The NCS Colour Scan 2.0 allows you to scan and capture colour and identify the closest NCS colours even from a multi coloured sample. This powerful, portable colour measurement tool – developed by X-rite in cooperation with NCS Colour AB offers a range of features to help the user accurately read, use and implement colour.

The Color Scan 2 also isolates colours within a multi-coloured pattern, identifying up to 4 different colours for developing matching or complementary colour palettes. In this way it is more sophisticated than the Colourpin II or Colourpin Pro

Lightweight, easy to use and infinitely adaptable, NCS Colour Scan 2.0 gives the NCS notation of a selected colour from any surface. Preloaded with the original 1950 colours, a manual is provided in the datasheets section to enable it to be updated with the additional 100 colours to the complete NCS 2050 collection. You can identify colours on walls, render, carpets, furniture, flooring, and clothing.

Used to define colours of walls, carpets, furniture, textiles, etc. with one simple click. The colour information is stored in your Colour Scan, which also gives CMYK and RGB translations and lightness value.

  • The built-in pinpoint screen can isolate colours from the smallest of patterns.
  • Features memory for storing up to 100 colours and lets users add text or voice tags to each entry.
  • Displays colour translation information into RGB and CMYK in seconds, and gives the colour’s availability and location in the NCS Index and NCS Exterior guides.
  • Reads lightness and LRV.
  • Suggests similar colours to help create combinations on-the-go.

The NCS colour notation identified can be used as colour references when purchasing paint, decorative materials, or industrial products and if you require a physical sample (recommended for accuracy) then sheets of individual NCS colours may be purchased.
