Can not find your industry? No problem.

The following products can also be measured with our ColorLite spectrophotometers:


Solid Surfaces
The wide range of different solids that can be measured includes: plastics, paper, textiles, painted or anodised surfaces or even glass

Small parts 
The extremely small external probe heads (s-version probe head) of the handheld spectrometers from ColorLite are ideal for measuring small and/or curved components.

Granules or other inhomogenous samples 
To measure granule samples a wider measuring spot is needed. The hand units use an adapter to achieve this. Typical products measured this way are plastic granules, coarse powders and foods.

A common application for spectrophotometers is to measure powders. This is used amongst others in the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industry. A variety of values are used to determine powder colours, often using a white metric scale.

Liquid colours: Opaque;translucent; transparent
Liquids must be measured using different equipment according to their transparency. Non transparent opaque liquids are measured similar to a solid. Transparent liquids are measured in a transmission mode. Translucent (i.e. semi-transparent) liquids values again need other equipment.

You will find more information about measurement of liquids in our information centre -> Working with the device ….


Colour and spectral measurement of a light source 
The software has an optional integrated function to measure chromaticity values and spectrum of a light source, for example LEDs.  

Foods fall into different categories such solids, powders and liquids, each should be measured accordingly.

Wood surfaces 
Using our special MA38 or MA80 adapter it is possible to measure the overall colour of a wooden surface such as flooring boards etc.

The relative small areas can be easily measured using our aiming device. We also have special probe heads to measure a field as small 1 mm in diameter.

Cables and cylindrical parts
The small probe head with a v-block is ideal for measuring cylindrical parts such as cables.

Arts Exhibits 
The small probe head in the s-version is perfect for measuring against all types of art exhibits.
