Spectro2guide Colour Control Handheld Spectrophotometer


The Revolution in Colour Measurement

Colour. Gloss. Fluorescence.

The spectro2guide spectrophotometer represents the next step in the evolution of colour measurement. Colour and 60° gloss are measured simultaneously. Completely new is the prediction of colour stability by measuring like a fluorimeter with monochrome illuminations.

Raise your expectations: spectro2guide ensures colour harmony and analyzes colour stability – objective measurement results for today and the future.


Prediction of Lightfastness

Excited. Emitted. Shifted.

The combination of a spectrophotometer with a fluorimeter opens up completely new perspectives to control colour harmony and guarantee colour stability.

Lightfastness is analyzed with proprietary calculations predicting the colour change with total colour difference DE as well as individual colour component deltas DLABCH.

The excitation and emission range of fluorescent behaviour is displayed with the slider function in smart-lab.

Global Colour Management

Digital Standards. Superior Performance.

A superior accuracy and excellent inter-instrument agreement allow use of digital standards. One binding reference eliminates sources of error and physical standards no longer need to be exchanged.

Thus, colour control data are reliable and communication among all parties is seamless and efficient.

Digital standards bring the complete supply chain on target.


Colour Measurement with Outstanding Technical Performance

High-tech. Smart. Experienced.

The spectro2guide uses innovative, high performance LED technology as light source. Smart testing combined with our long-standing experience guarantees an outstanding performance.

Short-term, long-term and temperature stability as well as a homogeneous illumination spot are unsurpassed in the industry.

The long life time of our LEDs, guaranteed for 10 years, ensure low maintenance – no lamp replacement needed.

Brilliant Colour Display

Swipe. Touch. Measure.

As for mobile phones, there is a trend towards ever-larger displays. The spectro2guide is completely in line with this trend offering a 3.5” colour touchscreen – the largest on the market.

An icon-based menu, colourful data tables and graphics ensure an intuitive smart phone like operation.

You can touch or swipe with your fingers – it even works when wearing gloves.


Smart Calibration for Accurate Colour Measurement

Park. Charge. Control.

Accurate readings require reliable calibration.
As the first spectrophotometer on the market, the spectro2guide offers auto diagnosis and an automatic calibration reminder.

The spectro2guide with the docking station make a perfect couple – the white checking standard is always protected and a reliable operation is guaranteed.

Moreover, the docking station automatically charges the instrument.

Preview of Measurement Spot with Camera

Strike. Score. Save.

An integrated camera shows a live preview of the measurement spot. To ensure precise positioning and to prevent false readings on imperfections or scratches, the measurement spot is magnified by a factor of 5:1.

It is so easy – just press the measurement button halfway and the live preview is active.


Colour and Colour Stability Analysis with smart-chart

Big Data. Easy. Automated
smart-chart offers an online mode for instant data analysis – ideal for use in the lab.
The readings are displayed in a data table with Pass/Fail information and shown in scatter or line graphs. Any colour equation can be selected for single or multiple illuminants (metamerism).

For routine process control data are saved in a database and efficiently analyzed with easy filtering and trend charts.

Data is transferred via USB or WiFi.


The Entrance Model for Objective Colour Measurement

  • The spectro-guide simultaneously measures colour and gloss. Thus, the cause of a visual mismatch can be clearly defined.
  • Quality control is made simple and secure – even for colour beginners: Light weight and small size – Ergonomic design – Designated buttons for standard and sample readings
  • The colour data can be transferred to easy-link for documentation in Excel: CIELab graph to chart colour differences – Simple line graph to monitor process changes over time – Colour difference graph for three illuminants to control metamerism
