The FD-D8R is a robust, non-contact, real-time spectrophotometer designed for use in industrial applications. Its novel, compact design allows measurement of color with the specular component included or excluded using diffuse illumination and an 8° measurement angle, without the need to be tethered to optical fibers.

At the core of the FD-D8R is the integration of illumination optics and measurement sensors into a compact assembly. It has a fully sealed, chemically resistant case with a cleanable/replaceable sapphire window, which protects the integrating sphere and internal optics from contaminants. Reflectance is measured in the visible range of 400-700 nm and provides CIE color coordinates for your choice of illuminant.



  • Reflective color measurements -- diffuse/8° measurement geometry, specular included or excluded

  • Outputs -- reflectance and CIE colorimetric data from 400-700 nm

  • Non-contact measurements -- ideal for delicate parts in challenging industrial environments

  • Industrial design -- sealed measurement head protects sampling optics; real-time measurements ensure accuracy and reliability

The latest episode covers the Color and its intricacies. Join Matt Kremens, Solutions Engineering Manager, and Ocean Insight color experts, James Gass and Ethan Montag to discuss color. Topics include the basics of color (1:20); emissive and reflective color (4:38), with examples of each (16:25); and color applications beyond aesthetic considerations (24:40).

To improve product quality and streamline processes, manufacturers seek more effective methods of in-line color monitoring. In this application note, we discuss a versatile spectral system for non-contact color measurements.
