X-Rite 508 Portable Reflection Spectrodensitometer is great for prepress and the press room - it accurately measures density, dot area and dot gain in a single instrument.



X-Rite 508 Portable Reflection Spectrodensitometer

The X-Rite 508 Spectrodensitometer brings the newest color control technology to a device designed specifically for basic 4-color reproduction. X-Rite includes specialized 4-color newsprint functions within the X-Rite 508 Spectrodensitometer to ensure color accuracy and consistency across press runs and over time. These include newsprint-specific density functions and gray balance.


  • Spectrally Based - all of X-Rite's 500 Series models capture high-resolution spectrophotometric data, which is used as the basis for all of our color and density values
  • Large Interactive Display - the X-Rite 508 Spectrodensitometer has a large, crisp graphic display configurable for left- or right-handed operation. It also features full menu commands in multiple languages
  • Intelligent User Interface - an intuitive key-pad uses universally understood up/down arrow keys and a select key to easily navigate menu items. A "back" and an "escape" key allow for quick and easy navigation
  • On Target - unprecedented microspot aperture size that is as small as 1.6 x 3.2mm, which makes short work of targeting special-color or density measurements
  • Ergonomic Design - fits naturally in your hand. The targeting she clearly pinpoints the measurement area so you get the right measurement every time
