PFXi-880,- 950, -995 Series

PFXi-880,- 950, -995 Series

The PFXi series of spectrophotometric colorimeters introduces a unique concept in liquid colour control: RCMSi technology. You can benefit from the capability for remote calibration and servicing via the internet – saving the cost and time associated with servicing and guaranteeing compliance with standards.

The PFXi-880/950/995 series ensure high precision results from the 16 filter wavelength technology. With an extended path length capacity of up to 6″ (153 mm) and an optional heater to sustain the temperature of the sample to +10°C above its “cloud point”, they meet the demand for consistent and reliable colour data for a wide range of samples.


  • Integrated RCMSi Technology for Remote Calibration
  • Optional Heater Keeps Samples Above The “Cloud Point”
  • Automatic and Non-subjective Colour Measurement
  • Unique Long Path Length Chamber – Accommodates up to 6″/153mm Cells


Integrated RCMSi Technology for Remote Calibration
The PFXi series of spectrophotometric colorimeters introduces a unique concept in liquid colour control: RCMSi technology (Remote Calibration & Maintenance Service via internet). You can now benefit from the capability for remote calibration and servicing via the internet – eliminating any costs and time delays associated with servicing and guaranteeing compliance with standards.

153mm (6″) Sample Chamber
The long path length cell chamber enables you to measure extremely unsaturated, light samples and colour scales which are defined with long path lengths including the Lovibond® RYBN and AOCS Tintometer® colour, guaranteeing compliance with AOCS, ISO and ASTM standards.

Optional Integrated Heater Unit
The PFXi-880, -950 & -995 series are available with an optional integrated heater unit. This is a critical feature when dealing with materials such as fats and waxes whose temperature needs to be maintained at a constant temperature +10°C above the “Cloud Point” of the material.

16 Wavelength Filters
Ensure high precision, accurate spectral data.

Automatic and Non-subjective Colour Measurement
The PFXi range provides absolute results. Automatic instruments communicate in clear terms, accurately and reliably with no opportunity for human error or misjudgement.

Consistent Data Compliant with International Standards
The PFXi range automatically measures colour and displays results directly, either according to the traditional grading scales that have been wideley adopted as industry standards for colour assessment and control, or in terms of internationally recognised CIE values and spectral data.

Very Rugged, Chemically Resistant, Steel Construction
The robust steel construction enables you to use the PFXi even in the harshest of environments.

Easy Maintenance with Removable Sample Chamber
The instruments include a robust steel sample chamber which is easily removed so you can clean it or replace it should spillage occur.

Extensive and Flexible Choice of Colour Scales
You can choose from a selection of over 20 different, internationally recognised scales in a variety of combinations.

Remote Upgrade Facility
Uniquely, however, you do not need to make the choice of scales at point of purchase. The PFXi instruments are upgradeable in the field – so you can add a scale at a later date.

Calculation and Description of “Off-Hue” Status
This is a useful facility that enables you to reveal whether the sample colour is characteristic of the selected scale. Where appropriate, it includes a description of hue difference (eg. redder, greener), relative saturation (stronger or weaker) and an off-hue factor (a relative measure of the distance away in colour space of the sample colour from the “true” colour scale).

Supplied with Colour Control Software for Data Analysis
The software allows you to generate spectral and CIE diagrams as well as analyse spectral data. It also permits direct control of the instrument from the computer.

Conformance Standard, Cells and Spare Bulb Included
For regular conformance checking, certified colour reference standards are also available for routine calibration and verification of test data. Conformance filters are supplied with a Certificate of Conformity – giving you the assurance of their colour values and confirmation that they were manufactured under the control of The Tintometer Ltd’s ISO 9001 quality system.

Output Conforming to GLP Including Date, Time, Sample & User ID
The adaptable software and design allow you to configure the PFXi to your requirements. You can set the display language, program the instrument to only display the scales of interest and restrict access to the menu system.

Accommodates a Wide Range of Sample Cells and Tubes
As well as standard colorimetry cells, the PFXi-880/950/995 series can be used with a range of tubes and standards, flow-through and disposable spectrophotometer cells.

Extensive range of accessories
A thermal printer, sample chamber, additional cells, replacement lamps and conformance filters represent some of the additional accessories you can obtain for the PFXi Series.
