Oct '15
Marketer of colour management solutions and colour communication technology Datacolor has launched its Datacolor 800 and 500 series of spectrophotometers.

According to a Datacolor press release, the series includes Datacolor 850, Datacolor 800, Datacolor 550, and Datacolor 500.

“It is a family of fully backward compatible benchtops, complete with its new embedded processor and data storage,” Datacolor stated.

“They provide a platform for increased efficiency and color measurement confidence, while delivering on Datacolor's hallmark performance and precision,” the company said.

Both the 800 and 500 families feature a new colour LCD screen that displays calibration status and instrument settings to allow for greater confidence in measurement results.

“With an embedded processor, the health of the instruments can now easily be validated through remote diagnostics, allowing for faster issue resolution,” Datacolor explained.

Instrument accessibility has also been expanded with the introduction of an Ethernet port, allowing for simultaneous connection of multiple computers.

“Performance enhancements have been implemented as well to enable real-time sample measurement within a global Citrix or Terminal Server environment,” it informed.

“The introduction of the 800 and 500 families carries on Datacolor's tradition of providing our customers with technology enhancements,” said Diane Geisler, global director of product management, Datacolor.

“With a clear understanding that accuracy and backward compatibility are required, we focused on improving the usability of our benchtop instrument creating quantifiable improvements in throughput,” she added.

Datacolor provides sales, service and support in over 65 countries throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia and serves the textile and apparel, paint and coatings, automotive, plastics and microscopy industries. (AR)
