Using measurement technology for quality assurance in print is a universally accepted practice these days. SpectroDens is your all-purpose, modern measurement device. Whether it be in pre-print for verifying proofs, for ongoing quality control measuring spot color at the printing press, during delivery inspection of paper and print products or in a color lab, SpectroDens is exceptionally suitable, whatever your application. Thanks to the individually adjustable display functions, you can quickly set up the device for your particular job. All SpectroDens devices can also be used for short scans and feature a brilliant color display. Optionally data transmission by means of a WLAN module is possible. Can be upgraded post-purchase by program upload to higher versions.
Three Versions of SpectroDens:
Basic: includes the essential density functions
Automatic density, Density CMYK (with reference measurements), Dot area, Dot gain, Print contrast, Gray and color balance, Ink trapping, Printing curve, Density spectrum, Spectral density for spot colors, Trend function ExPresso mini, Slur/doubling, Dot area to Yule-Nielsen for printing plates, LED technology provides measurement conditions M0-M3 according to ISO 13655
Advanced: adds extended densitometry functions, colorimetry and a color library
Same as Basic plus CIE L*a*b*, ΔE*a*b*, CIE L*C*h*ab, CIE XYZ, CIE color circle, ΔE*cmc, ΔE*CIE94, ΔE*CIE2000, Remission spectrum, InkCheck: Color control of spot colors, Color library with up to 20 color books and a total number of 3000 reference values, Memory capacity for 1200 sample values and 300 reference values, GrayGuide according to Gracol G7™
Premium: the comprehensive, flagship version
Does everything the Advanced does and adds Ugra/Fogra media wedge evaluation, ISO-Check: Color control according to ISO 12647, CIE L*u*v*, CIE L*C*h*uv, CIE xyY, DIN Lab99, Metamery index, Whiteness, Yellowness, Pass/fail tolerance, Average
Premium version is particularly good at evaluating the Ugra/Fogra media wedge because the device toggles between colorimetric measurement without polarization filter and density measurement with filter at the push of a button.
The SpectroConnect software supplied with the device displays the measurement data clearly arranged on a computer monitor. Just connect SpectroDens by USB cable to a PC. Optionally the SpectroDens devices can transmit the data even wirelessly via WLAN to the computer.
Measurement data can be transferred e. g. into Microsoft Excel™ or other applications. The integrated color library is especially easy to use. For example, you can load complete “digital color books” into the device. An import of color values in CXF® format is possible.
The software also serves as the connecting module for other applications, e.g. programs for the production of printing curves, for colorimetric quality control or for checking the compliance of printing products to ISO standards.
Requires Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8.
