Color Measurement:

Portable Device FitsIn The Palm OfYour Hand

Datacolor's new Mercury Color Measurement System uses a proprietary sensor technology that is said to double the resolution of current laboratory-grade instruments. In addition, it introduces the Palm Pilot operating system into the spectrophotometer, so the device fits in the palm of your hand and can be used to perform color evaluations on the production floor.

Unit has a touch screen interface and is user-configurable. Other features include inter-instrument agreement for repeatability, dual-beam optics and 'ultra-high' resolution, full-featured software with alphabetical searches through large color databases, storage of up to 30,000 standards and batches, flexible user levels (i.e., basic measurements in two button pushes, with theability to perform more complexfunctions with a writing stylus) and a battery life of 1000 measurements per charge.

Users can up- and download colorimetric data from the instrument to a PC with single-button operation. Data can then be exported into the company's ColorTools software for charting, graphing and statistical process control. It can also be exported into third-party software packages.

The instrument also switches off if there is no activity from the user for a programmable amount of time. It switches back on when it is touched. Plug-in memory cards for moredatabases, applications or back-upare optional.
