The CM-3630 Spectrophotometer is a highly advanced bench-top unit designed specifically for the paper and pulp industries. This is because of its ability to evaluate opacity, brightness, fluorescence, color, whiteness, and tint, measuring at 10nm over a full range of wavelengths (360nm – 740nm). Using d/0 geometry, the CM-3630 ensures adherence to ISO 2469 and 2470 standards, as well as JIS P8148, DIN 53145-1, and DIN 53142-2 standards to meet the needs of the user.
One of the most notable features of the CM-3630 is its Numerical UV Control. This feature makes calibration and adjustments to whiteness and tint a cinch because everything is done digitally. As opposed to the traditional filter method, the UV calibration process on the CM-3630 is now faster, more precise, and reliable.
In addition, the CM-3630 Spectrophotometer makes accurate measurements of optical brightening agents easy. There are several methods to adjust UV intensity in the instrument, allowing users to switch the light source between full power and soft flash mode. This capability prevents the triplet affect exhibited by some special optical brightening agents.
The CM-3630 Spectrophotometer is compatible with SpectraMagic NX, an easy-to-use and sophisticated software ideal for the quality control process. This software allows users to set a secondary and tertiary illuminant for a target, in addition to the primary target, for identifying color differences.
