Portable spectrophotometers to share colour standards

Dec '08
Datacolor, a global leader in digital color management technology, today announced it is introducing a new line of portable sphere spectrophotometers with Wifi and Bluetooth capabilities to allow users to share color standards and measurements everywhere they do business including remote job sites, factories, or from their vehicles.

The new Datacolor Check II, Check II Plus, and Check II Pro have the ability to store up to 30,000 measurements and organize them in its industry-unique folder system by customer, color, or process. The highly-accurate Check II system works in tandem with all of Datacolor's benchtop-series spectrophotometers including the Datacolor 600 and Datacolor 650 used by Master Batchers and Textile Dye Houses around the world.

The Datacolor Check II-series portable spectrophotometers offer a number of new benefits and features ideal for technicians and colorists who work in the field or need to follow stringent industry standards and codes. Features include Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Data Transfer; on-board Palm T/X with touch-screen stylus interface; three methods of 555 Shade Sorting (L*a*b*, LCh, and CMC) for easy sorting of fabric lots; Chinese Language OS and input; and LRV measurements for UK building standard BS 8300:2001-2005.

“The wireless function is great. We take the Check II all over the plant,” says Jason Francis of R.S. Alberts, a multi-faceted custom molder in Montoursville, PA. “It's really nice to have every measurement stored on the spectro wherever we go.”

“Designed for versatility in various applications, Datacolor's new Check II portable spectrophotometer addresses a number of market needs and trends, including the need for wireless connection,” says Bob Karpowicz, Product Manager at Datacolor. “For the first time, color professionals in the Textile, Plastics and Automotive industries can utilize Datacolor's advanced color technology wherever they go – seamlessly and wirelessly.

“And because the Check II shares the same spectral technology with our benchtop systems, like the Datacolor 600, our customers not only get the best accuracy and inter-instrument agreement of any portable device, but also unparalleled agreement with the Datacolor reference grade instruments that their colorant labs use. That means better efficiency and fewer mistakes throughout the color supply chain,” Mr. Karpowicz added.

The Datacolor Check II acts as a QC lab in the palm of your hand. The Datacolor exclusive Multi-Dimensional Tolerancing feature makes the Check II the best stand-alone portable color measuring solution for manufacturers concerned with colors that shift with changing light sources. Now, producers of multi-fabric garments, manufacturers of multi-component plastic parts, and printers needing to match samples of unknown origin will find the Check II an invaluable way to avoid unwanted metameric flair in their products.
