CM-600d Spectrophotometer

See our latest model of this instrument, the CM-16d

The CM-600d Spectrophotometer is a handheld, portable measurement instrument designed to evaluate the color and appearance of various samples medium to large in size, including objects with flat, shaped, or curved surfaces. This high precision, reliable spectrophotometer allows users to evaluate, reproduce, and control the color of pigments and dyes in a more effective, streamlined process. Its advanced capabilities help establish and meet color quality standards more efficiently, maintain consistency in each batch of material, and communicate color seamlessly internally and throughout the supply chain. This makes the CM-600d ideal for color analysis, formulation, quality control inspections, and process control procedures within research and manufacturing environments.

The CM-600d Spectrophotometer is compatible with SpectraMagic NX2 software to record measurements and provide a more comprehensive color analysis, as well as others software to formulate color recipes for various applications. For dermatological applications, the CM-600d can also be used with CM-SA Skin Analysis software.


  • Eligible ISO 17025 Certification
  • Fixed 8mm aperture ideal for evaluating the color of samples medium to large in size
  • Bluetooth compatible conveniently sends measurement results wirelessly
  • Tight inter-instrument agreement measures consistently with other instruments of the same model, allowing color values and specifications to be communicated, shared, and coordinated seamlessly throughout the supply chain
  • Easily switches between SCE and SCI measurement modes to accommodate the surface conditions of each sample
  • Pass/fail assessments immediately determines if the sample meets the defined standard or target color
  • Large memory capacity stores 4,000 sets of measurement data and up to 1,000 sets of target data
  • Color LCD screen displays data and graphs clearly, including color values, spectral graphs, and color difference graphs
  • Simple, straightforward menus and buttons easily understood by new users
  • Portable, wireless, lightweight design fits comfortably in the hand for measurements to be taken anywhere
  • Integrates with SpectraMagic NX2 software for color quality control, software for color formulation and matching, and CM-SA Skin Analysis software for dermatological applications
