Konica Minolta




SpectraMagic NX is a color measurement software package that can be used to interface with Konica Minolta instruments and provide extended reporting and analysis of color and color difference. The user has full control of customisation of templates and reports.


Requirements in screen layouts differ by application, from simple Pass/Fail assessment or statistic process control to detailed analysis for R&D work. SpectraMagic™NX comes with several pre-defined templates to choose from, or you can create your own screen layout suiting your needs and application with total freedom and flexibility. Each graph type (Colour, Spectral, 2D/3D, Colour-Difference or Trend) as well as the data list can be scaled to the desired size with total ease.


Sophisticated QC Applications

Target data of one master target (primary target) can be associated with two or more working targets (regular secondary targets). This allows for sophisticated QC applications such as checking for colour differences between the regular targets and master target simultaneously. Or, the colour differences of an entire product can be managed in sections by comparing the differences from the target colour of each section.
The minimum ellipse to enclose several samples can be calculated automatically and specified as tolerance. The automatic tolerance setting enables pass/fail judgment using three colour difference equations, CMC(l:c), CIE 1994 and CIE DE2000, which provide results similar to visual evaluation and are being adopted increasingly by companies and organizations.


Comprehensive graphs and colour difference assessments

SpectraMagic™NX helps you to make colour quality control easy and comprehensive at once. You can choose from several graphs together with the latest Pass/Fail colour difference assessments equations, such as CIE 1994 or CIE DE2000 and several industry related indices. Tolerances, both in box or elliptical form can be automatically calculated or manually adjusted to approved standards.

Furthermore, SpectraMagic™NX features a "User Index" function that allows you to configure up to 3 customized colour equations to meet industry-specific requirements for colour evaluation.

An additional feature that makes QC with SpectraMagic™NX easy and fast is “Auto Target” to automatically choose the correct target for comparisons after a measurement was taken


Automated operation by macro function

You can easily register routine operation flows as macros using the menu screen* to automate the operation processes. This is effective for reducing working time as well as preventing operation mistakes.

*Macros cannot be registered by Lite Edition. Macros created using Professional Edition can be also run on Lite Edition.
