Konica Minolta Sensing Releases Updated Firmware For FD-Series Spectrodensitometers

2/12/2013

Ramsey, NJ

Konica Minolta Sensing Americas, Inc. (KMSA), the worldwide leader in the industrial measurement of color, light and 3D shape, announces the US release of its updated firmware to its FD-Series Spectrodensitometers used in the digital imaging and printing markets.

Released in 2011 the FD-Series Spectrodensitometers were the first spectrodensitometer on the market to correspond to the ISO 13655 M1 standard for fluorescence and color measurement. They also includes the industry s first Automatic Wavelength Compensation feature which automatically calibrates in the wavelength direction when white calibration was performed.

Today both the FD-5 and FD-7 models receive the 1.2 Firmware upgrade. The upgrade further enhances the usability and operational capabilities of this world class spectrodensitometer, packing 11 new features and improvements, while still retaining the ability to simultaneously measure and account for density, color and fluorescence of the paper substrate.

Brand owners will find the improved features helpful in quality assuring their products over a multitude of industrial standards. The upgrade provides the most technologically advanced way of communicating color where users can easily store and share custom color data sets among vendors and/or production facilities

Major Improvements:

  • Gray balance feature allows for grays to be evaluated using the G7® specification method
  • Backing conversion feature allows the instrument to compensate for backing differences. Very important when specifications are set for white backing and the printer need to measure on a black backing due to the nature of their work.
  • Data Management Software – Provide 3 key features:
  • Transfer measurement data directly into Excel spreadsheet
  • Manages “Color Sets” for both customized color libraries and industry guidelines like ISO 12647
  • Reading and registering of a user illuminant data. The FD-7 measures a particular light source as a master instrument and data can be uploaded to FD-5/7 field instruments. Color control using the same illumination light source at multiple locations can be achieved.
  • Konica Minolta’s own Spectra MagicNX v2.4 is now supported, allowing the users an easy-to-use intuitive color quality software.

FD-Series Spectrodensitometers with the upgraded firmware will be available for purchase from select graphic arts distributors and online at http://www.shopkmsa.com beginning February 2013.Stay connected with Konica!
