Select proper eXact configuration

1. Models

  • Basic — NOT recommended — this version is not supported by CC Capture, no spectral data can be exported due to to license limitations
  • Standard — This is recommended to CC Capture users — offers all capabilities of Print and Color Inspectors
  • Advanced — bring more built-in options — but no extra capabilities for CC users 
  • Xp Option — dedicated for Flexible Films, doesn't support M3 data

2. Aperture

eXact can be ordered with different Aperture  1.5,  2,  4,  6mm. The most popular Aperture is 2 mm and this is a typical choice for Offset printing, however, the user has to understand that aperture is related to screen frequency and minimal patch size. 

3. Scan Option

For Print Inspector it is critical to capture data in a faster way - not by pointing each patch manually but by scanning it during movement. Optional trolley and components inside the instrument are required to use this feature. The instrument has to be prepared in the factory. Read X-Rite article about Scan option


4. Limitations

When planning to use eXact with CC Capture please read the dedicated manual page.
