Spectramagic DX

SpectraMagic™DX, successor to SpectraMagic™NX, is a color measurement and control software suitable for a wide range of industries like foods, plastics and paint & coatings.

Similar to SpectraMagic™NX, user can easily inspect and control color involving incoming raw materials, in process production or outbound color critical goods and materials. Whether the application requires a simple pass/fail judgement, statistical process control or detailed R&D analysis, SpectraMagic™DX offers several pre-defined templates as well as the ability to design your own screen layout based on user specific application requirements.

SpectraMagic™DX features a new user interface to enhance working experience and makes software much simpler to use. Not only can it help control the color quality of product, it can also help control the performance of instruments through the new diagnosis function.
