Nix Quality Control Color Sensor

The QC color sensor has been discontinued

With the departure of the QC color sensor, Nix has introduced a new generation of compact color measurement technology with the Spectro 2 – a full featured spectrophotometer that fits in the palm of your hand.

What the QC can do for you!

Mobile Analysis

Perform quality analysis on the go with our wireless measurement solution. Simply pair the Nix QC with your smartphone or tablet.

Data Management

Easily review and export your scans directly within the Nix QC App log. Any scans that do not meet your set threshold are flagged and marked for quick identification and error prevention.

Batch regulation

Maintain color consistency between factory batches by setting custom Delta E thresholds within the Nix QC App.

Variation Control

Control variation between each step of your workflow. From formulation to production, ensure your colors are within your spec.

Reduce Cost

With better control over your batches, you’ll reduce waste, rework, and eliminate costly errors from the equation.

Made for all surfaces

With the Nix QC’s available accessories and adapters, you have the ability to measure almost anything: from solids, liquids, powders, and gels, to patterns and non-uniform surfaces

Solids, powders, liquids — you name it!

We’ve mastered the art of scanning a magnitude of surface types by creating a modular adapter system that works in conjunction with the Nix QC. Whether you need to measure solids, powders, liquids, or soft and/or textured surfaces, you’ll be able to rely on your Nix QC for precise color measurement.
