Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor

You find the inspiration. We find the match.

We care about color. We’re passionate about discovering its DNA, and we know you are, too. That’s why we’ve developed the Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor.

Winner of the Red Dot Design Award and German Design Award, this handheld device lets you scan any surface to identify and match its color — no guesswork required.


We’ve been careful in our design so you don’t have to be. Take our state-of-the art technology into any and all environments, and use it to match and identify color.


Lightweight and wireless, the Nix Mini 2 can fit in your pocket or the palm of your hand.


Scan and measure color whenever the opportunity calls for it. The Nix Mini 2 battery life is long lasting, and takes only three hours to fully charge with its micro USB charging cable that works with any standard charger.


We’re the only device in the industry to offer a color analysis solution that doesn’t require user calibration. This drastically decreases your set-up time, and lets you scan color right away and without those finicky white tiles.

Deliberately designed to be different. 

By blocking out all ambient light and providing its own light source, the Nix Mini 2 is able to ignore bright light and dark shadows and perform an accurate reading, every time.
