Modernize your paint color matching and formulation process with Nix color sensors.
Nix for print + packaging
Color accuracy in the print and packaging industry is everything. Take control of the quality control process by integrating a portable and accurate color measurement solution developed by the engineers at Nix Sensor. Confidently know your color standards are up to code on a scientific level every day.
Nix for any industry
From agriculture to cosmetics, healthcare to textiles, Nix color sensors are made to fit into any workflow. Check out how Nix can be integrated into any industry to make your workflow smoother.
Why a spectrophotometer...
A spectrophotometer first shines a known, stable, broad spectrum white light source on the surface to be measured. It then collects the light reflected from the measured object and breaks it apart into its constituent wavelengths through a prism or something called a diffraction grating.
This “rainbow” of light is then measured and digitized using a precise sensor array at specific wavelength intervals, typically every 10nm across the visible spectrum, 400nm-700nm.
With 1 recorded scan per second, the Nix Spectro 2 has 31 channels across UV, IR and the visible spectrum giving you unparalleled accuracy and consistent data measurements time and time again.
No matter the condition, Nix was built for it. Get creative with how and where you perform your scans and have the confidence to know that your Nix device will withstand any condition you use it in.
Without sacrificing on performance, we’ve made the Nix Spectro 2 a cost-effective option for any industry. No longer do you have to spend thousands of dollars to retrieve accurate data measurements.
Easy to use.
Watch your Nix come alive.
Easier to use than ever. With haptic feedback and light indicators, the Spectro 2 alerts you to active charging, paired Bluetooth connection and successfully completed scans.
Versatility is key.
Powders, liquids, textures, you name it – Nix was built for it. No matter the surface, Nix is ready to capture its data. We’ve developed a system of adapters to scan just about any surface type you can think of.

How the Nix beats the accuracy of the human eye
Our devices block out all ambient light. You can take a measurement in bright sun or the pitch dark.
The Nix device provides its own, highly calibrated LED light source, making sure you get a consistent, accurate scan under any conditions.
The reflected light from the object being measured is then collected by the Nix’s proprietary high-resolution sensor for processing and automatic error detection.
The results of the scan are instantly transmitted to your smart device via Bluetooth, where the colorimetric data is converted to physical paint brands, digital values like RGB, or your own tailored database set up for your specific workflow.
