The applications for our spectral colour measurement instruments are almost unlimited. We have therefore presented only a few of our of our most important customer group industries as examples on the previous pages.


Whether you want to measure the colour of paper, plastics, cosmetics bottles (or their contents), furniture, parquet, building materials, chemicals, medicines, coins, works of art or other colour, we have a solution for almost every application. We offer a wide range of accessories for our devices.

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 similarly to a solid. Transparent liquids are measured in a transmission mode.

For chemical industry we offer the spectrophotometer sph900 with dipstick probe head, waterproof according IP67. 

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 LED’s.

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.

Relatibely 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.
