The Next Generation Of Color Control For Your Press Room, Ink Lab or Testing Lab:

The 530s high-performance spectral engine provides the most precise color measurement technology available today. By combining the capabilities of a high-end densitometer, precise colorimeter, and a powerful spectrophotometer, the versatile 530 Spectrodensitometer is a color tool that works at everystep in the production process.

Color Control Where You Need It:

Get ahold of the powerful X-Rite 530 and you can take command of color anywhere you go. The wide range of color measurement features and rugged, portable design combine to make this new device the best in its class. Use it at press side to measure a variety of common density functionsor take advantage of our EFS or News modes to speed your measurement of color control elements. In materials testing, switch to the 530s color functions and verify that special colors and paper values are still in line with customer or shop requirements. View the data, or look at simple graphs that can be viewed directly on the instrument display. In the ink room, use the powerful spectral data along with your ink mixing system to test, formulate or correct ink formulas quickly and accurately.

Simple Color Comparison:

For more-than-four-color printing jobs or those with multiple special colors, use our simple color compare function. Found only in X-Rite instruments, it can save you time when evaluating color differences, making you more productive.

Just identify your ideal color references using the density, color or paper functions of the 530. Unlike ordinary color measurement devices, the 530 stores the unique spectral identity of up to 24 individual reference colors.Then, during the production run, simply measure any color, in any order, and the 530 smartly shows you the comparative color or density difference, so you can make color-critical decisions and take cost-saving action.

Match Colors Quickly:

If you need to match colors against a database of your own references or industry guides such as PANTONE, the match feature will show you the closest match and the color difference of the closest 16 colors.Over 1400 references may be stored in the instrument at one time. Optional ColorMail Express software allows you to manage the databases via a PC-compatible computer.
