CM-3600d / 3610d Spectrophotometer (spectral type, side port / bottom port)


Made in Japan


Built for Precision, priced for Economy

With their innovative technology, these high precision instruments set new standards in price performance ratio with highest flexibility and user friendliness. The introduction of this innovative instrument has drastically changed the standard for bench-top spectrophotometers throughout the industry. Unlike other "lower cost model" instruments available in the market, the CM-3600d can meet true "high-end" class standards although it's at an affordable price. This became possible only through Konica Minoltas innovative and patented optoelectronics such as numerical gloss control, numerical UV-control and other "world first" technologies. The use of this technology allows much lower production costs by drastically reducing the number of mechanical parts, used in traditional instruments, whilst maintaining the highest levels in accuracy and precision, previously only available in much higher priced instruments. All this has made the CM-3600 series the "global reference instrument" in leading companies around the world. Enhanced Performance with patented "Konica Minolta Innovative Optical System" Technology includes many "world first" features.

Product Overview

  • Exceptional accuracy and reproducibility
    The is capable of measurements at 10nm intervals over a full range of wavelengths from 360 to 740nm. Using double-beam technology and a dual-channel sensor array, it performs measurement with a high degree of accuracy and reproducibility. r
  • Ergonomic approach for convenient operation
    Using the viewfinder, measurement positions can be confirmed from a seated position. r
  • Highly reliable design eliminates the need for maintenance
    Technical innovations have allowed mechanisms for SCI/SCE switching, filter movement, etc. to be reduced to the bare minimum. In addition, the application of our ISO9001 quality control system to design and production calibration has helped to ensure high reliability and long service life. r
  • Compact yet advanced design
    Although it conceals a large 6-inch integrating sphere, the CM-3600d is smart and compact in appearance. r
  • Three measurement diameters
    Select the most appropriate measurement diameter for your particular application. r
  • Exceptional accuracy and reproducibility
    This product is capable of measurement at the center of A4-size samples.

Principal Applications

  • Research, development, and quality control in a wide range of industries. r
  • Universities, testing laboratories, and examination bodies

Main Features

  • Highly accurate and reliable benchtop instrument which can be controlled from a computer using Windows software. r
  • Features a d/8 optical system (diffuse illumination/8??viewing angle) compliant with all relevant standards. r
  • Measurement diameters of 25.4mm, 8mm, and 4mm supported. r
  • Capable of transparent color measurement using a d/0 (diffuse illumination/0??viewing) optical system. 
  • Operates using numerical gloss control.

    Capable of performing simultaneous SCI (specular component included) and SCE (specular component excluded) measurements.

  • Implements numerical UV control.

    Determining effects of UV illumination by calculation, this product eliminates the need for time-consuming changing or movement of filters.

    Supports simultaneous normal and UV-adjusted color measurements.
