ProGraphic Options



The Epson SpectroProofer™ is an optional, high-performance, in-line spectrophotometer that can be added to a Stylus Pro 900 or 890 series printer. When driven by an appropriate RIP it enables precision proofing and addition of colour management into a commercial or flexographic production workflow. It enables Photographers and artists to be assured that their final output will be a true reflection of their intention. Designers can produce internal reference material as well as colour accurate samples for client approval. Printers can produce contract proofs, colour certification labels and material for production control.

The SpectroProofer provides an extreme level of measurement accuracy which conforms with ISO-12647-7. It enables media calibration and output verification to ensure that artwork transitions from file to print with precise and accurate results. When used with appropriate software, the process can be configured to work automatically so that colour consistency is maintained from one print to the next.

The SpectroProofers ships as a series of kits that contain a mounting unit to suit specific Epson printer models and an ILS sensor unit. 17" models include a support SP-4900 & SP-4880, 24" models support SP-7890, SP-7900 & SP-WT7900, while 44" models support SP-9890 & SP-9900.

There is a choice of three sensor units:

  • The ILS 20NUV is designed to work with standard media stocks. When this sensor is used it provides calibration to the ISO M0 standard.
  • The ILS 20UV has a UV cut filter for media that incorporates an optical brightener. When this sensor is used it provides calibration to the ISO M2 standard.
  • The ILS 30 incorporates a selectable UV cut filter that can be adjusted via software to support different media types and calibration to suit ISO M0, M2 and M1 standards.

All models are simple and easy to install. They come with instructions and utility software to suit Mac & Windows operating systems. They are backed with a 1 Year On-Site Warranty that can be extended through purchase of an optional SpectroProofer Service Pack.
