Konica Minolta’s CR-10 Plus color difference reader is a portable, battery powered, and hand-held instrument for quick, precise color control. With a built-in utility software application, it allows changing of instrument settings, set tolerances, pass/fail judgment and data analysis directly on the instrument. CR-10 Plus has the ability to measure precise color difference expressed in L*a*b* and dE* or L*C*H* and dE* displayed on an easy to view LCD screen. The CR-10 Plus boasts a standard measuring area of 8 mm and 5 mm with an optional accessory allowing it useful in a broad array of applications. All color measurements are taken using conditions of the standard illuminant D65 and 10 degrees observer and Specular Component Included (SCI) while offering a Xenon lamp light source for longer life and more stable readings.
