With its 0º/45ºc circumferential geometry, 60-degree gloss meter, UV-controllable LED illumination and 5-megapixel camera, Agera makes positioning samples and measuring color as simple as a snapshot. A single measurement captures and stores the image while it analyzes color, fluorescence, and gloss. Even large samples are no problem with the largest fixed-point contact area of measurement in the industry.
Agera Spectrophotometer completes the picture with an industrial touchscreen, robust quality control software, and state-of-the-art data management—plus sharing options so you can make the most of your investment.
