X-Rite, Incorporated, today announced the immediate availability of a new member of its DensiEye family of portable pressroom reflection densitometers. Designed to meet the needs of press operators, production managers and quality control managers, the new DensiEye 100 provides users with density and grey balance data to ensure the quality, accuracy and stability of their prints.
With the fastest measurement response on the market, the DensiEye family measures all critical factors in the printing process to help speed press make-ready and point out errors before they get out of control, making a DensiEye a cost effective addition to any pressroom running CMYK jobs.
The new DensiEye 100 is very easy to use, making it perfectly suited to anyone with only a basic knowledge of print quality control. Users have direct visual access to the most commonly used functions and density readings without even pressing a key. The clear Pass/Fail Indicator (PFI) provides quick results and lets users move on to the next measurement without even needing to look at the display unless the PFI alarm flashes.
DensiEye 100 can easily be upgraded to a fully-featured DensiEye 700 to include all the necessary functions for highly detailed measurements including: density, tone value (dot area), tone value increase (dot gain), trapping, gray balance and print characteristic measurement. An optional smaller aperture (which can include a polarization filter) is also available for measuring small strips as required in magazine and newspaper printing environments.
Like the fully-featured DensiEye 700, the DensiEye 100 is equipped with LED technology for low power consumption and is capable of up to 500,000 measurements per battery set (both systems use standard AA batteries). This means less maintenance and fewer battery replacements. Both DensiEye portable reflection densitometers can easily communicate with any PC through the USB port.
