Get fast and accurate color measurement results of heavily textured and non-uniform samples—every time—with the intuitive and ingeniously designed Aeros Benchtop Spectrophotometer.

SKU: d52e3d98734a Categories: , ,


Smart. Accurate. And faster to boot. The Aeros Spectrophotometer is engineered to make color measurement of any sample hassle-free.

From the auto-height positioning sensor to the large, rotating platform to the durable display and intelligent communication technologies, the Aeros Spectrophotometer was created for the way you work—and the color samples you need to measure. One touch is all you need to automatically measure 27.5 square inches in 5 seconds, which not only reduces measurement variations between operators but also reduces their learning time. And since it’s a no-contact sensor, you won’t have to waste time on setup or cleanup. So you can focus on sharing the results however you want it: With the built-in all-in-one technology, you can easily print, email, or stream data. Now that’s smart.
