    • TotalColor qb Textile Edition Automated Spectrophotometer

      TotalColor Automated Spectrophotometer

      Especially for textile needs

      • Electrostatic Textile sample holder with frame and 1 sticky mat specially designed for stretched textile
      • Air blowing system to prevent textile fibers contaminating the optics
      • Camera for instant automatic positioning even with distorted textile prints
      • Textiles which can entirely be automatically measured: cotton, silk, polyester, viscose, wool, linen and mixed fabrics

      And also…

      • Allows: linearization, ICC profiles, Spot colors Measurement
      • Measurement of fluorescent inks
      • D50 illumination for backlit measurements
      • On flexible or rigid media that is opaque or transparent (maximum thickness 20 mm)

      Caldera's TotalColor Automated Spectrophotometer is the ultimate solution for color management and profiling.

      TotalColor’s automatized table measures media both opaque and transparent with a changeable measuring aperture of 2 and 6 mm (8mm fixed aperture for textiles) for high and low resolution prints, with plain or structured face. The TotalColor table can read materials up to 20mm thick.

      What's included?

      • Spectro LFP qb Spectral Unit
      • Spectro LFP qb Platform
      • Spectro LFP qb Sensing Unit
      • Standard reflection sample holder
      • Standard transmission sample holder
      • Spot Measurement Guide
      • Holder for extra heavy and thick reflective materials
      • Holder for transparent, thick materials
      • Frame transmission sample holder for M1 measurements

      The TotalColor solution can be used for :

      • Creation of ICC profiles for digital output devices for most different materials (both reflective and transparent)
      • Linearization of digital output devices
      • Single measurements of logo colours (Pantone) with subsequent check of the colour-true printing
      • Use as a densitometer to determine density values for films and papers

      What is qb-technology?

      Barbieri “qb-technology” is based on D50 LED illumination and contains the next generation of highest precision spectral core. It fully matches the new measurement condition M1 introduced with the ISO standard 13655‑2009 that delivers full precision on color measurement.

      • Next generation spectral core guarantees accurate measurements with a spectral resolution of 2 nm and optical resolution of 10 nm.
      • D50 illumination is achieved with 7 LEDs by Just Normlicht. It fully matches the new measurement condition M1 introduced with the ISO standard 13655-2009 that guarantees the same illumination between the measurement device and the viewing booth.
      • Three light sources for homogenous illumination of media surface.


      Spectral Core
