Color Reflection
Spectrodensitometer
An Advanced Solution For Process
Color Printing
The X-Rite 518 Spectrodensitometer combines everything you need
for exceptional 4-color proofing and pressroom quality control:
spectral accuracy, a full range of functions, efficient operation, and
hand-held convenience.
The 518 Meets The Needs Of Any
4-Color Pressroom
The 518 excels at quality control for all 4-color printing operations,
including sheet-fed, web press, publication printing, and newsprint.
At the touch of a button, you get density, dot, trap, print contrast,
hue error, or grayness information, all of it calculated with spectral
accuracy. The hand-held, portable design goes anywhere to quickly
take measurements and deliver the data you need to keep your
presses on target.
Special Electronic Function Selection™ Feature
With each reading along the color bar, the 518’s Electronic Function
Selection (EFS) feature automatically identifies whether it is a solid,
tint, or overprint. It automatically displays the correct reading and color
being measured. EFS allows an operator to read an entire color bar
in seconds. It also reduces guesswork and helps you finish your print
jobs more efficiently.
Spectrally Based
Upgradeable
User Interface
All of X-Rite’s 500 Series models capture
high-resolution spectrophotometric data,
which is used as the basis for all of our
color and density values. X-Rite’s spectral
technology produces the highest level of interinstrument agreement available in densitometers
today.This means you can trust X-Rite’s 500
Series technology to give you the most accurate,
consistent, comparable color measurements from
different presses, among suppliers, between
customer and the printing facility, and from two
or more printing sites.
All instruments in the 500 Series are firmware
upgradeable.You can easily add functionality as
your needs change, maintaining the value of your
investment.
•Sharp/reversible display
•Left- and right-hand operation
•Interactive menu and key system
•Clear recognition of function when measuring
•Auto color select
•Four-color display
•Multiple languages supported
Large Interactive Display
Ergonomic Design
The 518 boasts a large, crisp graphic display
configurable for left- or right-handed operation.
This same high-resolution display also features
full menu commands in multiple languages, to
meet the needs of most any location (including
English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese,
Spanish, Chinese and Japanese plus additional
languages).
All of our new hand-held instruments apply
ergonomic concepts to fit naturally in your hand.
The targeting shoe clearly pinpoints the
measurement area so you get the right
measurement every time.
Intelligent User Interface
An intuitive key-pad uses universally understood
up/down arrow keys and a select key to easily
navigate menu items. For efficiency, we also
included a “back” key, and an “escape” key, which
quickly and easily takes users back to the main
menu.
On Target
Another X-Rite first is our unprecedented
microspot aperture size that is as small as 1.6mm
x 3.2mm. This option makes short work of
targeting special-color or density measurements.
Just locate a bar code, some solid type, or a graphic
element and quickly check the color.
Rugged Construction
The 500 Series instruments absorb the inevitable
bumps of everyday use.The 500 Series carries
the tradition of being perhaps the most durable
instruments in the industry.You will get years of
accurate and reliable performance.
