensure instrument settings are consistent.
