HunterLab MiniScan EZ 4000S Spectrophotometer


The MiniScan EZ 4000S is a lightweight hand-held spectrophotometer used for measuring the reflected colour of samples. This instrument is designed for one-handed operation with thumb-tip navigation of functions. This portable spectrophotometer can be used right at the production line at any appropriate moment as required and gives easy to read colour data.


To adapt to an individual manufacturer’s requirements, the MiniScan EZ 4000S is adaptable with a USB printer, keyboard and barcode reader; these accessories allow the instrument to become personalized within quality control processes, give results as required and be adjusted as necessary to keep up with any changes that may occur.


The MiniScan EZ 4000S is effective at minimizing the effect of gloss when analyzing colour data of samples. In addition, it can also negate the texture of samples, resulting in truly accurate colour measurement data. The MiniScan 4000S is built using diffuse/8˚ geometry that allows for these special features and is more specialized to smaller sample types as a result of its 14.3mm port size and 8mm view. This smaller view is suited for operators who measure smaller samples or require only a small section of a product to be analyzed.


The MiniScan EZ can measure the reflected colour of a variety of sample types including fabrics, paper, powders, granules, and even liquids when measured through a sample cup. The results are able to be displayed as colour data, colour difference data, colour plot, spectral data, spectral data difference, spectral plot and spectral difference plot, depending on individual requirements. Additionally, this instrument can also be programmed with pass/fail tolerances to make quality control a more effective process when comparing a sample measured to a pre-determined standard.


For samples of uneven physical characteristics, the data collected by the MiniScan EZ 4000S can also be calculated into an average to give a better representation of the product measured as a whole, not just the sample.


The MiniScan EZ 4000S is able to store 100 standards and 800 sample measurements that can be downloaded onto a PC or printer at the operator’s convenience. As an extra bonus, for a more detailed analysis of colour data and the ability to compare samples to each other clearly, the MiniScan EZ can be used in conjunction with EasyMatch QC Software.


This instrument is extremely versatile and can be modified and set up in a way to suit any and all appearance analysis needs.
