The new Dens unifies three devices in one. It is a color reflection densitometer for CMYK color prints, a film transmission densitometer and a high-precision illuminated magnifying glass for the visual control of printing results. This cost effective entry-level instrument allows everyone to perform a fundamental densitometric quality control on the basis of the reliable high accuracy well-known from all Techkon instruments. The Dens indicates densities, dot area and gray balance clearly legible on a large color display. Automatic color and gray balance detection speeds up the measuring. In addition the device is easily operated by only three buttons. The whole measurement is provided in a split second.
