TS8500 spectrophotometer

TS8500 is a benchtop grating spectrophotometer which is developed by 3nh independently with core technology. It uses a dual-array CMOS image sensor to have high sensitivity and a wider spectral response range, which makes the test more accurate. With a 10.5-inch independent rotating screen, it is convenient and easy to use. TS8500 also supports Xenon pulse and LED two Light Sources. The repeatability of ΔE*ab is within 0.015, and inter-instrument error is within 0.2, and the measurement performance is super stable and accurate.


1. International common d/8, SCI/SCE , SCI+SCE Synchronous measurement

TS8500 spectrophotometer adopts D/8 (diffused illumination, 8-degree viewing angle) which is widely applicable in the world, and SCI/SCE (specular component included/specular component excluded) Synthesis technology, supporting SCI+SCE simultaneous rapid measurement.
