Standox, the Wuppertal paint brand who is known for its cutting-edge technologies in the refinish industry, offers a professional entry into digital colour matching with its new Genius XS spectrophotometer. The handy device has the most modern measuring technology, which enables fast and precise identification of the right vehicle colour formula for paint repairs, without any colour documentation or time-consuming research.
Thanks to advanced LED technology and three-angle measurement, the new Genius XS measures both solid and effect colours. The device is placed on the cleaned vehicle near the paint damage. The colour measurement takes only a few seconds, and an LED display and audible sounds inform the refinisher about the reading’s status. Its ease of use and flexible handling make Genius XS suitable for passenger cars and commercial vehicles, as well as for painted industrial items.
The spectrophotometer is manufactured in Germany and has a large touchscreen with clear menu navigation. With the help of a micro-USB cable, the data can be transmitted directly to the Standowin iQ, the Standox colour software. From there, the measurement is compared with over 200,000 colour formulas, optimised and displayed as a complete formula that is ready to mix. Those who use Standowin iQ online or download regular updates have the advantage of always having access to the latest colour information from car manufacturers. Mixing formulas can be stored on the local drive or behind a password in the Cloud. The precise digital measurement technology coupled with the current colour formulas provide compelling advantages compared to conventional colour formula documentation.
"When using the new, innovative Genius XS in combination with our web-based colour software, the colour matching process is significantly simplified," says Armin Sauer, Colour Management Specialist at Standox in Germany. "The device is an intelligent solution for bodyshops who want to upgrade from traditional colour matching tools to the cutting-edge digital technology."
The Standox Genius XS spectrophotometer, the entry-level digital colour management model, is the improved successor to the proven Genius spectrophotometer. More information about the new Genius XS can be found at standox.com/genius-xs.
