We’ve been working for several months on an LED Color Viewer that is easy to use, affordable and portable for use in the office and for taking it to client offices. Well, we’ve finished it at last.
The viewer contains 5 Cree CXB COB LEDs in 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, 4000K, and 5000K, each rated at 90CRI, that are selected with a simple selector switch. The viewer also includes a dimmer, so you can see the effect of light level on color. A rocker switch allows the light to be turned on and off without disturbing selector/dim settings. The viewer is easily folded up for storage and transport in an included carry case, which is padded, and includes room for the cord, as well as a pocket for taking along various color cards. It’s a perfect companion for the samples room, as well as viewing print media by graphic designers, and study by lighting designers when making presentations to customers.
The viewing area is 17″W x 13″D. x 12″H. The side panels are easy to clean, and are hard plastic for taping on materials, easily removed. The hinged design is simple to set up and take down, as we show in the video below:
The viewer is made in the USA, and includes the carry case. Each viewer is measured for CCT, CRI Ra/R9 and TM30 Rf/Rg, with exact results shown on the top of the housing for reference.
