Outputting the Density Balance Chart

There are three types of spectrophotometers to read the chart.

  • i1iSis XL
    FD-5 BT

  • Each of i1iSis XL and i1Pro provides two types of charts: Type 1 for standard adjustment and Type 2 for high-accuracy adjustment. FD-5 BT provides three types of charts: Type 1 for standard adjustment (spot measurement), Type 2 for high-accuracy adjustment (spot measurement), and Type 3 for high-accuracy adjustment (strip measurement).

    Output a chart to which the screen type that has been set by the machine was applied.

    A test chart is printed.

    • If [Type 1] is selected for [Measure Spectrophotometer-1 (i1-iSis)] in step 3, one sheet is output. If [Type 2] is selected, two sheets are output.

    • For [Measure Spectrophotometer-2 (i1-Pro)], one sheet of chart is output with either of [Type 1] or [Type 2] selected.

    • For [Measure Spectrophotometer-3 (FD-5 BT)], one sheet of chart is output with any one of [Type 1], [Type 2], or [Type 3] selected.
