Masking Port options, including one with glass, for the ColorFlex EZ

Follow

FAQ: "Just want to confirm, the default ColorFlex port that comes with the instrument is an open port (i.e. no glass) and is 1 inch big.  And the smallest masking port that they can get is .5 inches big. Right?"

 

The fixed area of sample view of the ColorFlex is a 25 mm (1.0 in) diameter within a 32 mm (1.25 in) open port (HL# 04-6623-10). Reading a area smaller than the normal fixed view of the ColorFlex means that the port is masking the viewed sample area by the sensor.

 

HunterLab has 3 smaller diameter ports that allow measurements of samples smaller than 32 mm but these ports mask the viewed area of the sensor. Standardization minimizes the masking effect but the limit is typically a diameter half of the normal view (13 mm or 0.50 in in this case).

 

Here are some open, masked port options that can be used with the ColorFlex EZ or legacy ColorFlex 45/0 LAV:

 

04-6623-09 Open Port Insert, 25 mm (1.00 in), Masking

Provides a field-replaceable, snap-in 25 mm (1.00 in) port insert that is open and masks the sample to the 25 mm viewing area of the instrument.

 

04-6623-08 Open Port Insert, 19 mm (0.75 in), Masking

Provides a field-replaceable, snap-in 19 mm (0.75 in) port insert that is open. The instrument typically measures a 25 mm viewing area and this port masks the viewing area of the sample to a smaller 19 mm diameter.

 

04-6623-05 Open Port Insert, 13 mm (0.50 in), Masking

Provides a field-replaceable, snap-in 13 mm (0.50 in) port insert that is open. The instrument typically measures a 25 mm viewing area and this port masks the viewing area of the sample to a smaller 13 mm diameter.

 

FAQ:

"Do you have any masked ports that come with glass?"

 

02-6624-01 Port Insert, 25 mm (1.00 in) with Glass, Masking

Provides a field-replaceable, snap-in 25 mm (1.00 in) port insert with clear borosilicate glass. The 25 mm diameter port masks the sample to the 25 mm viewing area of the instrument. The glass in port is intended to protect the interior of the instrument from sample and airborne particles.
