Multi-angle spectrophotometer MS3012

Time:2022-01-11 Click:396

MS3012 Multi-angle spectrophotometer adopts Industrial-grade MCU with 12 measuring angles, which can provide accurate and consistent color measurement for metalllics, pearlescents and other complex special effect finished products. The smooth operating system and superior performance of the optical system allow the MS3012 multi-angle spectrometer to provide repeatability and reproducibility of Sparkle Grade(SG),Diffuse coarseness(DC) and Color Variation(CV) measurement.

3nh Multi-angle spectrophotometer MS3012 is used to measure the color difference for the surface paint which is affected by different viewing angles and viewing conditions. It can not only measure multi-angle color difference, but also measure and characterize special finishes through 12 measuring angles. Even in the curved surface, it also has high measuring accuracy and stability.

Technical characteristics

1. Multi-angle measurement

Adopt 7 illumination sources, 2 receivers to measure 12 measurement angles at the same time

2. More intuitive display

Touch screen can display all Angle measurement results, more intuitive view of the comprehensive data.

3. Effect measurement discrimination function

Quickly distinguish the sample Sparkle Grade(SG),Diffuse coarseness(DC) and Color Variation(CV), simple and effective quality inspection.

4. 256 Image Element Double Array CMOS Image Sensor

The higher optical resolution ensures the measuring speed, accuracy, stability and consistency of the instrument. The core technology makes it as the same platform with international standards and complete compatibility.

5. Adopt Full spectrum LED light source with blue enhancement

The Full spectrum LED light source with blue enhancement ensures sufficient spectral distribution in the visible light range, avoids the spectral loss of LED in a specific band, and ensures the accuracy of instrument measurement results and low cost maintenance.

6. Concave grating spectrophotometric technology

Using concave grating spectrophotometric technology, with higher resolution, makes  color measurement more accurate.

7. Professional-grade white board

Professional-grade white board, high hardness in the surface, stable optical performance


8. Higher quality

Industrial grade real-time processing MCU, Bluetooth 5.0 transferring more stable and reliable.

9. Ergonomics Novel and fashionable appearance design

The instrument appearance design is easy to operate, and the hand holding position and the measurement button are well-designed, which can meet different holding habits, smooth and fine surface, from the high-precision appearance treatment process.

10. Color camera preview, can clearly observe the measured area

Built-in color camera positioning, can accurately judge the object measured position, and improve the measurement efficiency and accuracy.

11. Multiple color measurement space, multiple observation light sources

Offer CIE LAB,XYZ,Yxy,LCh,β XY,DIN Lab99 color space, And D65, A, C, D50, D55, D75, F1, F2 (CWF), F3, F4 and F5, F6 and F7 (DLF), F8, F9, F10 (TPL5), and F11 (TL84), F12 (TL83/ U30) A variety of light source, which can meet the special measurement demand under different measurement conditions.


12. Easily analyze data

The screen can intuitively display spectrum/data, sample chromaticity value, color difference value/figure, pass/fail results, color simulation, sample effect value, effect difference value and other data, convenient to view while also greatly improve the user's work efficiency.
