ColorReader CR3(Advanced Edition)

ColorReader CR3 is developed by 3nh adopting advanced color sensor and rich performances APP, with special multi-functional "Smart Button" and professionalized non-contact auto white board calibration, incorporating micro colorimeter and cellphone color reader two in one. It can be widely applied in different industries, such as plastics, electronics, paint and ink, printing, garments, leather, paper, auto, medical, cosmetics, food for color difference management. ColorReader CR3 is small and portable, which can identify and search color cards via smartphone APP. Users can use it to capture color inspiration anytime and anywhere.

CR3 Technical Features:

1. Instant and Precise Color Measurement

Repeatability less than 0.05, display accuracy 0.01, one light press can bring you precise color measurement.

ColorReader CR3(Advanced Edition)

2. Non-contact Auto Calibration

The use of professional non-contact automatic black and white board calibration technology to avoid direct transmission of dirt during the measurement process to the whiteboard, completely solves the problem of separation between the whiteboard and the dust cover required internationally, and ensures the zero position of the whiteboard "this starting line" The long-term accuracy of "makes you more at ease and worry-free when using it."

3. Multifunctional “Smart Button”

The built-in "smart button" of the instrument can independently complete the measurement function setting or test data review. It does not need to connect a mobile phone and a computer. A single machine can realize all the functions of the color difference meter; and at the same time, it can be connected to the mobile phone APP or computer software, taking into account the various functions of the color difference measurement and color management.

6. Rechargeable Lithium Battery

Type-c interface, can do tests continuously for 12,000 times in a single full charge.

ColorReader CR3(Advanced Edition)

7. Higher Quality

Using industrial-grade real-time processing MCU, Bluetooth interface 5.0 transmission is more stable and reliable.

8. Diversified Data Display Modes

The ColorReader CR3 with APP can directly display the sample color value, color difference value, pass/fail result, color simulation, color deviation, reflectance and other data, which is convenient for viewing and greatly improves the user's work efficiency.

9. Massive Color Card Database with You

APP synchronizes mass storage, which can quickly check color data, analyze and compare.

Use the App to build your private color database in the cloud, without having to carry heavy color cards, you can use CR3 to find the closest color among multiple color cards anytime and anywhere.
