Product Description
The Byk Color-Guide 45/0 spectrophotometer offers color measurement for specific applications
Color Control of Small Parts - Keyboards, pens and window handles require a color instrument with a very small aperture and a repeatable sample placement. color-guide 45/0, 4 mm aperture together with the optional sample holder guarantee repeatable results and a convenient sample placement.
~ Minimum sample size: 5 x 5 mm (0.2 x 0.2 in)
Color Control of Powdered Material - When measuring powdery or granular material like raw material pucks or grainy food, the instrument's optics must be protected. The color-guide spectrophotometer with glass sealed aperture uses a colorless, optical glass and can directly measure such products, thus saving sample preparation time.
Professional Documentation with easy-link- ISO 9000 requires documentation of color data. easy-link, included with the color-guide, offers all of the necessary tools:
~ Easy and direct data transfer from the instrument to ExcelR
~ Predefined QC-report templates (Lab-plot, trend graph) are included
~ All relevant quality data can be easily summarized in one report: Color. Gloss. Film Thickness
~ Easy management of your standards: standard back-up and establishing of production tolerances

To assist you in analyzing your color readings, understanding how to set tolerances and as a result be able to use the color-guide spectrophotometer to save time and money and at the same time improve your quality, the instrument comes with a half day training course including:

1. Color Theory
~ The building blocks of color: illuminant, observer, object
~ Color differences with interpretation

2. Operation and Software Training
~ Measure samples and standards by single and average readings
~ Save, recall and delete measurements
~ Change illuminants, observers, color scales
~ Direct data transfer to Excel
