The compact Techkon RS 800 Scan-Densitometer revolutionizes automatic measurements of densities and dot gains on any print control strip, color wedge and test chart. Operation is easy: The ergonomically-designed measurement device fits securely in your hand. Quickly glide it over the print test strip. The different measuring fields and their position on the control strip are automatically recognized. Tracking wheels on the bottom of the device ensure a secure and straight run. On large-format print sheets, the device is slid along a guiding track.
The high measurement rate of eight measurements per millimeter guarantees accurate measuring results - even with very small color patches.
The Techkon RS 800 is specially designed for measuring spot colors thanks to its high-resolution spectral engine and is ideal for measuring the Fogra media wedge. It can also be used as a standard hand-held device for single measurements. Just position over the color patch and depress the measuring key. Measuring on printing plates is just as easy.
Techkon's ExPresso Pro software is included with your purchase of an RS 800.
It is designed for analyzing and displaying measurements of spot colors. (Requires an available serial port.)
