LS172 is a handheld multifunctional colorimeter designed with a 45/0 annular illumination geometry. It uses a 3.5-inch IPS capacitive touch screen to provide an excellent operating experience. The color analyzer integrates multiple color charts, and it can quickly match the three closest color codes. The colorimeter also has a color comparison function, and supports a variety of standard color addition methods. The color difference threshold can be set, and the color difference formula can be flexibly selected, which can realize rapid QC testing.
