Today colors play a fundamental role in our lives. However, unlike other parameters such as weight or length, there is no physical scale for measuring color, making it nearly impossible for people to respond in kind when asked about a specific color.

With the introduction of color measuring devices such as colorimeters and spectrocolorimeters it became possible to give a numerical value to the color, these equipment are key alternatives of precision for measuring and evaluating the color, however, these types of instruments have more specific differential characteristics for one or another technical application. In this article we will explain in more detail the main differences between both teams.

Type of Colorimeter a Laboratory May Need


  •  ฮฆ 8 mm diameter measurement, 10 ยฐ Angle, observer can meet most of the industry customer requirements;
  • Combination of full-spectrum LED light source, plane grating and true color capacitive touch screen, with a high starting point;
  • Silicon photodiode array (24 groups in double columns), display precision 0.1, good repeatability;
  • The light source life is more than 3 million measurements in 5 years, and the lithium battery takes 6,000 measurements within 8 hours, which can be recharged repeatedly and has a long battery life;
  • Quick data search, analysis and comparison with 500 data storage samples and 10,000 samples.

Features and applications of Colorimeters

Colorimeters are instruments used to measure and analyze colors. Specialized color measurement equipment, using โ€œtristimulusโ€ measurements based on the passage of light through the three primary filters, red, green and blue, simulates the way the human eye is sensitive to light. These three-stimulus color measurements provide information about the amount of these three components present in light reflected or transmitted by a product or material.
