X-Rite RM200QC Colorimeter
Camera-based colorimeter - putting the fun into colorimetry technology
The RM200QC Colorimeter lets you compare the color between standard and sample in the same way as the “big” spectrophotometers. It stores 20 standards and 350 samples, which is sufficient for comparing samples that routinely arise on site with the standards saved and for saving the measurement values obtained at the end of the day in report form or as a CSV file on the PC.
Checking for the right color is now fun with this cell phone-sized device, as it’s easy to handle with a 5-point navigation and enter key for menu management and thumb-operated measure key on the side. The device saves text input and hue images for each sample and thus brings a whole new dimension to traditional colorimetry.
The new operating concept has the highest possible quality of color information about the samples, making it quick and easy to compare color.
We’ll give you a one-week trial with a charge for use of 50 Euros, which will of course be offset in full if you purchase the device (plus a 6.90 € delivery cost which we regret we are unable to offset).

- Standard/sample quick comparison
- Stores 30 standards and 350 samples
- Types of illuminant D65/10° and A/10°
- Standard and sample absolute values
- ΔE* can be set as required - ΔE*, ΔL*, Δa*, Δb* individual values
- Sample image, spectrum locus graphics, visual color samples of standard and sample
- PDF test report and CSV generated by USB connection
Simple color comparison procedure:
- Click on Color Match in the menu and select Measure Standard
- Place the colorimeter onto the specified color sample and activate the measurement function with the thumb
- When the measurement has been taken, the display automatically moves to Measure Sample.
- Place the colorimeter onto the surface of the sample and activate the measurement function with the thumb
- The display will now show Pass or Fail with ΔE* depending on the pre-set color tolerance ΔE* (Figure 1) and in other windows (Figures 2 - 4) the absolute values L*a*b* C*h°, the deviations ΔL*a*b*, the spectrum locus and a photo of standard and sample.

The built-in calibration standard is located underneath the device in the cover for the camera aperture. As a result, the measuring aperture and the standard are protected against dirt and the calibration tile cannot be “lost” (see right for detailed picture).
Perfect for getting started with colorimetry, when quick color comparisons are needed but the results obtained do not need to be communicated to others. For trades and crafts, goods in checks, random sampling, quick comparisons, monitoring trends...
Not suitable for industrial production with strict quality requirements (e.g. the automotive industry) and internal and external data transfer. Limited suitability for curved parts.
The RGB and/or XYZ measurement values cannot be directly compared with those obtained from spectroscopes. The values will not be inferior but they may vary. Our tests are extremely consistent with professional instruments with 45/0°geometry.
