Fabric Samples


Step 2. Measurement and Test Result


1. Do black and white calibration according to the instrument instruction then set instrument setting as follows.

1).Illuminant: D65 2).Standard Observer: 10 degree

3).Reflectance 4). Test Parameter: L*a*b and Delta E

5).Test Mode: SCI


2. Test Method: One sample measure one point to get the test result at single layer.


3. Textile Spectrophotometer CS-820N Test Result

Sample Color Test Result


Name L a b
Target 35.97 43.27 17.78
Sample 36.15 43.54 18.19
Delta Value 0.19 0.27 0.4



From the test result that we can know the color difference between target and sample are Delta E*ab 0.52. It is within the tolerance 1.0, so instrument shows pass.


Besides measuring fabric, textile spectrophotometer can also measure yarn, textile dyeing liquid. The following are the measurement pictures.
