Spectro Pad 2

Spectro PAD 2

 SpectroPad Series 2

SpectroPad Series 2 is a revolutionary color measuring and process control device. This portable, professional spectrophotometer measures a wide variety of different reflective media used in professional digital printing (including large and wide format). Thanks to its independence from a computer, it can be used also directly on the printer. Its integrated touch display enables interaction with the device and provides instant measurement results.

Image Quality

SpectroPad Series 2 is the first and only device, which enters into the field of image quality evaluations.
As a first, the SpectroPad Series 2 performs an evaluation for homogeneity (uniformity) on the print according to Fogra M-Score.

System requirements

•Microsoft Windows XP or later (32 and 64 bit)
•Mac OS X 10.5 or later (Intel)
