X-Rite i1 iSis

  • Supported instruments: i1iSis 1, i1iSis 1 XL, i1iSis 2, i1iSis 2 XL
  • M-Condition supported: M0, M1, M2 (depending on the instrument)
  • Inspectors: Print Inspector, Instrument Inspector


Features & unique benefits:

  1. Auto barcode Recognition - based on iSis internal barcode-reader
  2. Additional bar-code reader possible (entering additional description)
  3. Pre-scan mode - read unknown bar-code (from any Chart Info compatible layout)
  4. Aliases for any custom bar-code - creates a link between a custom barcode and scanning template.



  1. Track your instrument with Instrument Inspector T-42 Target frequently.
  2. The Calibration Standard (ceramic plaque) path have to be cleaned
  3. Launch X-Rite i1Diagnostic (free utility) to check Instrument at least semi-yearly.
  4. Make sure that you are using a high-quality connection cable.
  5. Be sure that environmental conditions (RHT) are in the recommended range


Specific requirements:

Scanning template In native Mode (without barcode) require very exact values listed on the following diagram. An error may cause huge differences in spectral data (more than 10 ∆E !) Use a specific procedure to be sure that all numbers are correct.


  • This tutorial covers the use of Chromachecker Capture to operate an x-Rite iSis spectrophotometer.

  • This tutorial shows how to use a barcode to automatically select the print condition and printing device that was used to produce the output being read by the iSis spectrophotometer. This automates the process of a quality check to simply placing the leading edge of the output in the iSis instrument to start the identification of the file and scanning of the control strip.

  • This tutorial provides an overview of how to perform a mechanical check for the iSis spectrophotometer scanner. By using Instrument Inspector you can confirm that the iSis is performing within the specification of the device. If you receive a fail at any time, it is a best practice to review this basic maintanence.

  • Using ChromaChecker Capture and Instrument Inspector you can baseline an instrument to ensure it is within ISO standards. Once baseline, the instrument can be checked over time to provide the required reporting for ISO compliance. This check will satisfy the costly need to return the instrument for verification.
