High performance, microprocessor controlled photometer combines easy operation with highly accurate results. Featuring a complete set of quality
control action items that includes a menu-driven handling procedure for the automatic pass/fail specification check based on a certified test filter, a reminder function for re-calibration and an inspection time interval reminder. Capable of performing exact colorimetric evaluations in conformity with
several ISO, DIN and ASTM standards with just a single measurement. Automatic calibration memory, special cuvette recognition logic and the spectral measurement method yield precise and reliable color measurements necessary for high intra and inter instrument reproducibility. An optional Battery power pack allows for use in the field for days without a mains connection.
