The Lovibond TR Series of spectrophotometers and reflectance meters allow you to measure a variety of unique surfaces. Offering a consistent and accurate colour measurement, the TR series will reduce rejection rate and help improve your production speed. The ergonomic design and flexibility of the devices make them perfect for a variety of different industries including paints, coatings, plastics, textiles, printing, food, cosmetics and creams. Select from our product range below and find your colour measurement solution within the Lovibond TR Series.

  • Handheld and Portable
    Weighing only 600 grams, the TR 520 is the perfect lightweight portable spectrophotometer. It’s compact and ergonomic design offers easy one-handed operation, helping to prevent operator fatigue and enabling more measurements per hour. Offering the possibility of 5000 measurements with 8 hours battery life enables the TR 520 to be used anywhere on site for a prolonged period of time.
  • Accuracy
    Giving accurate and repeatable results is what the TR 520 does best. The on board camera based locator, enables the user to position the instrument accurately on the chosen sample with minimal contact. This feature dramatically minimize the chances of geometric metamerism.
  • Aperture Options
    Choosing the correct aperture size for your surface is extremely important for accurate measurement. The TR 520 gives you the flexibility to adjust aperture size from 10mm/8mm to 5mm/4mm with the switch of a button. This adjustability of aperture helps to ensure the instrument is perfect for your measurement needs.
  • Calibration
    The calibration board supplied with every TR 520 incorporates a white tile and black calibration plate. This allows minimum and maximum readings to be checked every 24 hours.
  • FREE Software
    As standard, the TR 520 comes with a FREE PC software package. The OnShade software allows for a detailed data analysis which can then be shared or printed via the optional micro printer accessory.
  • Suitable for Multiple Applications
    The versatility of the TR 520 means its suitable for multiple applications and has the ability to report CIE Lab, XYZ, Yxy, LCh, CIE LUV, Hunter Lab colour spaces, ∆E*L*a*b*, ∆E*C*h°, ∆E*uv, ∆E*94, ∆E*cmc(2:1), ∆E*cmc(1:1), ∆E*00, ∆E Hunter Colour Difference Formulars; and can be set to D65, A, C, D50, D55, D75, F1, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6, F7, F8, F9, F10, F11, F12 illuminants. In addition, the TR 520 can report a wide selection of other Colorimetric Index’s: WI (ASTM E313, CIE/ISO, AATCC, Hunter), YI (ASTM D1925, ASTM 313), TI (ASTM, E313, CIE/ISO), Metamerism Index (MI), Colour stain, Colour Fastness, Colour Strength and Opacity.
