      Consistent Visual Assessment

      Visual evaluation of color-critical products under a variety of controlled lighting conditions is an important aspect of any color-managed workflow. Consistent visual assessment for products of all types for quality control purposes is now possible thanks to the SpectraLight QC light booth. This holistic visual color assessment system features state-of-the-art light sources, including natural filtered daylight, making it easy to meet practically any specification.

      Seven Light Sources

      The SpectraLight QC light booth features seven light sources, more than any other light booth on the market. This is important to ensure that products will have the right color appearance under all the lighting conditions they are likely to encounter. Profiles can be created to share preferences and settings across the supply chain.


      Lighting options include:

      • CIE Daylight (D50 or D65)
      • Cool White Fluorescent
      • Incandescent "A"
      • Horizon/2300K
      • UVA
      • Two fluorescent or LED types (choice of U30, U35, TL83, TL84, LED 940, LED 950)

      QC Computer


      • Filtered tungsten halogen daylight simulation provides the most accurate rendering of daylight available anywhere in the market for optimum visual assessment.
      • After initial power-up, lamps achieve almost instant stability when switching between lamps. A helpful indicator acknowledges optimum stability to assure operators that it is in top condition.
      • Every instrument starts with exacting UV calibration. Built-in sensors monitor and correct UV output to maintain inter-instrument agreement.
      • Built-in sensors automatically adjust voltage to maintain proper lux, compensating for lamp age and wear. Real-time digital lux output can be adjusted to comply with ASTM and AATCC standards for sample type or user needs.
      • Certified replacement lamps allow for consistent performance and better traceability.

      Pass Viewing Data for Reliable QC

      As any supplier surely knows, visual assessment is only half the battle of quality control. Real supply chain compliance requires reliable information. The QC is capable of generating and tracing data on all aspects of visual assessment via it's PC reporting capability. When connected to a PC, the QC stores a wealth of useful information such as:

      • Company Name
      • Customer Name
      • Sample ID
      • Lamps Used For Assessment
      • Lamp Condition
        • Age
        • Lamp Life Remaining
        • Illumination Levels
        • Calibration Information
      • Operator Name
      • Operator Certification (100 hue test score)

      Spectralight QC

      Say goodbye to natural human discrepancies.

      Data does absolutely no good whenever you have no way of guaranteeing that the operator viewed the sample correctly. The QC has a built in programmability function that allows suppliers to create custom profiles to meet brand owner requirements. These custom profiles ensure that operators can only use approved lamps and accurate settings for every program. This data can be stored in a report to be shared with customers to help further identify any inconsistencies. Profiles can be created for each individual operator in order to log their Farnsworth-Munsell 100 hue test score. Instead of flying one person around the world to ensure color accuracy, save time and money with the ability to compare individual operators to each other and tune your booth to present the most accurate representation of what the original operator saw.
