Chroma Meter CR-410
The handheld CR-410 Chroma Meter is the successor to the CR-310, and of course they’re completely compatible. Existing data can be used with the new unit, so current CR-310 owners will find upgrading easy.
Not only can the unit store up to 1,000 measurements internally, or 2,000 when the data processor is connected, it’s easy to use. The CR-410 Chroma Meter features a 50mm aperture, and since it’s portable it has the ability to be used in various applications to measure multiple kinds of surfaces and different types of products.
The compact, lightweight data processor is battery operated (or can be connected by AC adapter) and enables users to print results on-site for easy labeling. The CR-400 series features a user index function allowing customers to configure evaluation and color calculation formulas as desired. This feature is extremely useful when industry-specific or customized formulas are used instead of the versatile color system and standard evaluation formula (L*a*b*).
Color-difference graphs and pass/fail information can be displayed on the instrument’s LCD screen, and can be set in one of six different languages including French, German, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, and of course, English. Type user comments right into the results, or customers can use the data processor to determine channel names. If users need to accommodate target types like powders, pastes, or liquids, a variety of accessories are available to accommodate.
The CR-410 Chroma Meter’s compatibility with SpectraMagic NX software makes it easy-to-use, and the software displays multiple views of data results that can easily be edited. Sophisticated QC applications, such as checking for color difference is possible by associating target data of the primary target to two or more secondary targets.
With SpectraMagic NX’s easy drag-and-drop functionality, users can quickly put information into the software for easy interpretation after printing. Preconfigured templates are available, and a variety of graphs can be used to display information, plus users can see information at a glance right in the available status window. Easily transfer older data—compiled with older software—into the newest updated software with complete compatibility. Easily transfer data into Excel, and use the Navigation Function and Color Tutorial for more information.
