LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. — February 10, 2015 — Datacolor®, a color management solutions provider, today announced the launch of the CHECK 3 portable spectrophotometer. The completely redesigned CHECK 3 builds on Datacolor’s history of providing world-class portable spectrophotometers for the formulation and quality control needs of color professionals in the paint, coatings, plastic and textile industries. The instrument delivers industry leading color measurement performance, while offering excellent correlation to Datacolor’s world-renowned 600 series of benchtop instruments.
CHECK 3 features a completely redesigned user-interface with a modern and easy-to-navigate color LCD display. The instrument also includes an LED illuminated viewing port, enabling users to very precisely position samples and assure accurate measurement. The change to a horizontal configuration allows measurement in height constrained areas. All of these features contribute to improve the user experience during operation.
With an enhanced two-way Bluetooth interface, CHECK 3 allows the user to seamlessly transfer standards and batches back and forth between the instrument and TOOLS, Datacolor’s highly-regarded color quality control software. Sample measurements can also be initiated from TOOLS when connected via Bluetooth. These features allow quick transfer of color data, enabling users to make color decisions more efficiently.
The high-speed USB feature gives users flexibility in how they choose to manage their data by allowing easy data export to a USB flash-drive, while also providing support for peripherals, such as wireless keyboards and bar code scanners. The ability to use these peripheral devices in conjunction with the CHECK 3 improves the user experience by allowing for simple and efficient sample naming and identification.
“Through our commitment to providing our customers with the highest quality color measurement tools, we made the necessary enhancements to deliver an instrument specifically tailored to meet the needs of the modern color professional,” said Cheryl Johnston, Product Marketing Manager, Portable Instruments, Datacolor. “CHECK 3 provides customers with enhanced ease-of-use and improved efficiency while delivering the same unrivaled color measurement performance they expect from Datacolor.”
