Datacolor has introduced Guardian, which it says is the next generation instrument monitoring technology and unique predictive maintenance program for Datacolor's high-end spectrophotometers.
Datacolor's Guardian conducts periodic diagnostic instrument testing through a process of measuring reference grade High Chroma Tiles. The process takes just minutes to perform, as the data is collected and automatically transmitted to a Datacolor server.
The data is then reviewed by a staff of specially trained Datacolor Instrument Experts who can detect subtle trends that may adversely affect instrument performance. If warranted, the Expert will advise if service is required to avoid a future instrument failure, thereby avoiding downtime, or worse, production of material that is out of spec.
