Supported Spectrophotometers are:
- i1Pro3 / i1pro3Plus
- Barbieri SpectroPad
Step 1: Setup Device
Open the Preferences dialog from the bottom left window, to find a section to set up the spectrophotometer. Choose the Device, Mode and Measurements from the list given, in order to read a color directly on textile or on paper.
The readings can be 1x or 3x. When you select a single go, the device will read the color reference directly from the color. The 3x option makes three readings and provides an average value. Click on 'Configure…' to open the options for :
- Illuminant - (A/B/C/D50/D55/D65/D75)
- Observer - (2º/10º)
- UV filter - Perform a measurement on the plain white media to check if the spectrophotometer needs to be set to use UV filter (b* < -4).
Step 2: Calibrate Device
Before you start reading the colors, you will have to calibrate the white reference of the spectrophotometer (only the first time). Connect the Spectrophotometer and place the cursor on the white plate. Click on 'Calibrate…' and chose the option Absolute as it using a white reference. To start the calibration of the device, press the device button or hit the 'Read' button.
