Colorimeters carry out quantitative and qualitative measurements of colors, including parameters such as saturation, hues and luminosity, as well as perception, quantity and depth, based on the Beer-Lambert law, according to which the absorption of light transmitted through the medium is directly proportional to the concentration of the color light medium to the measuring device. This analyzes the color compared to an existing standard, and then a microprocessor then calculates the absorbance or transmittance percentage, so the computer measures the absorbance or transmittance percentage, both measures of how much light of a particular color is transmitted by an object or solution.

The radiant energy of the light source is influenced on the object or solution, the reflected radiant power passes through one of the three tristimulus filters and falls on the photodetector, generating a response proportional to the corresponding tristimulus value of the object-source combination; subsequently, these raw data are transferred to a microprocessor for the calculation of the absolute tristimulus values. That is, the colorimeters determine the color as a function of the red.

Types of Colorimeter a Laboratory May Need


Kalstein using autonomous core technology research and development of A portable light color difference instrument, is the high level in spectral architecture color difference instrument, in addition to ensure accurate relative Δ E at the same time, also to ensure the accuracy of the absolute value of L, A and B for A long time, anytime, anywhere can pass the international standards and national standards of measurement.
Using the built-in silicon photodiode array (double row 24) sensors, import the whiteboard, repetitive Δ E * ab easily control within 0.1, both measurement speed and convenience of operation, no need to connect the computer or software can quickly judging color difference measurement, 8 mm diameter meet plastic electronics, paint and ink, textile printing and dyeing, printing, such as the ceramic industry accurate color difference of production and the quality control.
