Konica Minolta CR-400 Chroma Meter | Colorimeter

The CR-400 Chroma Meter is a handheld, portable measurement instrument designed to evaluate the color of objects, particularly with smoother surface conditions or minimal color variation. Through standard or customized evaluation formulas, this high accuracy, reliable colorimeter helps users control the color quality, consistency, and appearance of their samples in a more efficient, streamlined process internally and throughout the supply chain. It accurately identifies color characteristics in objects, determines color differences between objects, and provides pass/fail assessments to immediately determine if the sample meets the defined standard. This makes the CR-400 ideal for color inspections of food, building material, plastic, and dermatological applications within quality control, quality assurance, and R&D fields.

The CR-400 Chroma Meter is compatible with an optional data processor to print results on-site or SpectraMagic NX software to record measurements and provide a more comprehensive color analysis.

Features
  • Smaller aperture size - 8mm aperture ideal for evaluating the color of samples with smoother surface conditions or minimal color variation
  • Pass/fail assessments - immediately determines if the sample meets the defined standard or target color for improved user efficiency
  • Customizable evaluation formulas- allows users to customize the color evaluation formula to meet industry-specific or application needs
  • Large LCD screen- displays data and graphs clearly, including color values and color difference graphs, for easy interpretation of measurement results
  • Stores measurement results 1,000 measurements can be stored internally, 2,000 measurements can be stored with the optional data processor attached
  • Portable- handheld, lightweight design powered by AC adapter or battery for measurements to be taken anywhere
  • Intuitive design simple, straightforward menus and buttons easily understood by new users
  • Text entry - names of color difference target colors, calibration channels, and input comments can be entered by user
  • Six language options - English, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, German, and French
  • Data processor (optional) - conveniently prints measurement results on-site for improved user efficiency
  • Software compatible -integrates with SpectraMagic NX software to record measurements and provide a more comprehensive color analysis for color quality control
