Numerical Gloss Control Provides Simultaneous SCI/SCE Measurements
The CM-3610A utilizes Konica Minolta's patented Numerical Gloss Control system, eliminating the need for a mechanical gloss trap. By using two xenon lamps the system can provide simultaneous measurements results for specular components included (SCI) and excluded (SCE) with a single measurement.
Numerical UV Control for Accurate Measurements of Fluorescent Materials
Accurate measurement of materials such as paper or cloth treated with using optical brighteners (OBA) requires precise control of the UV component. The patented Numerical UV Control method used by the CM-3600A provides such control by using proprietary calculations to combine the results from flashes of two xenon lamps: one with full UV energy, the other with UV energy removed by a UV-cutoff filter (either 400 nm or 420 nm). This method eliminates the need for lengthy and repeated filter position adjustment, and enables UV adjustment by Whiteness Index, Tint, Brightness, or UV profile.
The vertical, bottom-port design of the CM-3610 enables easy handling of flimsy samples such as paper or cloth that are difficult to accurately position on side-port instruments.
Piston-style sample holder
The piston-style sample holder can be slid down and locked for placing samples on it, and then slid up to hold even thin, flexible samples such as paper in position. The optional Opacity Jig enables white-backed and black-backed measurements to be taken more easily.
With the optional Powder Attachment CM-A510, the CM-3610A allows easy and repeated measurement of granular samples without glass, assuring perfect sample positioning.
Viewer for accurate sample positioning
The sample viewer provides a clear, illuminated view of the sample to perfectly targeting and control the area to be measured.
Measurement Areas to match the sample
The CM-3610A offers 3 different apertures with Ø 4 mm, 8 mm, and 25.4 mm to perfectly match any sample size.
