    Spectrophotometer RG2 for colour measurement

    Resistant, robust and powerfu

    Cold, wet, dust – that’s no problem for the unique RG2. Made from a massive aluminum housing, the RG2 is the perfect solution in harsh production environments.


    Our ambition for all products that we develop it is to offer our customers real added value. This means in order to keep one step ahead, in terms of functionality, ease of use and accuracy, we place the highest demands on ourselves.

    The spectrophotometer ”Rugged 2” series has a number of unique features, setting it apart from our competitors. As the name suggests, the aim for the development was to produce a spectrophotometer that works reliably in rough environments and still offers the highest accuracy specifications.

    The IP65 protection class means that it is dust and water resistant. We test this by submersing the complete spectrophotometer for short periods under water! The main housing unit is milled from a solid aluminium block, shot blasted and then finished with a hard anodise coating.
