High Precision Laboratory Colorimeters: A Review of Kalstein Models

Kalstein presents an exceptional range of laboratory colorimeters designed to provide accurate and reliable color analysis results in a variety of fields.

Kalsteinโ€™s laboratory colorimetric equipment provides a variety of options to suit different research and quality needs by enabling accurate and reproducible color measurements of materials, regardless of their texture, size or shape.

YR05515 High-Performance Colorimeter: Optimizing Performance

Kalsteinโ€™s YR05515 features advanced technology and colorimetric accuracy. Its D/8ยฐ illumination and display geometry conforms to CIE Standard No. 15, GB/T 3978, ensuring correlation with the readings of high-end devices used in scientific research. It incorporates a silicon photodiode as a sensor and has a measuring aperture of 4 mm, making it the perfect instrument for a variety of measurement tasks.

This colorimeter works with a D65 illuminant and CIE 10ยฐ observer, while being able to display colorimetric value data and store color difference values. The color space it uses is CIE LAB, LCH, one of the most popular and widely used in the industry due to its ability to reproduce all colors visible to the human eye. https://www.kalstein.nl/product/high-cost-effective-portable-colorimeter-yr05515/

Precision Colorimeter YR05511: Adaptable and Efficient

The YR05511, on the other hand, stands out for its adaptability to different surfaces. Its illumination/vision geometry is 45ยฐ/0ยฐ and it has a measuring aperture of ฮฆ8mm. Measurement can be performed on the large and stable end face as well as on the small concave-convex front face to adapt to different measurement objects.

It has a silicon photoelectric diode as a detector, likewise, it uses a color difference formula โ–ณE*ab โ–ณL*a*b* โ–ณE*C*h* and CIEL*a*b*C*h* CIEL*a*b* CIEXYZ color space. These features enable accurate and consistent color measurements to be carried out in a variety of applications. https://www.kalstein.nl/product/precision-colorimeter-yr05511/

Precision Colorimeter YR05506 โ€“ YR05508: Improved Accuracy

As for the YR05506, YR05507 and YR05508 models, their design focuses on measurement accuracy. They feature 8/day geometry illumination/vision and a measurement aperture of ฮฆ8mm/ฮฆ4mm, ฮฆ8mm and ฮฆ8mm respectively.

These models employ CIEL*a*b*C*h* CIEL*a*b* CIEXYZ CIERGB CIEL*u*v* CIEL*C*h* CIEL*a*b* CIEL*C*h* and color difference formulas โ–ณE*ab โ–ณL*a*b* โ–ณE*C*h* โ–ณECIE94 โ–ณEhunter to achieve accurate and comparable results between different equipment and situations. https://www.kalstein.nl/product/precision-colorimeter-yr05506-yr05508/

YR05516 โ€“ YR05517 Spectrocolorimeters: State-of-the-Art Technology

The YR05516 and YR05517 maintain the high standard of accuracy and versatility of the Kalstein colorimeter range. They feature D/8 optical geometry (diffuse illumination, 8-degree viewing angle) and comply with CIE No.15, GB/T 3978, GB 2893, GB/T 18833, ISO7724-1, ASTM E1164, DIN5033 Teil7, providing reliability and consistency of results.

Both models incorporate SCI/SCE mode and use a ฮฆ40mm integrating sphere to improve measurement accuracy. This technology ensures the best performance in applications that demand the highest accuracy and reproducibility in color measurement. https://www.kalstein.nl/product/spectrocolorimeter-yr05516-yr05517/
