    • X-Rite SpectraLight QC Viewing Booth

      Consistent quality control in color-critical product categories is finally possible thanks to the SpectraLight QC light booth and luminaire. 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. A data-driven back-end ensures inter-instrument agreement across the supply chain, allowing unprecedented reporting and traceability on unit settings, lamp performance, operator certifications, and more.


        • Filtered tungsten halogen daylight provides the most accurate daylight simulation available for optimum visual assessment.
        • Built-in sensors automatically adjust fluorescent lamp voltage to achieve instant stability and compensate for changes in lamp performance after many hours of use.
        • Every instrument starts with exacting UV calibration. Built-in sensors monitor and correct UV output to maintain inter-instrument agreement.
        • Real-time digital lux output can be adjusted to comply with ASTM and AATCC standards based on the sample type or user needs.
        • X-Rite replacement lamps are marked with unique serial numbers to ensure 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:

      QC Computer
          • 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)

      Dim Control

      The Dim control allows you to adjust the Lux or voltage of the Fluorescent and UV lamp sources. Set fluorescent lamp dim control by lux or by voltage. UV is always dimmed by voltage. When a fluorescent or UV lamp is activated, continually press the up (▲) switch or down (▼) switch to increase or decrease the output. When dimming occurs, any profile that was set will be exited and the name will disappear from the main menu, unless the admin changes the selection.

      The Tri Lux option allows to page through three predefined lux values set for the profile:

          • High: 1250 lux
          • Medium: 1080 lux
          • Low: 540 lux

      Revolutionary technology to change market standards

      QC Operator

      The technology introduced by the new SpectraLight QC is going to revolutionize the way we measure color accuracy. The illumination technology used in this device is superior to any other light booth available on the market today. Thanks to the number of light sources built into the QC (more than any other booth), this instrument can meet almost any specification.

      Through the use of daylight, incandescent "A", horizon, and your choice of three fluorescent tubes, this booth is able to reproduce almost any color cast for accurate comparison. If that wasn't enough, X-Rite decided to integrate light sensors in order to provide real time output of fluorescent lamp lux (which can be set by the operator to meet specific industry standards). The closed loop fluorescent lamp control integrated in this booth allows operators to switch light sources without having to wait for a required warm up time. The built in sensors monitor and control all of the fluorescent lamps in the booth to maintain precise lux over the life of the lamp. The QC also features factory-calibrated UV, and allows the user to adjust the amount of UV present while viewing their sample.

      Obtain Consistent Color Accuracy

      The QC is not only a light booth, but also and auditing tool meant to decrease the inconsistencies at different stages in the supply chain. This booth is capable of providing an analysis of a rejected sample to isolate the cause of the problem. The SpectraLight both lowers the rejection rate of samples with its simple troubleshooting as well as allowing all parties involved to thoroughly investigate the supply chain in order to take corrective action before exorbitant amounts of money are lost to incorrect color.

      Say goodbye to natural human discrepancies.

      QC Profiles

      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.
