The CM-700d spectrophotometer is an easy-to-use, handheld color measuring instrument with changeable aperture setting (MAV: Φ8 mm/Φ11 mm SAV: Φ3 mm/Φ6 mm).

Spectrophotometer CM-700d

Using a range of user-friendly functions, the CM-700d Spectrophotometer effectively measures the color of an object. Ergonomically designed to fit your hand comfortably, this handheld instrument features a color LCD screen. Spectral graphs, pseudocolor, and color difference graphs are part of the plethora of information displayed on the screen.

Measured colors can also be reproduced as color patches on the screen, useful in searching for colors or for checking the level of color difference. Dedicated buttons for frequently-used operations such as call up menus or target colors adds to the CM-700d Spectrophotometer’s ease of use. The menu-driven display makes operating the unit intuitive.

This instrument is Bluetooth compatible and portable, so all information can be communicated wirelessly to a printer or a PC. With the unit’s large memory capacity, it can store up to 1,000 sets of target data and 4,000 sets of measurement data.

With SpectraMagic NX software compatibility, the CM-700d Spectrophotometer easy-to-use and displays multiple views of editable data results. Target data of the primary target can be associated to two or more secondary targets, allowing users to check for color difference and other sophisticated QC applications.

Put information into the software using simple drag-and-drop for easy interpretation after printing. Information can be displayed using a variety of graphs. Preconfigured templates are available, and show instrument information at a glance by utilizing the status window. Transfer data compiled with older software into the newest updated software. Easily export information into Excel if needed to show data, and the Color Tutorial and Navigation Function are included with the software for additional information.
