Datacolor - Portable Color Measurement - CHECK 3

The CHECK 3 portable spectrophotometer continues Datacolor’s tradition of best-in-class color measurement performance.

Improved ease of use features include a new modern user interface, enhanced Bluetooth functionality, and an illuminated sample port, enabling the CHECK 3 to consistently deliver accurate color data to meet your needs.

Exceptional measurement performance

CHECK 3 offers excellent correlation to Datacolor’s world-renowned bench top spectrophotometers. It shares the same high-accuracy SP2000 spectrometer as our reference grade Datacolor 800 benchtop instrument. For each measurement, from vendor to customer and throughout the entire supply chain, you can count on the CHECK3 for highly accurate color data.

Extensive Onboard Functionality
Large color LCD screen with a completely redesigned, intuitive user interface makes the instrument easy-to-learn and easy-to-use:

  • 1-click continuous sample measurement
  • Live navigation bar enables easy access to Target, Batch, Tolerance, and other settings.
  • Pass/Fail, Auto-Standard, Auto-Name, Auto-Saving, Indices and more

Bluetooth® and USB Peripheral Support allows Easy Measurement Wherever you are:
Seamlessly transfer standards and measurements between CHECK 3 and Datacolor TOOLS quality control software via Bluetooth or USB.
