scanning steak with Spectro 2 and flat adapter

Nix Spectro 2 Flat Adapters

Surfaces that are uneven, textured, plush, or soft can often be difficult to measure accurately. When the scanned surface has areas that are raised or lowered, light from the device will reflect at different points, and the values received will be swayed and inaccurate. To avoid poor scanning conditions such as those, the Flat Adapter can be attached to the bottom of the Nix Spectro 2. This creates a uniformed surface scan with consistent and accurate results.

Use case examples

  • Fabrics
  • Carpeting
  • Skin
  • Food products
  • Agricultural products
  • Fur / feathers

Please note: With the Flat Adapter attached, you may see L-values that are lower than those seen without the Flat Adapter due to light geometry. If you are using a Flat Adapter to measure your products, it is important to remember to set the master color while using a Flat Adapter as well. This way, you are comparing apples to apples.
