The vertically oriented CM-3610d Spectrophotometer is a bench top model that is capable of highly accurate color measurement while being controlled by a Windows based personal computer. This device possesses dual channel sensors and double beam technology which grant it the capability of measuring at 10nm across a wide range of wavelengths (360-740nm).

The CM-3610d Spectrophotometer has a reduced time for filter movements and when switching between SCE and SCI. The CM-3610D has the ability to measure the color of transparency while giving the user control over UV and numerical gloss. There are three different measurement diameters; 25.4mm, 8mm, and 4mm. The device features a viewfinder which makes this compact, lightweight device ideal for seated position measurements.

The CM-3610d Spectrophotometer is compatible with the SpectraMagic NX software. The SpectraMagic NX software is user friendly and displays multiple, editable views of data results. Two or more secondary targets can be associated with targeted data from a primary target; this capability coincides with sophisticated QC applications like checking for color differences.

The software works on a drag-and drop platform which allows for easy interpretation after printing. For displaying information there is a variety of graph available along with preconfigured templates. There is also a status window in which users may view instrument information. Information compiled through older software is compatible with current software and can easily be transferred; all data is Excel exportable. Included with the software are a Color Tutorial and a Navigation Function to provide users with additional information.
