This selection allow to select the optical specularity mode (included or excluded) of the attached instrument.
It applies to sphere based spectrophotometer. Chromameters and 45 degree spectrophotometers do not use this selection.
Instrument calibration timeout
It is crucial to keep accurate track of each head calibration timing. Only an accurately calibrated instrument performs a consistent measure.
This selection provides a selection of time (1 to 8 hours) between each calibration of the color instrument.
A calibration count down is located in the function buttons area of the main screen between the measure buttons and below the tile (standard) icon. This counter indicates the elapsed time since the last calibration.
An error message in this block (Expired) indicates the timeout setting has been reached and a new calibration must be performed.
Instrument serial port
This selection provides a list of serial ports (COM) where the measuring instrument can be connected.
ColorD3 recognizes and handles all ports available in the Operative System. Due to the popular use of detachable USB serial adapters, the software remembers the last selected port even if it is not currently available.
