Benchtop spectrophotometer

The DS-36D series uses its own differential spectral engine to increase light input by 50% and spectral resolution by 30%. Provide better subtraction, inter station differences, and performance display. The camera resolution can be improved by 350% and the color of darker samples can be reconstructed through brightness calibration algorithms.

  • Equipped with two types of lighting sources: pulse xenon lamp and LED
  • 37 standard light sources, 40+ measurement indicators
  • Automatic recognition of four apertures switching
  • Temperature and humidity calculation compensation function
  • 7-inch touch screen, Android operating system
  • Provide powerful ColorExpert computer data management software
  • Can save data to the cloud and follow the account to prevent loss
  • Support PC end export or printing of data test reports
  • Support color matching software to provide more formula inspiration and improve color matching efficiency
