X-Rite Incorporated and Pantone LLC recently announced LED Lamp Kits for the SpectraLight QC and Judge QC light booths. As more retailers, homes, offices, and commercial environments adopt LED lighting for improved efficiency and reduced energy costs, the new kits allow brands, manufacturers and suppliers to easily update their visual evaluation and colour assessment process to accommodate today’s lighting trends.
X-Rite LED Lamp Kits allow paint, plastics, textiles, printing and packaging customers to easily incorporate this efficient light source into existing visual evaluation and colour control workflows.
‘Brands and manufacturers who want to ensure the highest level of product quality and colour consistency in today’s retail environment are increasingly adopting LED lighting as part of their colour control programme,’ said Marcus Jones, product management director, X-Rite and Pantone. ‘X-Rite developed easy-to-install LED lamp kits that allow customers to retrofit existing X-Rite light booths by replacing the fluorescent store lighting with an LED source. Within a matter of minutes, our customers can add a 4000K LED source as an option for evaluating incoming materials, samples, and final products for colour consistency and physical defects under controlled lighting conditions.’
Lighting plays a critical role in how a person perceives the colour and appearance of an object. It is essential that brands and manufacturers consider all lighting sources under which a final product may appear, including daylight, factory, store and home lighting environments. With the LED lamp kit, X-Rite light booths can simulate a wider range of lighting conditions, including dual daylight options (D50 lighting for print and D65 for industrial applications), incandescent, fluorescent, and LED illumination.
The new LED Lamp Kits work with:
SpectraLight QC light booth, which features seven different light sources, and is ideal for colour-critical visual assessment of large and small items under multiple lighting conditions.
Judge QC, an affordable, durable light booth with five light sources for accurate evaluation of colour under controlled lighting conditions for print, packaging and industrial applications.
