LCS-IV Spectrophotometer

LCS-IV Spectrophotometer

The LCS IV spectrophotometer is a highly precise color instrument which spectrally measures all color shades of optically clear, transparent liquids using the dual beam principle. Besides the conventional visual color numbers (Gardner, Iodine, Hazen etc.), the LCS IV can also measure opponent color systems such as CIELAB, CIELCH and Hunter Lab under the conditions of illuminant A, C, D65 and 2°/10° Standard Observer.
